If you too belong to my camp of balance, but aren't sure how to exactly mix crisp & eclectic, I hope you find this post helpful. Below is just one, budget-friendly example of creating a balanced feel.

A bonus with the chairs, aside from price, is that they're stackable! Grab a couple to break out when you need additional seating. Incorporating pieces with thick textures in deeper hues will lend warmth to the crisp items below creating maximum contrast for a unique & warm feel to your space. Hollah.
