Have the best of both worlds when designing a home infused with an eclectic contemporary interior design style. With the help of interior designer Kendall Schmitt, we’ve put together a guide to help you design with absolute ease. “This eclectic contemporary style of decorating is defined by its simplicity, subtle sophistication, deliberate use of texture, color and clean lines. The green pops of color throughout the model home also complement the great landscape from the community at Audubon,” says Schmitt. Eclectic contemporary manages to meld two seemingly opposing styles in a way that still maintains balance and a cohesive feel to the space. We’ve selected a few pieces from our model home at Audubon that you can add to your cart right now. 


Create the ultimate work-from-home office with a few of these elevated pieces. It’s important to have a well-lit space while you’re working, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. This elaborate chandelier is truly a work of art on its own, while still being a functional element in the room. Cozy up the space with a simple neutral rug and introduce a few pieces of art in a complementing color to tie the whole room together.

The kitchen is every at-home chef’s safe haven, and should be functional while still reflecting your sense of style. The rustic dark gray countertops and white cabinetry give the space a sharp and clean look, pairing well with the stainless-steel appliances and the overall neutral decor. Not only do the all-white elements help to open up the space, it keeps the atmosphere feeling light and bright.

The deliberate use of texture is one of the hallmarks of eclectic contemporary style. Notice the subtle textural detailing on the console table and how it perfectly frames the space, as well as the artwork above it. The heathered look of the dining chairs also helps to create the appearance of texture where there might be none at all, giving a more dynamic look to the piece itself.

The bedroom should be your own personal sanctuary, allowing you to rest peacefully during the night and awake in the morning with ease. Add luxurious touches like a velvet comforter to elevate your space, keeping with neutral colors throughout to maintain a sense of balance.
