Eclectic magic happens when different interior styles and ideas are merged together to create a unique look. This creative style often features an overarching theme, such as rustic, boho, or industrial. In these instances, we witness relaxed eclectic design principles with a leaning into the dominant aesthetic. This process translates well into real homes, where much-loved items are held onto as fashions change. The eclectic style allows us our unabridged passion for pieces from long ago or from sentimental sources. This is also an aesthetic that welcomes a multicolor, multi-patterned approach from the bold and the brave. Come with us as we tour 51 eclectic bedrooms with tips and ideas to help you decorate yours.

Curtains, rugs, and ceilings. All are bold statement pieces and none have to match in color or style. If you love it, it goes.
Not all of us have a spectacular vaulted ceiling to gaze up at from our pillows, but we can all create overhead wow factor with a bedroom chandelier. In a loose eclectic aesthetic, lighting can be modern, traditional, boho, or whatever your heart desires.

Use old components or historically inspired pieces to add a little age and character to featureless modern surroundings. This modern home gains a striking headboard design from a medieval-style door panel.

Say it with wallpaper. Change up a modern bedroom design with a feature wall of traditional wallpaper. This delicate print is framed wonderfully within an arched motif that is atmospherically lit around its edge.

Amp up the contrast with clashing colors. In this eclectic bedroom palette, teal, red, and yellow accents crash together to make an energized look. A combination of bold patterns adds to the visual feast.

Moody modern and traditional melds. Sleek bespoke cabinetry makes a sharp statement at either side of a platform bed. Fill the contemporary cabinets with classic busts and hang old oil paintings above the bed to offset the modernity. Allow the paintings to inspire a moody decor palette that will adhere the two styles.
Statement pieces from two different ages. Counterbalance a large and traditional painting with an equally large and modern light installation to make a striking juxtaposition.
Sharp modern meets soft and mellow. This sharply perforated wooden headboard design would look at home in a minimalist setting or a raw industrial space. However, in this eclectic bedroom design, it is teamed with a much softer boho throw and an elegant pale Persian rug.
Visualizer: Abou Samra Designs
Style through the ages. Neoclassical wall panels and an art deco-inspired bed design make a gloriously decorative ensemble. You may think that houndstooth print is a relatively modern touch, but the first houndstooth check actually dates back to between 360 BC and 100 BC!

Rustic eclectic split. Split an eclectic bedroom straight down the middle with raw rustic wood tone on one side and dark gray modern contrast on the other.

Jarring and uber fun. A shocking pink and deep teal color combo is sure to energize early in the morning. A bolster cushion adds a flourish of leopard print onto this plush teal tufted bed for good measure.
