If you love the re-emergence of Art Deco interiors – you are not alone! Art Deco style is the visual and influential arts & design movement which first emerged in France after World War I. Art Deco is inspired by a touch of French, Egyptian and Mediterranean culture with geometric patterns and vibrant colours.
You will be surprised how easy it is to bring this retro look from the 1930s – 1940s style into your home.
Start with a bold design
The Art Deco movement had a strong tie to bold geometric shapes and designs. To bring this into your home, start off with bold wallpaper with strong geometric shapes and patterns, which will make the room come alive instantly.
Accessories are key
If you want to make small but noticeable tweaks, why not invest in some art deco handles to jazz up existing furniture? Art deco handles are intricately designed with distinctive designs, often finished in polished brass, antique brass or chrome.
Choose accessories and furniture with soft lines and interesting textures. Try rounded upholstered chairs and sofas that are both beautiful and comfortable. Curved designs in plush velvet are perfect for art deco inspired spaces.
Artwork and sculptures
The arts and entertainment world showcased their talents during the 30s and 40s and home décor mimicked the trend. The most popular art deco artwork and sculptures include boil oil paintings, sculptural table lamps, ornate bedroom furniture and finely detailed furniture. Incorporate these elements into your room for instant art deco appeal.
The term “bold” is an understatement for many of the high-contrast colour palettes iconic of the art deco era. By using the bold colour scheme, you can bring the art revival vibe in your home instantly. Incorporate monochromatic black, white combinations or pops of red and deep browns, as these were the most colours during this era. To bring the look to your home, choose ceramic or porcelain tiles with a high gloss in contrasting colours. Beautiful mirrors and mirror finished accessories will complete the look.
