If you thought eclectic interiors were already a lot on the eye, this may not be the trend for you. In 2020 we’re going to see a surge in layered eclecticism – that is, blending and layering of old with new and minimal with loud, plus combining different textures, colours and styles to give the home that worldly, laidback feel. However, to be done well a balance must be struck between contrast and conflict.
Usually achieved through years of gathering and refining a collection of decorative items from various moments and places in a homeowner’s life, the trend can be faked with a few trips to specialty shops and thrift stores, armed with an eye for great pieces.
Eclectic design allows authenticity and personality to shine, so while clean sleek display homes might seem to appeal to the masses, a well-done eclectic look can make homeowners truly feel at home.
