Eclectic homes and in particular the one we are about to show you often combine many different patterns and elements of old and new, and modern and traditional in it's interior design. This beautiful home in Mumbai is a solid example of a home with an eclectic style. The home is elaborately designed with many different patterns, colours and styles, resulting in a truly unique-looking home. One of the signature looks for the eclectic style is combining different patterns and styles together to create a more complex and elaborate design. For example, the bedroom might have a floral pattern on the wallpaper, stripes on the bedspread and geometrical patterns on the curtains. However, the colours should be matched at least slightly to create continuity in the design to achieve a more holistic feel and design. We hope you will be able to take some inspiration from this professionally designed home by experts on homify. Please follow the links and tags included for more ideas and information.
The corridor of a home can speak volumes about it. In many homes, the corridor is often a neglected area which lacks creative design. However, in this home it is just the opposite—the corridor elaborately designed with intricate patterns all along the walls and ceiling.
Nothing is more welcoming than a cheerful entrance, and the design team has taken advantage of that fact in this example. Big bright floral prints on the engraved white wall panels adds colour to this space, making it warm and welcoming. The fake ceiling with the lighting and floral design make this design complete and wholesome.
Here is another really well-designed corridor in this home. This corridor looks more bright and spacious, mainly because of floral printed glass panels which act as a divider and also it is sufficiently lighted up with a gorgeous red lamp. The minimally decorated white wall on the other side also helps to make the space feel larger than it is.
Many people dream of having an all-white kitchen, although it may be challenging to keep clean and shiny all the time as white tends to show dirt more easily. In this case, the home owners wanted a kitchen that was cool and the all-white colour is meant to cool things down. Also since the rest of the house is quite colourful, the kitchen makes quite an impression.
The children's bedroom should make use of bright, warm colours as much as possible. In this example, the colour red plays the main protagonist in this room. The shelves are red, and so is the chair, the bedspread and parts of the window blinds. Even the fan is red. Using the same colour is important for creating continuity in design, resulting in a more wholesome-looking design.
The children's room comes with an attached bathroom in matching colours. The tone of the red is much darker here though as you can see. We especially love the niche in the wall decorated with colorful mosaic tiles. For a small bathroom like this, it is best to have a small sink and minimal furniture and decorations.
Black and white bedrooms will always be trendy. It is a colour combination which can never go wrong and it offers a most striking contrast, especially when used in various patterns to create an almost colourful, psychedelic feel—for example the Zebra-inspired bedspread and the interesting patterns on the wallpaper makes this room come alive.
Although this bedroom combines many different colours, the predominant colour here is obviously purple. This way the room looks more eloquently designed and more organized, while still maintaining its colourful and vibrant personality.

Did you know a mini home sauna can be installed into your bathroom? Although it may seem like a luxury, many homes are actually investing in home saunas due to the many positive health benefits that using a sauna has. It is also a great way to relax and detox.

The master bedroom is often the most plain-looking room in the whole house, but it doesn't have to be as proven in this example. Many different colours and patterns are combined together to create an interesting and very unique design. The fake ceiling with the golden coloured inlay adds an element of grandness to this bedroom while the purple recessed lighting lining the edges of the ceiling give it a glamorous, chic look.
Although it is not exactly a matching bathroom, the golden coloured sink reminds us of the golden coloured inlay on the ceiling of the master bedroom. A swirly colourful pattern on the wall of the bathroom matches the psychedelic feel of combining contrasting patterns together as was done in the bedroom.
The main living area is divided into two spaces—the living room and the dining room. It's interesting to see how these two spaces can be visually separated by using different types of decorations and styles in the two different parts of the room. Pictured here we can see that the dining room is decorated more elegantly, while the living room maintains a more easy-going, casual look. These two styles balance each other out in the end to create a living area that is cosy and casual yet elegant.
