Looking to update your interior but feeling uninspired? Are the more popular design themes like coastal, contemporary and country not your style? Well if so, don’t be afraid to create your own unique look and adopt an eclectic approach. It’s popular with interior designers and it’s easy enough for you to try at home, I promise!
“The key is to choose pieces that you love, that reflect your own personality and that you will enjoy living with,” explains Marie Lynders, visual designer at Dare Gallery. “Start your eclectic journey with a standout centrepiece such as a sofa or dining table and use this to create your story.”
However, understandably, getting those standout pieces doesn’t come cheap, so that’s where we come in. Thanks to Dare Gallery, we are offering one very lucky reader a Maddox 2-seater sofa, worth $1,499!
Part of Dare Gallery’s latest range, which features a blend of designer-inspired furniture from retro style pieces through to modern industrial and sleek contemporary styles, the Maddox has a neat solid oak timber frame, sleek arms and legs and button-in upholstery. Available in two colours, you can pick from almond upholstery with a cocoa frame or dark grey upholstery with an ebony frame.
So now you have your centrepiece sorted (if you’re fortunate enough to win that is!) it’s time to continue styling: “Don’t be afraid to mix and match styles; this can really add an exciting edge to your eclectic interior,” says Marie. “Playful use of colour can work really well when creating your individualised interior, as can the use of different materials, such as wood and metal, to add character to your home.”
The final step? “Add a smatter of pretty ornaments and accessories to add a final flourish. Choose items to accentuate your look and that won’t over-clutter.”
When it comes to styling your home with an eclectic look, it’s all about being creative and reflecting your unique personality. But of course winning a gorgeous sofa would help!
