Whether you've just watched The Great Gatsby and fell in love with the style or you're keen to change up your space for the new decade, you might want to inject some Art Deco into your life.
Art Deco is a popular art and design style with origins in the city of Paris. It started almost a century ago, taking inspiration from the iconic decade of the roaring 20s. The style is a celebration of modern life, emphasising a state of luxury and total sophistication. Art Deco is now widely used throughout fine art, architecture, fashion design and decorative arts. Keep on scrolling to see how you can let it inspire your 21st-century home.
All kinds of shapes and styles are welcome in Art Deco design. Whether it's a triangle, a zigzag pattern or a funky chevron arrangement, this interior style is all about embracing bold shapes and utilising them in all aspects. We're talking wallpaper, floorboards and even the furniture.
Art Deco style doesn't shy away from colour. And there are no rules for the colour palette – unique shades are usually paired together, even ones you wouldn't first think of. All elements of the room are supposed to make a statement, but all in their own way. Popular colour choices include mustard, emerald and navy blue.
A plain square or circle mirror? No thanks. Nailing the Art Deco trend means decorating with unique items. Mirrors are a great way to add a surprising element; you can find ones in all different shapes, sizes and styles.
Art Deco is all about living with luxury and total sophistication. It's common for people to seek out lighting fixtures and pendants that are really over the top. Whether it's large and in charge or adorned with gold and silver embellishments, a glamorous lighting situation can really help bring the space together.
It's rare to see light coloured wood being used in Art Deco interiors. Dark, lacquered surfaces are usually favoured and help to complement the bold, rich tones and metal accessories. Opt for a dark, wooden bedside table or dining table.
As we said, Art Deco embraces luxury. The best way to achieve it? By choosing the right surface. Whether it's wood or marble, a shiny surface gives the space some much-needed depth and shine.
Accessories should be your best friend – go crazy with the home decor! Cushions, frames, throws, photo frames and wall art: use it all. We recommend mixing and matching different colours and finishes, and don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
Another finish commonly used in Art Deco interiors is chrome. It's rich in colour, shiny and looks expensive. What more could you want? You can experiment with chrome accessories, or opt for a statement centrepiece or lighting fixture. Looking for a simple way? A dining table set with chrome legs can also look really gorgeous.
