Eclectic is often used as a term to describe a design style that brings together some traditional décor with contemporary pieces.

With a renewed interest in recycling and functionality, some designers are referring to an eclectic style as Mix Mash, according to CosmoWorlds.com.

"Mix Mash also stands for a combination of global know-how and local production techniques. The emotional strength and tradition of craftsmanship, coupled with innovation and efficient functionality, symbolise the successful juxtapositioning of high-tech and craftsmanship," the website reports.

Whether a consumer's choice of Mix Mash is to combine different ethnic styles, plant an avant garde piece of furniture into their living room or combine kitschy items with more valuable furnishings, their selection of window treatments should match an eclectic setting.

Horizontal fabric shades are a good choice for this style of decorating. They have the look of window shades, but the individual slats are reminiscent of a venetian blind. The range of fabrics, colors and print designs in horizontal fabric shades work well in a Mix Mash room design. With the ability to managing light by controlling the angle of the slats, these shades also add the functional feature that's important in Mix Mash style.
