The term eclectic is defined as deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources. Eclectic decorating consists of mixing colors, patterns, textures, shapes, and finishes with various styles from different time periods and decorative genres.

We have researched many sources to bring you a diverse but condensed inventory of eleven examples of some eclectic bedrooms to inspire your decorative process. 
 
Neutral toned focal points (such as beds or large furniture) or neutral-colored dominant spaces (such as walls or large window coverings) within your room used to achieve balance within your space are a hallmark trait of eclectic design. Decorations throughout your space in various colors within your color palette can be used to accent your neutral-colored focal point or wall while maintaining an overall color theme. This can be achieved by unifying colors with a piece such as but not limited to a colorful rug, throw pillows, or wall art with colors similar to those used throughout the room. While there are no hard and fast rules for decorating your space, eclectic decorating style consists of a purposeful cohesion within your space.

8. Gold and grey

This modern color combination mixes multiple gold hues with deep greys and blue accents, creating a darker version of the eclectic look. Utilizing the bedding and bedside table to provide the room's neutral focal point allows for the darker grey walls and deep gold decorations to provide a darker backdrop.

9. Deep colored floral

In the following example, the contrasting colors in the bedding and other small decorative pieces strategically placed throughout the room create colorful breaks in the vivid white backdrop. Composed of multiple decorative elements throughout the room, such as the walls, curtains, bedside table, mantlepiece, and lamp, this neutral dominance is a common eclectic design trait. The decorative detail etched in the repurposed mantlepiece coordinates with the floral plants and throw pillow while contrasting with the sharp lines in the warm-toned burgundy and tan throw pillows.

Warm and cool contrasts are another decorative strategy used in an eclectic design, as demonstrated using the warm neutral tan and pink against the cool distressed grey bedding. The bright blue of the accent chair in the corner of the room closely resembles the splashes of cool blue used in the art piece above the decorative mantle and accents the dark blue in the floral pillow's background creating the purposeful cohesive look characteristic of eclectic design.

10. Neutral bed deep cocoa and green

This two-toned wall gives this room a more expansive feel by using white paint from the ceiling on the wall's top portion. The painting technique used in this particular space complements the headboard's lines and shelving with frames on the wall while contrasting the actual art in the frames and natural curves of the hanging ivy plant.

The white bedding mixed with neutral accented throws provides the classic light break in the walls' rich brown color. Various shades of green from the hanging ivy and throw pillows are present in the artwork, bringing the color scheme together. Geometric shape contrasts are often used in eclectic design and are shown below using the curtains, artwork, table decorations, and embroidered bedding. 

11. Soft grey and sweet pink

A softer, more subtle contrast is shown in the picture below. Using contrasting textures and lines while maintaining a narrowed color palette, the eclectic elements can be harder to spot in this example. Keeping a soft pink and deep grey color palette, various fabric textures are combined to create the illusion of depth to the bedding. The solid tones of deep grey are used as the neutral color and perfectly complement the textured grey wall.

The deep grey bedding with contrasting textures combines with soft pink shades to create this comforting color palette. In keeping with the eclectic style, this bedroom contains a variety of lines, from the soft lines of bedding pillows to the sharp lines of the bedside table and the chair's embroidery. Neutral flooring, bedframe, mirror provide a crisp white accent to the space.
