Kelli Kaufer Designs added this to 8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Meeting With Your DesignerJan 25, 2015

Don’t box yourself in with one design style, either. Be open to hearing a designer’s pitch on a combination of styles that might surprise you and also save time and money. For example, we might consider looking in other rooms of your home to swap out furnishings that will refresh and bring a new feeling to a room rather than buying all-new pieces. That old vintage chair in the basement could be just the piece you were searching for to break up a modern room.

This room is anything but basic. Yet it's got all the same components as every other bedroom: a bed, bedside tables, a carpet and lighting. It's the textiles that make this room what it is — cleverly connected. The bright, bold, bedding mixed with a graphic multicolored carpet and pillows that play off the colors in the rug actually do "match." It's a color mix that breaks the rule that everything in a bedroom needs to be low key to be calming. For me everything needs to work together and be beautiful to make a restful space.

Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Bright WhiteJun 5, 2012

Bright white is the color of choice for an eclectic room where one color is not dominant and the eye is divided among lots of vivid shots of color. Anything else on these walls would muddy the effect.

Style Secret: Cohesive Color and PatternIn an eclectic room, you almost have carte blanche with the color wheel — almost. Pair bright citrus hues with shy pastels, mix and match every shade of green, restrict the palette to basic black and white. Likewise, you can combine sassy stripes with a mod floral and overscale chevrons. Conventional wisdom wags its finger at you? Bah, we say.Road-test it: However, and this is a big however, the scheme needs to make sense. If you try to bring in every single shade you love, or if you pile up patterns with no restraint, you'll be left with a mess. For example, the bedroom here has a lot happening, from the bold print coverlet to the zigzag rug. Now imagine adding a patterned wallpaper or brilliant paint. Feel the headache coming on? Instead, a handful of strong colors and motifs enliven it without overwhelming it.

More vibrancy abounds; this eclectic room makes a geometric rug and a hot pink and white Chinoiserie bedspread sing. Instead of grounding the bed with a big headboard, the homeowners opted for a bold piece of art. Decorate Tip: "Layer textures to create a sense of opulence, such as a glossy satin bedspread topped with a mohair throw, or smart white Egyptian cotton finished off with a delicate linen fringed throw."
