Design Tip 411
These days it seems as if anything goes. In other words, “eclectic” has gone to the extreme. The previous generations were afraid to mix floral patterns with stripes or plaids and I had to encourage them to be bold. However, this new generation mixes everything with abandon and I feel the urge to restrain the combinations so as not to create a “hodgepodge.”
Many cultures mix pattern with pattern. I wonder if our exposure to so many cultures nowadays is part of what is inspiring the current X-eclectic trend. Just as our exposure to more ethnic foods has created a new style called “Fusion,” we are seeing this same thing in home furnishings and, for the most part, I like it. How about you?
“Measure twice cut once.”
Avoid costly mistakes by planning your space. It is actually very easy to do and several furniture manufacturers offer “Room Planners” online to help you. Manufacturers also offer templates for their products and also templates for “generic” furniture, and architectural and structural details of a room. All of these features can be re-sized to fit your home decor needs.
These are also great online tools when you are considering buying a new home to see if your current furniture will fit in the rooms. Remember to leave walking space in the room for pathways around furniture, especially in the Dining Room.

- STICKLEY FURNITURE ROOM PLANNER uses a simple room planner for their products as well as the ability to add lighting, fixtures and other generic furniture. This tool can print the room to scale and can even be emailed.
