Eclectic style – a way of living that means different things for different people. A style that allows you to blend in different elements and contrasting influences without ever overwhelming you with too much. The art of creating a beautiful eclectic style interior is a delicate one and involves careful balance between just enough and not too much. It does take time, trial and error and addition and removal of décor overtime to achieve that perfect look. It takes a certain ‘layered’ approach and involves ample patience. And with the right poise you have that amazing eclectic room that steals the spotlight and puts a smile on everyone’s face.

Contemporary eclectic bedrooms are currently popular because they give homeowners a chance to introduce their own eccentricities while also staying true to an overall modern design. It is a balancing act between the curated and the impulsive, between the poised and the unexpected, the restrained and the vivacious! Exuding modernity in an understated fashion, this is a look at the most beautiful, sophisticated and cheerful contemporary eclectic bedrooms around –

Curated Use of Color

An essential part of creating the beautiful contemporary eclectic bedroom is the way in which you use color in the space. You do not want to shy away from bold hues entirely as that would lead to a mundane, modern space. Yet, you do not want to overload the bedroom with too many colors; especially if it is a small room. Shades of blue and green are always popular in the eclectic bedroom and as you head in 2020, you might want to try out shades like teal and olive green along with the many pastel, muted shades of green. Stick to two or three major colors and you can introduce tiny pops of other bright hues using wall art, decorative pieces and accents that can be easily switched out.

Balance Between Modern and Eclectic

How do you find the balance between modern and eclectic styles in the bedroom? The answer is to combine your existing modern bedroom with pops of bright color, eclectic art pieces, colorful bedding, drapes, rugs and decorative pieces that enliven the space. Natural light helps immensely in here while removing elements that do not fit in with the look make things better. Do remember that even in the most eye-catching eclectic bedroom, there needs to be a few common elements that link the various pics together. It could be common bursts of color, pattern, style or theme. Find that something that binds things together to get the perfect look.
