If a space that is both approachable and informal, globally-inspired and multi-style and highly curated sounds like your cup of tea, than an eclectic living room design may be what you need. Eclectic style is all about mixing elements and covers a wide range of looks from bohemian to more elegant and polished. An eclectic living room design could feature sofas and chairs that differ in style but are cohesive because of the other elements in the design like the patterns, colors, and lighting. Eclectic design feels familiar and comforting, with an artsy edge and curated look. One on hand, when looking at eclectic living room ideas, you may see a space that feels more youthful; Poufs on the ground, rattan lounge chairs, Morrocan inspired rugs and a lush array of plants. Another eclectic style living room may boast a more sophisticated presence with classic wingback chairs and a chesterfield leather sofa. However different they may seem, both living rooms would fall into the realm of eclectic style. An eclectic living room layout doesn’t call for formality and symmetry but rather prioritizes a comfortable and interesting approach. Functionality should always be a priority in a living room, making the space usable for all who will enjoy it. You may wonder how furniture of different calibers and styles could come together harmoniously in an eclectic living room. The key to pulling a living room together in this particular style is by using bold patterns, saturated color, and mismatched elements that fit together in some aspect. Using a consistent texture of pillow on all contrasting furniture can pull the look together, or even coordinating the artwork on the walls with the rug on the floor can be a subtle touch that brings the space full circle. You’ll see that in our eclectic living room design ideas there is a blend of old and new, an array of styles, color and textures. Curating this style can be challenging, but the end result is a space that is one of a kind and exquisitely beautiful. If this is something you are drawn too, we hope you enjoy our beautiful collection of eclectic living room design inspiration.
We love a good mantel moment. This mantel is curated with small, yet meaningful decor pieces to spark joy this winter season. To get this look, combine organic-inspired ceramic vases with winter greenery such as pine branches. Sprinkle in a few candles and presto–you've got the cozy, Hygge look!
A sophisticated boho-inspired living room. If you're looking to create a casual seating area with a moody feel, try a neutral palette with high levels of contrast. Here dark accents can be seen through out the space specifiacally on the fireplace and windows for an unexpected pop of drama!
Many people imagine a boho vibe when they hear the word eclectic paired with interior design. But this refreshingly modern take on eclectic interior design proves that the style isn't always about rattan furniture and hanging plants. In this living room, a traditional rug adds vintage appeal to a tasteful mix of contemporary and mid-century modern furnishings, creating a look that's both sharp and inviting.
Bold, bright and fun patterns burst from this living room design! Choosing neutral larger pieces of furniture like the sofa and armchair allows you to have fun with smaller pieces of furniture, lighting, pillows, and art! The eclectic gallery wall of art becomes a truly mesmerizing focal point of the room. Mix and match different types of artwork such as abstract, modern and traditional to achieve this look!
Sometimes you want to bring together an eclectic collection of items in a contemporary space. To do this successfully, try to limit the color pallet to no more than four colors. Here gray, blue, tan, and pops of red let our designer go wild with patterns and texture without ever going overboard with taste.
Some people's style is all modern simplicity, while others prefer a more ornate style. But if you want a mix of the two styles together, finding the right balance can be tricky. All the modern elements are in a fresh white in this living room, making the ornate items like the vintage-inspired rug, with its warm shades of red and blue really pop! Then we added a few neutral elements to bridge the gap between the two styles.
This adorable reading nook is chock-full of eye-catching natural accents. The black and white seaside wall art brings the ocean view in from the outside, but the plants and even the leafy print on the pillow provide a refreshing sense of the natural world.
