I know the description says what eclectic is but can someone give me some ideas?
Yate, "Eclectic is a MIXTURE OF STYLES of various periods, however, not all styles or mixtures of woods are harmonious, and here is where, according to some professional designers I talked too during my magazine writing career, the "feel" comes in . If one selects certain commonalities when pairing different styles, the eclectic combination will be relatively successful. From what I have seen so far, most of the contest entries feature modern rooms without much of an eclectic look. In addition, very often the votes go to interiors that appeal to the voters, regardless whether or not they adhere to the guidelines and purpose of the contest. In this respect, some of us have pointed these incongruities out time and again. The only way to correct it would be some supervision of the entries by the contest creators, which in turn would require time they don't seem to have.
Hey, I finished my design a few days ago but I can not submit it to this contest even thought I didn't design it with a whitelabel or anything alse that would hinter it from being submitted. Can someone help me?
One more thing to "eclectic". Eclectic also doesn't mean in ONE period style, it absolutely means , a "mixture" of styles . When I checked the Google link Theadora posted above, even on the page of this link there are a whole number of so-called "eclectic" bedrooms, which in actuality just represent one period style. When one wants to do more than just a bed and a nightstand or bench, choosing various pieces and accessories takes more time and care, but I think in the process it can be an interesting learning experience for everyone.
I think this contest was a great choice by RS, as were the previous ones. Unfortunately, I was not in a position to participate, but I'll keep them in mind for future designs I want to do.
I apologize for using a Google link to show examples of Eclectic bedrooms. Each person who Googles something gets a different result so someone looking at my link will not see what I see. I really should not be using Goole anymore for searches.
The following link is a more stable representation which shows the same result to everyone.
You are on livingspaces.roomstyler.com
Open your design, wipe over livingspaces. in the address bar and delete.
This should bring you to roomstyler.com
If that does not work contact Roomstyler directly and they can change it for you.
Thanks Theadora for the Response, I actually did that before starting designing and I think my account is linked to the livingspaces whitelabel. I wrote an E-Mail to roomstyler and I still got no Response. I will try again but thank you for the quick Response!
Wait a few days before sending another E-Mail. As far as I know Roomstyler staff have weekends off. :)
@lydiaenderlebell I think a lot of people are confusing 'Eclectic' style with bohemian.
Eclectic is all about a mix as Yourself and Theadora rightly pointed out.
A mix of styles, that somehow work together
@ Kitty - You got a point there. When I look at some of my Bohemian and/or Shabby Chic designs, some of them could easily pass as eclectic, especially when I compare them to the designs in the various links Theadora suggested.
@ Theadora, I surely did NOT mean to criticize the links you posted. To the contrary, your links saved everyone from spending all kinds of times researching the subject. Thank you!
@ Kitty, When I look at the designs posted in the contest, you are right, some entries have a strong Bohemian character. I do think, however, that the line between eclectic and Bohemian is a bit unclear and consequently could be controversial. However, since this is not a contest with a huge monetary price,
and since the people making the guidelines/rules are not acting as judges, as usual, entrants and entries can get away with whatever.... I want to add that this comment is not made to criticize anyone, after all, this is a hobby for all or most of us, in which we have an opportunity to engage in an activity we love.
can you tell me why the admins refuse my work from compete in eclectic room contest. it used to be a living room, but I changed it to a room with a sofa and armchair, which is legitimate for the competition, because it also includes a bed, so it is a room that has the option of sitting on the couch which is clearly seen by the mirror on the wall. I see no reason to move the product out of contest. after all, people will decide or not to vote for such a vision of the room, not depending on the administrator but on the people voting, at least it should be like that . thank you all
this is the link of my bedroom
Hi @intdeson its a beautiful design but it isn't a bedroom design.
i know you've changed things around but it in no way looks like a bedroom design.
perhaps do a redesign?
Theres plenty of time to do that and reenter
yeah i change it, i added bed in it which is totally legit . lets say that i m living in real life and in my apartment i have sofas in my bedroom and it looks like living room with bed and yes, for me it is bedroom. but ok. in that case they should write strict rules only bed in bedroom. i like it on my way and i agree it is not bedroom by rules, its bedroom with my rules, at the end it is my vision of the room i mean bedroom. nhf
Hi intdeson, I'm sure it's totally fine to have an 'open concept' room that includes a bedroom space. Your's isn't visible in the image, however. So a small redesign or changing your camera angle to include at least a partial view of the bed should be sufficient.
hi Nico, i was wondering if you could maybe add a few more eclectic items, it doesn't have to be soon, just soon enough, thank you for your help!
I always believed eclectic not only meant a mix of furniture pieces it also often meant a mix of textiles-prints florals strips, as well as the room, being a bit visual busy.
the dictionary definition of Eclectic is;
getting ideas, style or taste from a diverse range of sources.
That means mixing different styles together.
example-antique and modern
it could be say; Chinese and French
1930's & 1970's
minimalist and maximimalist
@desire_design there is no such thing as an 'Eclectic item' eclectic is the way you style and mix things.
@intdeson Your design was indeed flagged and withdrawn because there was no bed in sight, so not seen as a bedroom. There will also be an Eclectic Livingroom contest soon btw. So either you can change the design a bit to include a bed or you can enter it in that contest.
Hello again! I have tried contacting roomstyler for days now so Maybe someone from their Team can help me deattach my account from the whitelabel livingspaces but I got no answer so far. Do you know anyone who can help?
Here is your room, Remix it and go "Save as". It should appear on your profile page just showing roomstyler.com. Because the design was yours to start with my name at bottom left will disappear and you should be able to enter it in the contest.
It didn't work, I think my account is somehow linked to livingspaces because I created my account on it. But thank you Theadora, I appreciate your help!
Hi can anyone help? My entry for eclectic bedroom isn't in the competition - I'm scrolling through the entries and it's just not there. Did I not enter it ? I'm sure I did...
Was it removed ?
Hi bnu, I don't see it either but I know it was there before...it fit the brief so I don't understand why it has gone awol.
Hi Theadora. Thanks for looking. I remember vaguely taking it out of the comp briefly so that I could edit it (something I usually do so that the entry is public after I've made changes to the design, rather than default private) but now I'm wondering if I just forgot to upload it again. Nevermind :(
