If you’re in the early stages of redesigning a specific room, or even the entire house, House Tipster says that choosing an interior design style to guide your inspiration will help you to create a cohesive theme.
The bold geometry and decadent details of the Art Deco style is perfect to give your home a signature aesthetic focused around eye-catching luxury.
Art Deco first appeared in France and flourished throughout the antebellum period between World War I and II. The introduction of innovative industry and technology in the Roaring 20s paved the way for a new bold and flashy style.
Breaking away from the emphasized curves, plant inspired motifs, and organic forms of the Art Nouveau period; Art Deco incorporates gallant geometric shapes, symmetry, and lavish ornamentation to evoke Hollywood glamor. Some of the most iconic Art Deco installations are the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Center in New York City. Many contemporary hotels and urban lofts feature this style as well.
So, how exactly can you incorporate Art Deco into your interior design?
First add strong shapes, such as spheres, rectangles, zigzags, and chevrons. Keeping a consistent theme of shapes through each room will establish the symmetrical tendencies of Art Deco designers.
Signature materials to incorporate include, aluminum, stainless steel, chrome, stained glass, and gold. Exotic items like zebra skin, Ancient Egypt-influenced art and furniture, and Pop Art will give your room the right motifs.
Since Art Deco is minimalist in nature, design with a neutral color pallet. Include shades of black, brown, gray, and white accented with bold colors like red, green, and gold.
When choosing furniture, focus on industrial materials and highly lacquered wood pieces. Velour material is commonly used to make rigid structures appear more comfortable and inviting.
Floor lamps, table lamps, and ceiling lights constructed from striking shapes and materials will be captivating focal points for your design. Adding similar mirrors, paintings, or retro antiques will help to complete your Art Deco masterpiece.
Designing with Art Deco is a fantastic way to give your space an exuberant design to match your stylish personality. For more videos about other interior design styles, follow the links below. Thanks for watching.
