An Eclectic Style To Stand The Test Of Time

, , , , , By Catherine

How to describe this interior?

You might say slightly “rustic”, because of the raw, aged wood and stone throughout the place. But it is also classic, with its urns, busts, ornate furniture and Baroque-inspired art. And yet, it is also contemporary, inviting and informal.

Hard to tell precisely what it is, isn’t it? That’s because it is a great example of an eclectic style done right.

Pieces from different styles and eras were combined, and the look is cohesive and harmonious thanks to a restrained color palette. It is a layered décor, with high and low design, and lots of vintage finds.

Furnishings were carefully chosen for their ability to age well, mostly made of authentic materials that will get a lovely patina over time.

The owners chose items that have a story and spoke to their hearts. They also tackled a few DIY projects like the coffee table, bench, and abstract paintings, among others, adding a personal touch.

All these elements combined are what create a home that looks and feels authentic, unique, and timeless.

    This is truly a stunning home. I love the mashup of styles and how they all come together to create something different. I would love to see more on “timeless” design. Other places, I keep seeing information about 2022 design trends and sunsetting 2021 trends, but there is very little on timeless classics. Nordic design is very timeless, but some pieces can still feel questionable when it comes to curves, etc.
