When it comes to deciding on the interior of your home, you’ll find you infuse many eras and styles to make the space unique to you. Eclectic is the art of combining two or more trends or designs. However, one of the newest interior trends we’ve seen this year is eclectic glamour.
In this blog, we’ll look at how you can incorporate the beautiful design in any room of your room, inspiring you to be a little daring this year!
What Is Eclectic Glamour?
Based around a mixture of periods and styles, eclectic glamour is a unique interior trend as it allows whoever wants to incorporate the trend to personalise it in any way they like. It is one of the most difficult trends to get right, because the space should remain visually balanced.
Whether you mix and match modern with traditional elements, bold metallics with snug accessories or red with purple, eclectic glamour allows you to create an interior entirely personal to you!
Which Colour Palette?
Anything goes with eclectic glamour; however, the room should be balanced, and the colour is a significant factor in helping. Our recommendation would be to opt for rich tones, such as emerald green or royal blue, but balance out the bold colours with warmer tones, such as mustards and peaches.
To add that glamourous touch incorporate metallics touches! Think handcrafted copper, pure brass, luxe gold and polished pewters. There are a number of ways you can add these luxurious tones throughout your home, including with our vintage ceiling lights. These are handcrafted by skilled artisans with high-quality raw materials!

Over the last few years, bathroom interiors have become increasingly popular. We tend to spend quite a lot of time in this room of the home, completing many different tasks, so it’s the perfect place to inject some eclectic glam!
Add character through different textures and welcome items into the space which may not conventionally be placed in the bathroom, such as antique rugs and chairs.

Our recommendation is to play with the textures on the walls and floors, mix and match patterns and materials to create something unique, such as incorporating bricks with a patterned floor, like the bathroom interior above.
Metallics are the perfect addition to combine with any textures; our Brass Sleek Edison Wall Lights look beautiful placed either side of the mirror, creating enough illumination for any bathroom task, while injecting a bit of glam!

The look shouldn’t lack focus, and therefore it’s suggested to create a focal point in the space, the perfect way of doing this is by opting for a gallery wall! You can combine prints and images which you love without needing to stick to a certain theme.

The Dining Room
There is no right and wrong when it comes to eclectic glamour; you can be as minimalistic or maximalist as you’d like. One way to ensure you add a touch of glam to any space is by incorporating metallics, such as brass and copper.
