Dani shares some thoughts on designing a unique living room
What makes a space eclectic?
I think that a balanced blend of styles is important. The proportion and scale of the pieces have to have a cohesive rhythm. Overall, that is what makes a space eclectic.
Are there certain materials, patterns or textures you like to work with when creating an eclectic space?
I love mixing different wood grains and finishes in a space. I also think it’s interesting to add the imperfect textures of handcrafted items – I like to focus on adding a few sculptural elements that have more of an organic feel. The trick is mixing all these elements together and creating a space that feels elevated and interesting to look at.
Where do you gather your design inspiration from?
I mostly gain inspiration by observing other cultures and studying their architecture and design throughout the centuries. I’m especially passionate about Brazilian Modernism, perhaps because that’s where my professional training originated.
How has Wescover helped connect you further to your design values?
I love that Wescover allows me to connect with small local creators, and this is so valuable. It helps me bring unique, one of a kind pieces to each project. I love the thrill of finding undiscovered brilliant artists and creators. Just think of all the new, diverse voices and communities yet to be found and highlighted!
Dani’s Wescover Picks for An Eclectic Living Room

“Paired with more modern elements, this rug adds an “old world” feel to a space.”
Malibu Couch by Dooq
