Bold eclectic design style guide : the best Instagram accounts to follow for design inspiration, wallpaper sources, paint color guide, and home decor finds for your home!
I’m starting a new design series where I spotlight all different kinds of design. I hope to show how you can draw inspiration from so many different styles, even if it’s not something you would have chosen as “your design style”.
Today, I’m talking all about colorful, bold, eclectic design. I want to show you some paint colors to try, wallpapers to shop for, Instagram accounts to follow, and some fun art pieces for your walls. Whether you want to adopt this decorating style for your whole house, or just want to take a piece or two for inspiration – you’ll love reading this post!

I love how Corinna uses deep moody wall colors and accents with alllll the saturated hues – so much to take in! Follow her on IG here.
Bold paint colors to try:
There’s so many options of paint colors to try out there, and it is SO important to test out paint colors FIRST in your rooms. Because DANG paint colors look so different in every home and on every wall! (Just go to my Instagram and look through my highlights to look for the one called “Painting” – I show how this is so true!!)

Bold wallpapers to try:
Wallpaper is NOT what it once was! This is an amazing design statement to make in any room – and most of these are peel and stick so they’re REMOVABLE. This means they’re perfect for people who don’t want to make a permanent statement, but wallpaper is also a perfect choice for renters.
