For the eclectic decorator, the home is a playground for forward-thinking décor. Eclectic style is all about inserting self-expression and joy into your interior spaces with striking colour choices and eccentric styling – it’s a style not for the faint-hearted. Interiors playing with this fearless décor are incredibly personal to their homeowners, as they unapologetically showcase what they love. Whether it’s a funky colour or contemporary ornamental features, you’ll find unexpected shades on window frames, skirting boards and pre-loved furniture in these homes, as well as courageous choices on traditionally neutral surfaces. Of course, a refreshingly crisp coat of white paint is always considered to be the safest option, but if you are daring enough to step outside of the box, you will open up a kaleidoscope of colour possibilities. Feel a pink phase coming on? It might be time to enter the world of colour...
In our Eclectic Collection, you won’t find beige here. Playful colour-pops are seamlessly brought together in this palette for a revitalized air of positivity. Delicious base shades range from the cool off-white tones of K503 Palace to the refreshing pastels of H300 Lemonade and Y383 Cucumber. Equally full of light, these shades are ideal for surfaces that require a more considerable coverage, such as walls, ceilings and floors. Take your colour scheme a bold step further by contrasting soft tones with vibrant bursts of colour with the floral-inspired H353 Forget Me Not or the retro orange-pink hues of K319 Flamingo. Darker tones come in with the rich cranberry shade of M339 Tango and the spiced mustard tones of L392 Ducato; these shades are set to enrich any interior with an abundance of warmth.
If you’re stuck to where to begin, we recommend choosing a colour that reflects you and your families’ personalities, so be playful with your decisions as your interior doesn’t have to be the same colour forever. Order as many colour samples as possible and eliminate them by trial and error until you are happy with your final palette. Our style and taste are constantly evolving, so choose colours that feel personal to you.
In addition to experimenting with colours, exploring the use of texture elements and finishes in your interior through various sheens, painted surfaces, or furnishing can help tie together your design direction. Play with the contrast of glossy and matte paint while combining quirky colour combinations with your favourite decorative objects.
