If blending styles sounds appealing to you, an eclectic bedroom design could be the answer! Eclectic style is many things in one. On one hand, it’s an approach to styling a room by mixing elements of various styles in a harmonious way. It is also a globally-inspired look that celebrates a variety of patterns and furniture styles, both old and new. Eclectic design is perfect for a bedroom with its welcoming feel and informal aesthetic. When scrolling through our eclectic bedroom design ideas, it may appear as though there are no ‘rules’, no common color palette, or even a commonality in layout. Eclectic style is unique in that it’s a curated look (great for those estate sale hunters!) which gives an opportunity for a highly personalized approach. In an eclectic bedroom, you may find that the bed is adorned with layers of throw pillows in various textures and patterns. The rug below shouldn’t match perfectly but could be another layer of textural and colorful delight in the space. A bed that feels a bit more bohemian, with woven natural fibers as the headboard, could pair with a set of traditional style vintage nightstands. It’s the curation of the collected pieces and global inspiration that makes this style come alive. Eclectic bedroom ideas range far and wide, but like any bedroom, you don’t want it to be messy or visually cluttered. There is a fine line between eclectic and a whimsical mess, but keeping some type of aesthetic in mind when designing an eclectic space can help you from feeling overwhelmed by the mix of elements. One of the most important elements of an eclectic bedroom layout doesn’t actually take up any square footage, not horizontally at least! Artwork can not be forgotten in an eclectic style space. From gallery walls filled with photographs, mixed media walls with art, clocks, mirrors, you name it, to a more classic gallery wall of collected art, the walls in an eclectic bedroom need attention. Because a bedroom is a personal space, this is where you could display your favorite art that brings you joy but maybe doesn't fit into the other areas of your home. Mixing frames, styles of art and media can be a sure way to create a one of a kind eclectic art wall in your bedroom. The best part about eclectic bedroom design is that the rules bend. If you find yourself drawn to a more youthful bohemian style, this style will work wonders for you. If you have a collection of pieces from your travels, from art to furniture, and want them to all live in harmony, this style is also for you. There is much to be seen and said about eclectic design, so please enjoy our eclectic bedroom design inspiration to start your journey!
A modern woven headboard, traditional nightstand, and abstract art might seem too different to go together. Still, as this space proves, they can complement each other very well thanks to a unified natural wood tone throughout each piece.
Clean lines and rustic materials come together in the bedroom for a vibe that's equal parts edgy and cozy. To get a similar look in your space, try pairing organic materials like a woven cane (seen on the headboard) with graphic patterns and simple foundational furniture in dark tones.
You don't need color to make a statement in your bedroom! Layer a sheepskin skin over a textured woven style and keep the mix of texture going in your accent pillows ranging from velvet to braided or fur. A funky lamp brings in an eclectic vibe and crisp white accents keep the room feeling clean and light.
We love mixing wood and metal finishes to keep things feeling fresh and interesting. Using red as an accent color throughout this classic bedroom design keeps the palette feeling intentional. A bench at the foot of the bed mixes modern and traditional elements while adding a pop of pattern!
For a full and dynamic look, styling the foot of the bed can be the “cherry on top” to an amazingly styled space. Normally one would place a bench near the end or maybe a few baskets for storage. With this design, we got creative and knew that this would be the perfect place to display a quirky and artsy seating piece that was the perfect representation of the eclectic style.
