13-07-2011 Eclecticism: Careful Combinations

When Italian artist Agostino Carracci fused together classic tradition with Renaissance elements in one painting, eclectic style was born. Today, it is used in a much more modern way and is becoming an interior design trend. Home dwellers are combining styles from different time periods and origins within single rooms of their homes. While it is often thought that eclecticism can be created by simply combining a variety of beautiful items, designers will tell you this is not the case. A successful eclectic project will carefully consider the contrasting and complimentary elements of colour, texture, artwork and furniture creating a unique style in its own right.
