When I think about an eclectic room, I always picture something very involved. With lots going on inside of it – colors, treasures, just... things. But the truth is, eclectic style is more than just having a lot of different stuff. Your home can live somewhere between minimalist and eclectic, and these 8 rooms prove it.

Just take a minimalist room, then add color and texture – not stuff! – to give it that worldly, lived-in look we've come to love.
