Art Deco Inspiration With a Contemporary Flap

Based on streamlined geometric forms and metallic color, the art deco style has flourished in Europe in the early years of the 20th century, following a weaker art nouveau influence.

Art deco was led by fashion and the use of motifs depicting nature. It was one of the most exciting decorative styles of the century, and is one that still influences contemporary geometric designs these days. Without further ado, today we’re going to inspire you with a few art deco interiors.

Art Deco Living Rooms

A stylish, modern way of decorating with art deco in mind is to include just a few touches and not overcrowd the room with geometric elements and the flapper style of the 20s. It’s all about creating discrete look with rich colors or elegant materials with zigzags and sharply angled and cubist forms.

Art Deco Dining Areas

A dining room with an art deco feel is just as appealing as our artistic and glamorous living rooms above. It’s all about creating a visual effect where high-gloss metals, black lacquer, exotic woods, leather and mirrors are key focal points. And remember, black and white is not all about retro, it can also be warm and cozy, so you should really consider it for your home if you want to catch the glamor of the period, the electricity and the sporadic nature of modern jazz.

At first I wasn’t sure that art deco would go well in the kitchen. Our research proved me wrong. There’s a certain appeal to a kitchen with geometric patterns or high gloss cabinets standing on fancy legs, or dark colored kitchens with clean sharp angles , and white and black geometric flooring. The exuberance of stainless steel and highly reflective surfaces certainly won me over.

An art deco bedroom is all about being cozy and warm. Nothing spells inviting as good as a bedroom with a slick and gleaming effect. Sprinkle glass and mirrored pieces throughout your bedroom, go for a highly textured leather-like comfy chair, ix vinyl, add silk and satin for an exquisite tone and think of gold and silver — you just got  the most elegant art deco bedroom to spend the night in style.

Art Deco Bathrooms

Modern art deco bathroom with a fashion flair

by Robert Granoff

For me, an art deco bathroom is all about mixing fashion elements with the functionality of your room. It makes me think of red carpets, dressing tables and photos hung on the walls. It makes me think of sophistication, lustrous lacquer and vintage at the same time. Am I wrong about it? I guess not, these are truly inspiring bathrooms with an art deco feel.
