We LAUNCHED our website!

by Eclectic By Design on July 24, 2013

Welcome to Eclectic by Design!  We are thrilled to have you visit our website.  For my first blog I thought I would give you a little background on who we are and how our business got it’s start.

4 years ago, I started on an adventure to discover if what I love could become what I do!

What I love is searching for wonderful unique items to bring to my home and to the homes of friends and family.  So with support of my husband (and  his strong back),   we  launched ourselves into our grand adventure.  Almost  two years  ago I was able to quit my full time job and fully devote myself to my own business!  Now I am able to pursue the quest to bring unique treasures to your home.

And how we have grown!  .  At this time, we are located in 6 different places throughout the Denver Metro area in mostly Antique Mall locations.  We invite you to follow us via our website and to be sure to come see us!  In all of our locations you will find an ever-changing collection of quality antiques, home accessories and gift items. We, both Scott (my husband of the strong back) and I have discovered a passion for antiques.

We love:

  • Country Primitives:  anything handmade or with beautifully time-aged peely paint.    If we find it behind some old barn – better yet!
  • Early American Antiques:  which we fondly call  “east coast” antiques made out of hardwoods such as mahogany, cherry and  maple that  date  from the 1700 – 1800’s.
  • 18th  and 19th Century French/English period pieces imported from Europe either last week or hundreds of years ago.


My goal in finding items to bring to you, is to combine the new and the modern with the charm and appearance of an object that has grown beautiful with age!  My style of decorating is “eclectic”!  Here are a few of my tried and true  – for me –  philosophies in decorating.

  • If you mix objects you love…with color you love it all comes together.
  • You don’t want everything in a room to be perfectly matched.  You need surprises!
  • Let the things you love tell the story of your life.
  • Things that are old, have history…they ground you and the rooms  you live in.
  • Mix it Up!    Bring items into your home (new or old) that bring whimsy, humor and life!
