What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ah Kim, queen of the eclectic mix, shows us how it's done!
Kim- Desire to inspire: Do your research and think things through! I am very impulsive when it comes to design, and I may see a photo online or in a magazine and think YES! I want that in my home! But then I have to remember that I have limitations – like the fact that I have 6 cats and what I bring into my home needs to be cat-friendly, or that my house is only 12 ft wide and 926 sq ft so I have to make sure items are of suitable scale.
Becky Harris added this to How to Make Dining Fun!
Instead of a matchy-matchy dining room set, mix a bunch of styles.
Lily Gahagan added this to Oriental Rugs Beyond the Living Room
Here, a kilim looks eclectically marvelous juxtaposed against modern dining chairs.
Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Pets: 50 Cats Cozy Up at Home
Once sleeping is done, it's time to head to the kitchen to see what's going on — and hopefully grab a snack.
Lisa Frederick added this to Go Global With Kilim Rugs
Most kilims feature a geometric pattern, sometimes simple, sometimes complex. That's one reason they transition so easily from traditional interiors to more contemporary ones: They blend a surprisingly modern sensibility with an old-world mien.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Easy Ways to Hide Your Home's Flaws
These folks were stuck with dingy and dated flooring, but completely overcame it with a wonderfully colorful area rug. Area rugs are a renter’s best friend.

This is an eclectic blend of mid-century modern furnishings (Verner Panton 'S' chair, take a bow) with global style accents, such as that exquisite dhurrie rug with its geometric patterns, the runner on the table, and that Asian-looking storage unit on the left wall.

Renters often complain about ugly, dingy floors, but updating the floors can be an expensive proposition for a landlord. Cover up the mess with cool area rugs - as an extra bonus, they muffle sound.
