In the past 5 years there has been a stronger trend with the home decorator to embrace a more eclectic style. Check out Real Living magazine and most of the homes or rooms they feature have this look to them. Now is the time for people to embrace their own look and style. Mix and matching things you have had for years with the new can work really well. You dont have to always replace furniture and big ticket items to get a new look in your home.
Desingers cringe at the thought of a whole room looking like a mirror image of a furniture catalouge. Although the tide is turning on this as even the major furniture companies realise they way forward is to mix it up.

They seem more organic and delightfully random… this my friends is the look of this decade. Fashioned by our need to repurpose, reuse and bunker down in the safety of our homes.
If you are trying to create this look, note that it comes in all different shapes and sizes, as you can see here in these 3 shoots. Its all about being a bit random and adding in the things you really love and even mixing up the colour palette. Let go of the need to have everything matchy matchy.
