Though they're at the cutting-edge, we often find our wood burners add old-world charm to any Staffordshire home. Striking the balance between old and new is just one of the keys to create an on-trend eclectic home. To get the look yourself, try these tips from Vogue and interior designer Sophie Ashby, who has offered up her take on how to carefully style an eclectic home.

Art is important in bringing a room together and it is great for adding interest to bare walls. Look out for striking art that you enjoy to incorporate into your space.

Having an eclectic styled home is all about mixing things up and putting antique pieces alongside modern items. Look out for striking pieces of older furniture that can then be styled with a modern table lamp and a bold abstract piece of modern art placed above. You’ll be able find some great deals on antique pieces if you search local second hand shops carefully.

Remember your home and your interior scheme is personal to you, and you’re the one that’s going to live in it, so it’s important that you enjoy it. An eclectic scheme doesn't have to follow the trends, and is the best scheme to include all the interesting interior pieces you've picked up over a lifetime.

Painting a room can completely re-invent it. Look at adding in some bold colours, whether that be on the walls, floors, woodwork or even the ceiling. Dark, almost black shades are a nice alternative to white, while still letting your eclectic finds shine brightly within the scheme.
