For your next bathroom renovation, why not try something different? Go for an eclectic style that will give your space more oomph. "Eclectic style is all about mixing and matching, breaking rigid style rules, and playing with colour to create something that is totally unique and inspiring,” says Holly Becker, author of Decorate: 1000 Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home.
Use tiles of different colours and styles, cover your shower walls with mosaic tiles, mix and match textures and patterns—do these and you have yourself a statement-making and far-from-boring bathroom.
Get inspired by these locally designed eclectic bathrooms:
