Eclectic style encompasses a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish.
Colors: The palette can vary, but it's best to stick with a few neutrals to help tie all the elements together.
Fabrics: An eclectic look is partly defined by the multitude of fabrics, whether they be patterned, textured or both. Choose a color scheme and stick with a neutral as your grounding force, and add to it with colored and textured solids and patterns and trims, tassels or fringe.
Furniture: Lines, finishes and materials of the pieces in a room are tied together with paint, fabric or a more refined or rough or antiqued paint.
Finishes: A combination of finishes and textures sets an eclectic look apart from the rest. source HGTV
