Interior Design 101: Art Deco

Maybe you’ve just bought your dream home and want to start throwing around some new ideas. Or perhaps you’re down-scaling and want to create a desirable living space.

We’re going to give you your new style bible and show you exactly how to redesign your space, for whatever reason you may have. This week, we’ll be looking at the ‘Art Deco’ style.

Art Deco interiors are making a big comeback. Vivid geometrics, luxe materials and vibrant colour celebrate the bold side of opulent Art Deco design

The term ‘art deco’ comes from the French ‘Arts Décoratifs,” and was hugely popular during the 1920s and 1930s

This interior style oozes all things glamorous. Think rich colors, metallics, and occasional animal prints. But aside from the ‘extra’ that it’s associated with, it’s also commonly known for its bold, geometric shapes with sharp edges.

Here are some art deco pieces that we really love.
