There’s something incredibly desirable about a room filled with eclectic décor. Each piece tells a different story… about where it’s been, what it’s seen — and together they create a bigger, more broad story… one that we get to experience visually as we look around, taking in all of the different colors, textures, and styles.
Whenever I go treasure hunting – whether to a thrift store, a flea market, or any kind of boutique – kitchenware is always on my mind. I picture everything from intimate gatherings with friends to large celebrations with those yet to be friends, and I get so much joy in picking out every piece. I choose pieces that speak to me… and I usually don’t buy more than 2 of the same one. This way, my collection is filled with uniqueness – and I’ll never get bored.
This also makes it quite easy to create an eclectic feel at the dining room table. The key? Don’t allow any two place settings to look the same. Mix up the elements, combining different colors and textures. Treat each setting as its own masterpiece; have a different vision for each. And most of all… have fun. Don’t think too much. Just do what you feel. You’ll likely be very happy with what results.
