Eclectic interior design provides a tangible connection between our private spaces and the exciting cross-cultural pulse of our times. As image consumers and information collectors, we seem to gravitate naturally to an eclectic mix when wanting to personalize our homes. Opening ourselves to refreshing and redefined notions on beauty and comfort from distant places, funneling into our personal domains furnishings, fabrics, flooring ideas just devised or long extinct, we can create environments that are totally distinctive. Be it a tiny studio apartment or a palatial house, the eclectic home can be the most satisfying outlet for individualism, imagination, and taste.

Library Journal Review

These books are filled with photographs of current designers' interpretations of eclectic, country, and modern interior design. As the series title promises, the chapters go room by room showing these styles in entries, halls, living rooms, dining areas, kitchens, and bedrooms, with each section ending in close-up photographs of the accessories, light, color, and texture used. The books conclude with a directory of designers, manufacturers, and photographers. The whole series should be included in large interior design collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
