The definition of eclectic

Posted on Fri, 8 Apr 2011 by KiM

My previous post talked about a mix of styles. I found another home in keeping with that idea. This one is furnished from elements all over the world – a German chair, a Chinese stool, Balinese artifacts, a Provençal table mixed with Bertoia side chairs, even my favourite – Moroccan beni ourain rugs. Mikel Irastorza, the interior designer, has some rather large kahounas. 🙂 (Via Nuevo Estilo)

That living space is just stunning! Nothing is too 'fussy', clean lines and the bright white walls let each piece speak. Great inspiration!

When you like a variety of styles, eclectic is definitely the way to go. Melding them perfectly is the hard part, however, and this interior did not skip a beat – it's flawless. The attention to detail is impeccable. My favorite features are the oversized pendant lights, clean-lined kitchen, floor-to-ceiling bookcase, and curtain panel in the bedroom. Beautiful!

It all looks great, but I'm struck by how well the stark-white walls showcase all the elements. Fantastic!

I'm stuck on the 3rd and 4th pictures. Omigosh that pottery collection… drool!

Love it – classic, elegant and yet modern. Love the eclectic mix – warm and comfortable yet clean and contemporary!!

amazing home! so many different pieces and so matching!

was just talking to a friend of mine the other day – she suggested removing the sofa in our living room. having the chaises wouldn't work for us, but they are gorgeous! and i would love it if my dining room looked like that!

Any idea how much the provincial table is worth? I ran across a VERY similar one recently, My husband drug his feet on it, though. A good reason to give him a big fat "told you so" would be highly appreciated. Thank you!!!
