To be able to make the house truly our own, we make it a point to display the things we love—from quirky decor pieces to interesting prints and photos. An eclectic style is very layered and unique, giving homeowners the freedom to decorate and express themselves.

However, much as we would like to add more of what we love to display, we need to make sure that the colors and textures do not clash. Interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino shares these tips.

  • Curate items well

Stick only to items that would go with your personality.

  • Maintain a cohesive look

Make sure the background does not clash with the small pieces. Even if you use different elements, always try to maintain a unified look.

  • Choose colors well

Go bright with bigger portions and muted with small portions, or vice versa.

  • Don't be afraid to experiment

Play around with a mix of patterns, materials, and textures. Just be sure not to overdo it.
