DESIGN INSPIRATION //

ECLECTIC STYLE: The Do’s & Don’ts Sunshine Coast-based designer Adrian Ramsay shares his tips on how to achieve the right balance in eclectic styling. Often the best eclectic styles are created by artists and highly creative people who have no rules or guidelines to follow. The space becomes more about placement of things rather than what each item is. Generally speaking, an eclectic style has always got quirky items that are like art pieces purposely placed within the space. These art pieces may be sculptures, collections from travels, hand-me-downs from grandma or parents. A boho eclectic style has elements that move from rustic to more formal – generally this style grows from someone who’s grown up with their mother and/or father who’s an artist and they’ve learnt how to design through a lifetime of collecting and observing. Upmarket luxury eclectic style is often characterised by large open expanses with sections of colour, mixed patterning, mixed textures, clashing artworks and handmade pieces scattered through a room.
