Mixt

The beauty is in the mix. While many rooms conform to a particular style, eclectic interiors defy a singular label. They incorporate furniture, artwork and accessories from different time periods and various places, resulting in a look that is layered and collected rather than contrived and "decorated." Individual items in eclectic rooms may not seem spectacular in isolation; combined with other disparate pieces, however, the result is a cohesive, unique -- and very chic! -- interior.

Here are a few designers that masterfully display the art of mixing:

The art of mixing and matching requires experimentation. Try adding an item into a room that doesn't quite seem to fit...chances are you'll be unexpectedly pleased with the result!
