Regular audiences of homemaking and renovation TV shows who tried some stuff they’ve seen may have grown tired over the usual style.
While minimalist, industrial and retro styles remain attractive, there’s a segment of homemakers and designers who still long for an absolute uniqueness they couldn’t define. Such elements that they don’t see may be present in other fashion like the eccentric style.
Whether you plan to convert your home’s dull rooms to something exciting or you’re starting from scratch, the eccentric practice wouldn’t mind.
But before you begin, it is worth noting that this form is not a vogue, as it is everything that counters what others perceive as beautiful.
It’s like a pleasing ugliness that works. Thus, it becomes a one-of-a-kind stamp that you can’t see anywhere.
If you’re into this kind of oddity, you can incorporate the below small decors in a would-be eccentric perspective.
Take note that the materials to add must depend on your personality and interests. But if you’re just plain out of ideas, don’t fret as we’re here to help.
Everything Weird If Not In The Right Place
Eccentric homes are known for stuff with items that end up in places where you least expect them, like a huge yellow pen behind a shoji-inspired room divider.
If ever you thought of seeing this somewhere, yes, we’re talking about Gigi Hadid’s colorful apartment. Everyone trying an eclectic style should see it, but those gunning for an eccentric appearance should only look for the strange elements used in the picture.
While eclectic style is a combination of various fashion, eccentric is about being unconventional.
You only want the weird items in Gigi’s house, such as the dyed pasta, billiard balls on the island tray, or the torn front pages of The New Yorker issues, then think of how they will work on your setting.
But no, don’t copy her chaos of different sorts as that would mean navigating away from the unorthodox, which is what being eccentric is all about.
A home with fur babies going back and forth with the clutter is far from perfection, but this is no problem for an eccentric setup. In fact, it feeds the entire plot as you can leave the animal stuff on the floor or couch, and it naturally enhances the peculiarity of the atmosphere.
You can even add more animal stuff to one part of the house, which will be enough.
Giant stuffed toys would also fall into this category.
A previously minimalist setting could quickly become eccentric if you add a tall giraffe plushie beside the couch and a few other pieces. It is time to bring out your playful side and be confident about it.
Humor Or Darkness
An eccentric room is often dubbed as a room full of personality. Depending on the stylist or the homeowner, an extraordinary attribute can come in without issues.
Due to this, it makes an excellent opportunity to inject humor or darkness into the ambiance without the guilt. After all, you’re doing it for the sake of eccentricity.
Some items you may inject into the background are funny novelty items, hilarious figures, and books about wit, satire, or witchcraft you have kept for so long.
If you pulled this off, guests are in for an exceptional amusement with the stuff you have at home rather than having a dull visit. A conversation starter, that’s what they say it is.
Your Weird Collections
Stop feeling ashamed about the skeletons in your closet. Display them without the worries of a guest letting out a cringe upon seeing something weird, because that’s the whole point of doing so.
Eccentricity stuns more than anything else, so if you plan to impress, the goal is to make these strange elements work in a setting.
The pieces would vary from one person to another. If you own a collection of unusual antiques, retro vinyl discs, or creepy-looking statues, add them to a spot of your choosing. The more they look out of place, the better.
Picture frames are staples in a typical family home. If you try to climb it up a few notches like turning every member into a mini figure, that seems enough to qualify for the eccentric aesthetic.
If you’re a personalized junkie, time to go full throttle by creating bobbleheads. Manufacturers would take specific instructions and add as much detail as their customer wants.
Once you got these figures, time to arrange them in the living room where the picture frames used to stand. Be careful of their numbers as too much of the same pieces might overdo the styling aspect and not work out as planned.
