Look to Love: Modern Eclectic

I’ve always loved interiors that look perfectly layered and that tell of the homeowner’s interests and travels. While this can be achieved in any style, more often than not, I find that the best, most beautifully layered rooms tend to veer towards the eclectic side. Pairing that with clean, modern lines can result in some seriously amazing spaces.

{Designed by Pamplemousse, this space features some incredible architectural elements like the soaring windows and gorgeous herringbone floors. The art and furnishings elevate everything to a new level.}

Do you embrace this type of style or do you prefer something more traditional or “focused”?

Absolutely love the Nate Berkus room. It is so inviting and bright. I could plop down on that blue couch with a book any day.

These are stunning, particularly love the spaces incorporating the modern art. I'm not sure I could live with so many elements in my own home, I'm a touch more minimalist. Makes me want to incorporate some sculptures on pedestals somewhere in my house.

I think this is definitely my style, with a touch of glam. I like that, I'm going to use it, "modern eclectic"... ;o)

For me eclectic is the only way to go if you want to get a truly unique, personalized look. These are beautiful examples!
