With Thanksgiving later this week, you've no doubt already cemented your design and logistical plans if you're hosting a dinner. But perhaps you've been having some insecurity over your design choices. We've rounded up 10 gorgeous and eclectic dining spaces to banish any doubt that a varied space full of personality is the perfect complement to a home full of good food and friends.

Eclectic dining rooms work when they are filled with things you love, and elements are balanced. Eclectic dining spaces pack a mean punch of personality because they mix and match contrasting styles, play with bold colors and introduce details that might not normally be seen together.

They are especially useful when a packed house for the holidays means you might not have quite enough chairs or plates or napkins for everyone to use ones that match; in an already mixed and matched spaceā€”no one will notice!

Just don't confuse eclectic with "cluttered" or "messy;" there are plenty of ways of creating an eclectic dining space using a carefully curated combination of items from different styles. It's your dining room, and you're in control of how much art and accessories go into your eclectic space. Don't feel like you have to add more than you need!

What do you think about eclectic dining spaces? Cozy and comforting for the holidays? Or just a little too bohemian for your tastes? Let us know!
