If you’ve been scrolling through your TikTok feed, ooh-ing and ahh-ing over charmingly layered decor styles, you’re not alone.
Millions of views don’t lie—we spotted a new home aesthetic that’s taking over both rooms and social feeds: traditional eclecticism.
To learn more about this viral decor style, we spoke with Heather Goerzen, design director and lead interior designer at Havenly. She claims traditional eclecticism as one of her favorite new design aesthetics, and it’s easy to see why.
Here’s betting it’ll be your new favorite, too.

Think of traditional eclecticism as the Nancy Myers aesthetic. Imagine living on the set of «Father of the Bride,» «The Parent Trap,» or «The Holiday.» If these are homes out of your dreams, then it's time to give this layered, cozy aesthetic a try this winter.
Traditional eclecticism starts with a base of the best elements of traditional design: classic silhouettes, enduring color palettes, storied elements, timeless styling, and a hint of vintage.

A giant invasive plant known as “Millennium Madness” sprouted worldwide last year. It was particularly bad in the United States and positively egregious in the New York metropolitan area. And, as if Millennium Madness was not bad enough all by itself, there were rumors that it was infested on a grand scale with the dreaded Y2K Bug. While professionals in a host of countries spent months trying to think of ways to eradicate the Y2K Bug, ordinary people were rumored to be aiding the rapid growth and spread of Millennium Madness by watering local specimens with vast quantities of bottled water that they had stored in their basements.
Last September my husband and I fulfilled a long-held dream of visiting Australia, when we decided to take a road trip from Brisbane to Sydney. When you look at the map, our trip marks only a tiny slice of this massive country, but we knew we wanted to take it slowly and really soak up the countryside and enjoy the places we did have time to see.
While flowers are so often fleeting, foliage will keep a garden display going for many months. And this is especially true of plants with variegated foliage, splashed yellow, cream or white. It can induce one of those ‘Marmite moments’ – you either love it or hate it – but the choice is so wide that there is surely a variegated plant to suit all tastes and every location.
