Eclectic Style:  is a rather avant-garde style of interior design that encompasses a diverse variety of periods, styles and tastes brought together by utilizing colour, texture, form and finish. This matching of various styles, periods and elements results in a multi-layered and highly individual interior loaded with interest.
