How to Decorate in the Art Deco Style

The Art Deco period was very popular in the United States and Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, which is in stark contrast to the Art Nouveau style that was minimalist, nature-inspired. Like the Art Nouveau movement, art decor affects all areas of decorative art and is considered very charming, elegant, functional, and modern. It quickly became a popular interior decoration style and made it influence feelable in architecture, fashion, and even car design.

In interior decoration, just like in architecture, the Art Deco style was all about making a big statement. Bold geometric patterns, hard angles, and a clear preference for symmetry in design all symbolized the wave of an industry that was transforming the country.

How to decorate in Art Deco style
If you want to incorporate some elements of Art Deco design into your house, you will be lucky. It is very easy to add abstract art canvas in this unique style or decorate the whole house. Here are some guidelines to help you through the process.
The colors of the Art Deco style are eye-catching with a lot of contrasts. Bright and deep yellow, red, green, blue, and pink mix well with silver, black, and chrome.
If you want something softer, you can try the creams and beiges abstract wall art that is often used in the living room, dining room, and bedroom. These colors are in sharp contrast to the polished wood and lacquered furniture common to the period.
Choose a strong, streamlined shape. Furniture made of exotic wood (such as zebrawood), as well as chrome and mirror parts, are good choices.
Art Deco furniture tends to be larger, so don't be afraid to buy large wall art. Sideboards, wardrobes, and large chairs are typical of this period.
Do not use any beautiful flowers or lattices in the Art Deco room. Fabrics of this style are usually solid colors or geometric designs.
To increase the punching effect, try adding a matte highlight to the solid contrast color block. One keyword to remember is "bold."

Linoleum in abstract designs or black and white paintings are typical as are the lacquered surfaces. Polished parquet flooring is also perfect for flooring.
Remember, the floors of the Art Deco period will be covered with large rugs in geometric patterns, so you can do this at will if you want.
The lamp is usually made of glass and chromium (a new material at the time). The glass is sometimes etched or glazed. White glass and colored Tiffany-style glass are also common.
You can still find the original lamps of this period, but if you are not worried. There are many replicas on the market.
By incorporating these and other Art Deco elements into your decoration, you can achieve the sleek and modernist look of the Art Deco era.
