Understanding Mid-Century Modern & Eclectic Style

Understanding Mid-Century Modern & Eclectic Style

Mid-Century Modern & Eclectic style complement each other perfectly.    As previously stated some designers like to go overboard and list out twenty-four styles whereas i'm breaking down the basics. So lets first take a look at Mid-Century than take a look at Eclectic. 

Eclectic style borrows from several styles, it is a melting pot, freedom of expression, breaks all rules, and evokes imagination with unexpected contrasts. Focusing on color, patterns, texture, personal taste and character.

Mid-Century Modern is described as Masculine. Ever watch Mad Men or been to a store called Jonathan Adler? If the answer is yes you’ve already been introduced to Mid-Century Modern. The style is quirky, geometric bold patterns, neutrals, pop of bright color, bar cats, chrome and brass accents, warm wood finishes like rosewood.

Almost all Mid-Century Modern can be labeled Eclectic due to the quirkiness. However, not all Eclectic can be labeled Mid-Century Modern. I've labeled which Inspirational Photos are Eclectic and which are both.   I'm a visual person so seeing the similarities and differences also helps me better then an explanation, I hope this helps you too. 

Before I incorporate any style I first create a "mood board" of inspiring images. Below are some images to get you inspired that I believe are gorgeous eye candy and meet this style. Second step, is to establish the budget and how much you want to incorporate this look. Scroll down to shop Mid-Century Modern and Electric styles. I've included a wide variety of budget friendly pieces below that range from small accents to large. Finally, if your on a very tight budget or like to be a little more hands on with your decor projects, I've included several DIY's to keep you busy, enjoy!
