By using some or all of your pieces, you can accomplish an eclectic style that is uniquely your own. It doesn't matter if you prefer modern, country, contemporary or traditional; eclecticism can be applied successfully.
Or put another way

As it applies to the world of design, eclecticism is a blend of furnishing styles from a mixture of sources and time periods. An eclectic room should feature pieces with commonalities to create harmony within the design. This is definitely not a hodgepodge or jumbled assortment of random items, but a planned deliberate design. A shared theme or component should tie everything together.
Or yet another way:

Furniture pieces from a number of styles/periods
Common colour/texture/shape or finish
Colours: Any you want, but it is a good idea to have a neutral back drop
Furniture: Lines, finishes and materials of the pieces in a room are tied together with paint, fabric or a more refined or roughed-up finish. But not by the style of the furniture
Fabrics: multitude of fabrics: patterned, textured or both. But pick a colour scheme for them or it can turn out chaotic instead of cool.
