Eclectic Glamour: Be Bold with your Home Décor
What is Eclectic Glamour?
Eclectic style is all about mixing elements from different periods and designs. Contrasting details are put together to form a new, well-balanced look where nothing feels out of place.
This year we have seen this well-known trend take an exciting turn and create Eclectic Glamour. A new trend that focuses on combining the grown-up elegance of the Thirties with the playful and sexy influences from the Seventies. It aims to create a visually balanced aesthetic with contemporary influences that’s bold, glamorous, and daring.
How can you incorporate Eclectic Glamour into your home?
Eclectic Glamour displays an eye-catching blend of soft, plush fabric and rich colours such as royal blues, emerald greens, and bright yellows. When partnered with art-deco metallics like gold and brass, the effect of mixing textures and colour palettes creates an outstanding result.
Styling tips to achieve Eclectic Glamour:
Pairing Textures and Colours
Introducing textured accents is the perfect way to bring lush fabrics and colours to your interior, whether it be a statement sofa or smaller décor elements, the choice is all yours. Easy Fit shades are a quick and easy way to revamp your interior with soft materials or abstract designs for the Eclectic Glamour look. Add table lamps into the mix to create a cosy, relaxing glow during the darker nights when you just want to snuggle up on the sofa.
