Give your home an eclectic makeover

Give your home an eclectic makeover

You have likely heard of the age-old wedding tradition of "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." Today, homeowners and interior designers are applying this custom to the home design realm. After all, the relationship between you and your home is an important marriage. Take a look at some helpful tips that will allow you to achieve this eclectic look.

  • Old: When it comes to home design, sometimes classic styles beat the trends. For instance, some old favorites such as floral wallpaper and reclaimed wood furnishings are making a big comeback.
  • New: The key to finding an eclectic style is to balance traditional décor with modern motifs. New trends to incorporate into your New York home include bold colors and metallic window fashions.
  • Borrowed: "Many people seem to be looking for something with character, something that holds meaning or significance. Found objects – your 'borrowed' items – continue to be sought after and serve as conversational pieces in the home," writes Ally Karsyn of the Sioux City Journal. If you don't own a historic family heirloom, browse flea markets, thrift stores or yard sales.
  • Blue: Even though purple is technically the "color of the year," royal blue continues to reign. Try adding this shade to your home through the use of custom curtains and drapes, throw rugs and even furniture pieces.
