Eclectic style is defined by interiors with not only varied styles, but also a variety of eras, color palettes, and textures. It is a style where the goal is to look "collected" over time.

Everyone in your family deserves a stylish little place of their own. We love our cat, Pumpkin, but he isn't allowed on the sofa. I'm just not a fan of pet hair on everything. I wanted to give him his own special spot, without sacrificing style in our home. This easy-to-make pet bed cost only $10 in materials. Instead of buying expensive designer fabric, I created my own look with modern black and white splatter effect. I'll happily let it live in our living room and with its removable cover, I can easily wash it often to keep the air issues at bay.

We like to cook at our house. We'll read cookbooks cover-to-cover as entertainment, subscribe to a nearly ridiculous amount of food magazines and blogs, and think a whole day spent in the kitchen or the grill is a very fine thing to do with a weekend.
And since we like a variety of foods, we have a lot of spices. Like, a lot. Since ground spices only last about six months, we like to buy them in bulk at ethnic markets and toast and grind them as needed.
