Eclectic Decor - Personalize it so no one can Copy Your Style?

Posted by

Your home and its contents reflect YOU and your personality, thus you need to invest time and money to create an ambience that inspires, pleases or relaxes you.

So let's look at your basic Personality Type. Are you an Introvert ( excited by thoughts ) or an extrovert ( inspired by people?)

Generalising here - many Introverts prefer a calming and harmonious home decor with a splash of colour or focuses in their home.

Extroverts from High Extroverts to Less Extroverted may like a more WOW look that either inspires them or impresses guests.

A different perspective on home decor of course taking a very broad spectrum

So the Eclectic look generally that may please Introverts could be a soothing decor like Scandi style with points of focus, Hamptons or Industrial and environmentally aware

While the High Extrovert may gravitate towards Glamour Style, African , Modern or all decor styles combined 

So if you have now ascertained that you are an Introvert - less excited by people generally or you and your partner fit into the Introverted / Extroverted spectrum as a couple - go Eclectic 

Let's work with your style and add the required touches to achieve Eclectic Decor in your home

Starting with basic Scandi which is often a calming beige look - elegant - timeless 

1965 rerun of  Bob Hope and Tuesday Weld movie "I'll Take Sweden' decor was gloriously Scandi then and little has changed since that time. Thus using a Scandi basics look could be an economical investment for you
