I’m known for creating a lot of spaces that can be categorized as eclectic décor. There’s no better (and quicker) way to add fun, humor and personality to a room than with fun accents and accessories that create an eclectic décor in any given space. Vases, bowls, pillows, throws, objects, lamps, small ottomans and anything that is easy to move around create a sense of an eclectic décor. I also like objects that have different incarnations depending on which room is displayed and that can create an eclectic decor feel. Accents also have the advantage to be easily carried around, and as such, they make the perfect eclectic décor souvenir from a trip or a gift for a loved one.
I like quirky, unique and/or artsy accents and anywhere I go (even in my own city, New York) I make a point of finding shops that have eclectic décor and objects that I have not seen before. I use lots of accents in my clients’ projects (in case you are wondering, I’m not a minimalist) and the rooms in my book are full of fun and colorful objects that give as a result, the very cool eclectic décor ambiance. Eclectic décor is also a term that has been abused by editors and bloggers and seems to encompass anything that is different from the regular décor and design periods. But I think that eclectic décor is cooler than that because it has each person’s flavor. One of my most important tasks is to know how eclectic décor really fits into my client’s lives. If I can translate my clients’ aspirations and wishes into eclectic décor, everyone wins.
