That oddball mix of furnishings and decor dotting your house isn't mismatched...it's curated. And that very mindset is the key to eclectic decorating. The Palihouse Hotel in West Hollywood has elevated mismatching to an art form, creating an inviting atmosphere that feels simultaneously rich with history and on the cutting edge of culture.
When you have more books, albums and knick-knacks than you know what to do with, create a library wall. You'll be surprised how unified -- precisely because they were all collected by you -- these seemingly disconnected objects will look when tightly displayed together.
To finish off your eclectic decor scheme, sprinkle in modern lighting and furnishings liberally to freshen up the older and dustier finds that dot your space:
Wilco Glossy Gray Modern Zuo Side Table, 18-Inch Infinity Wine Red Multilines Throw Pillow, Kinetic Antique Brass Robert Abbey Floor Lamp, Barrister Crystal Blue Velvet 38-Inch-Wide Chair
I'll be doing more research on the Palihouse Hotel in a few weeks when I head there for a best friend's 40th. However, I somehow suspect I'll be laser-focused on the menu at that time, so for more images and inspiration from the space, check out this recent design expose by the fabulous Est Magazine.
Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
