Welcome to the Art Decor era, an interior theme that we are introducing back into our beloved homes. Whether that is through token pieces to add a touch of interest or for those homes that fully embrace the period to create a unique atmosphere.
The style can be introduced in several ways to create a nod to the era. Whilst accessorising with furniture or lighting can draw many rooms into the decade, the surfaces that they were laid upon were just as important to create a holistic scheme.
The shapes within the period were one of the most distinct qualities. Flattened and stylised geometric structures like fans and flowers created beauty, whilst abstract shapes such as chevrons and sunbursts generated the much-loved symmetry that often ran through the style. And let us not forget the jagged lines that were prominent through the structure of some of the most icon buildings in the world – Rockefeller, Empire State and Chrysler.
The second most synonymous quality of the decade was the colour that was adopted. High in contrast, the tones were bold, moody and deep – intense reds, rich greens, vibrant blues and bright yellows all provided the much-needed statement an interior craved during the time. Such saturated tones were often balanced by softer nudes.
To draw the theme together, the material used created a thought-provoking contrast. Mirrors, polished wood, brass, chrome and stained glass bought the movement together as they adorned walls and floors.
