Jo Simmons added this to Styling: How to Bring Order to an Eclectic Room Scheme
Keep it tidyIt sounds obvious, but imposing order on an eclectic scheme is essential to its success. Let it slip towards untidiness and all those wonderful treasures will start to look like a burglary in a junk shop, rather than a carefully curated selection of your favourite pieces. Tidy, edit and organise your possessions ruthlessly and regularly to avoid eclectic overload.Read more about eclectic style

Play with unusual furnitureYou might not expect to find a reclaimed vintage haberdashers’ unit in the kitchen. Here, however, a fine example has been repurposed as a beautiful – and highly functional – kitchen island, with plenty of space to stash cutlery, linens and crockery. A special toughened-glass top has been added by the owners so it can be used for chopping and dicing, too. It’s much more characterful than a pristine block of white marble.

Introduce vintageDon’t overlook the opportunity to bring pre-loved furniture into a kitchen. While new cabinets that have been professionally fitted deliver practical benefits, a vintage piece can work equally well and will add a shot of unique character and style. Try a simple wall cupboard or make a bigger statement by sourcing a large piece like this old display cabinet from a department store, which now functions as storage and an alternative island.

Think smart with storageBuilding in bookcases and storage walls are probably a no-no when it comes to renting, so it’s time to get canny with your storage. Go for freestanding and modular shelving units, sideboards and display cabinets that can be shifted from room to room and taken with you when you move.Get creative too by reusing vintage pieces in unusual ways – employ a stack of old suitcases as a funky side table or use a shopkeeper’s cabinet as a quirky island unit, as seen here.Find ideas by checking out more eclectic kitchens
