In Search Of . . . .Eclectic Style
Most web articles define electic style as one “difficult to desegregate and categorize and classify.” It is a mix of time periods, textures, styles and colors. But as an article in apartmenttherpay.com explains, “There is a fine line, however, between a beautifully eclectic room and a room that is merely haphazard and chaotic, with no unifying themes or motifs.” After seeing it defined, I’m sure now my style is eclectic. I love the unique and extraordinary. I don’t like the confines of, say, a period style. But more so, I know this defines my style because despite the ‘rules are made to be broken’ mantra, eclectic spaces are really “deeply personal.” I want them, when someone walks in the room, to shout to the world who I am, and what I think is beautiful.
