Eclectic living room style encompasses a variety of periods and styles that are brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish. Eclectic Design is defined by contrasts, patterns, textures, different styles from different time periods. There is a fine line between a beautifully eclectic room and simply a haphazard and chaotic room. An eclectic approach often creates chic out of chaos and is a fun design project.
Decorating a living room or a family room can be tricky. That’s why I always make sure to speak with my clients and get to know their lifestyle needs. From there, I’ll have an idea what living room design elements I can incorporate to make their home reflect their family’s culture and values. As a Malibu interior designer, I always make sure to apply the essential elements every living room should have. Here’s how I evaluate each piece of furniture, accessory, and how these will make a serviceable living room.
Family Room designs present a multitude of challenges. They must be practical and useful for all members of the family but also attractive and easy to maintain.

As you browse through hundreds of pages of home design magazines and online photos of interior designs, you’re probably left wondering how decorators distinguish between modern and contemporary or traditional and transitional. The design industry is a complicated field that prides itself on constant change and uniqueness. As an ordinary homeowner seeking a design style that suits your taste, here’s how we classify and differentiate traditional design from transitional.
My new client came to me to produce a total living room design on a budget in time for a party she was giving in 3 weeks time. She brought me a floor plan of the room. At first, she was convinced she wanted a sectional sofa, but together we decided a sofa was a better option. She had ordered a sofa and chair from a large discount store. However, when it arrived she realized it was too large. It was also of such inferior quality that she refused to accept it and demanded a refund.
The popularity of green living and eco-friendly home designs continues to rise. We have not only become better stewards of mother nature, we also appreciate the innate beauty of natural elements. Therefore, we want to incorporate this into our overall home design.
An Interior Designer can add a pop of color that invigorates the room. Interior designers can bring a new element or point of view to a room that the owners have not considered and it can make all the difference! In this case, the designer added a sapphire blue sofa as the central piece. Standing as a bright, attention grabbing pop of color against neutral backgrounds, it directs the eye to all other important elements. The sofa, a handsome and strong piece of furniture, focuses this lovely room and encourages you to enjoy the natural outside space. It is reminiscent of seeing a rare blue bird in the trees.
A living room has many functions. It can be used to accommodate and entertain guests, as a place to relax, sip a warm and soothing cup of tea or do completely nothing but hangout. If you don’t have a separate space for the family room, the living room can be used for watching television and spending time with the family.
