Tres Chic: Eclectic

I remember a time when decorating your home meant everything had to match and while matching decor still has its place in very traditional homes, eclectic decorating is more my style because it makes a home feel lived in and allows the home owner more liberty in displaying the things they love.
I have spoken here before about having the things that you love on display. It's a fine art in itself to do this right...
While it's important to have the things around you that you love, ensure that you are always editing. Editing allows those pieces and collections to truly take centre stage and doesn't make a space feel cluttered...I think the art of editing make a space feel eclectically chic, what do you think?

Pick 'n' Mix: Chairs

Don't feel the pressure to be matchy matchy in your home, mix things up a bit and start with your dining chairs.
Having a variety, as you can see from these pics, only adds character. So gorgeous right?!
Try picking some up from the op (thrift) shop and painting them all the one colour or mixing some up from the same era or style, for example baroque etc.
You can see from today's inspiration that anything goes...

Block Party

This Spring/Summer it's all about colour...colour blocking, mixing two or more colours and enjoy the fact that anything goes.
Gone are the days when mixing combinations like pink and red is against the rules, this is now one of the hottest palettes.
Take inspiration from these and start mixing your pieces up in ways you haven't before, think beyond the square and try any combination!
