About us

Welcome to Eclectic by Design!DSC_0119

In 2010, 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.  However, my home was full to overflowing but my love for “the search and the perfect find” was still present.  So with support of my husband and his strong back we launched ourselves into our grand adventure.  In 2012 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 4 different locations throughout the Denver Metro area, and we are developing our Rubylane online store.   In all of our locations you will find an ever-changing collection of quality antiques, home accessories and gift items.   Whether you are looking to spice up your college dorm room or you are searching for a unique and luxurious piece for your dining room, Eclectic By Design has something for you.

Both my husband Scott 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:  originally from the east coast –  antiques made out of hardwoods such as mahogany, cherry and  maple that come 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 have 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 room you live in.
  • Mix it Up!  Bring items into your home (new or old) that bring whimsy, humor and life.

Eclectic By Design can be found in 4 locations in the greater Denver metro area  including The Antique Exchange,  The Brass Armadillo,  Homestead Antiques, and Noble Treasures. Look for more detailed information at the “Our Locations” page.
