Colors: The palette can vary, but it’s best to stick with a few neutrals to help tie all the elements together.
Fabrics: An eclectic look is partly defined by the multitude of fabrics, whether they be patterned, textured or both. Choose a color scheme and stick with a neutral as your grounding force, and add to it with colored and textured solids and patterns and trims, tassels or fringe.
Finishes: A combination of finishes and textures sets an eclectic look apart from the rest.
