Eclecticisim – perfect combination of tradition and modernity
Are you dreaming of a vanguard interior with unique climate? Interior designers value arrangements that allow them to break away from rigid rules. What is getting increasingly popular, are eclectic projects, which are an opposite of boredom. Designers face new trends by offering original solutions.
Eclecticism is defined as the direction in the design of free joining elements selected from different styles. The Polish equivalent of the term comes from the Greek eklektikós (‘choosing’). Eclectic interiors are a combination of classics and modernity. This style creates almost unlimited arrangement possibilities. The secret lies in attention to the details.
Interior decoration: controlled chaos
How to avoid a standard interior design based on rigid rules? In the eclectic interior, old furniture will work well. Thanks to little money it can be recovered for a second life. Experts offer their renovation services. However users more and more often decide to renovate their furniture individually, for example taking part in dedicated courses. Expected effect is achieved by painting the furniture into a new, distinctive color, which gives it a completely different character or change the texture of the material. Furniture with classic design and textures will perfectly complement the modern, minimalist interior.
Eclectic arrangements are usually based on one of the following principles:
- combining contrasts;
- combining similar texture and materials, but in different colours;
- combining classic, stylized interior with modern design elements;
- using classic decorative elements in modern, minimalist interiors.
How to get consistent interior design?
Interior designers say no to monotonous arrangements, maintained in a banal convention. How to create a consistent composition? The result will depend on the individual preferences of the user, his sensitivity and imagination. It is worth to inspire with one principle, for example by choosing furniture of different design lines and texture, but maintained in similar colors. Interior designers connect seemingly unsuitable, opposite equipment. They also use materials with texture, which do not match the line of furniture. What is particularly important in eclectic arrangements is sense of taste, because it is easy to cross the thin border between extravagantness and chaos.
Eclectic interiors have recently become increasingly popular. Individual elements are not always compatible, but create a coherent arrangement. Breaking from the rules allows you to let go of the revered leader and create a vanguard interior with a unique character. Eclecticism gives the possibility to let go imagination, the possibility of creating an interior as individual as its owners.Open modal
