Because Art Deco interiors were relatively minimalist for the time, colours are used sparingly. Most colour schemes include black, combined with another colour such as green, red or white while accent colours are usually chrome and/or gold. Pale blue or dove grey were also commonly used to provide a softening effect against the harsh black.
The formal living room blends antiques-store finds and high-end fabrics, but the room isn’t too formal for dogs and children. The furnishings look just right with the natural texture of a sisal rug, which also stands up to wear and tear.
Early Georgian style was the tail-end of Queen Anne design, and this gradually became more severe in its lines and architectural detail. The style was copied from Ancient Greece and Rome, however a lot of Chinese design showed through in the interior. Chinese motifs like peonies and chrysanthemums were found in the fabric and Chinese porcelain and motif table lamps were common. colour schemes were pale and subtle cream, dusky rose, sage, pea green, powder blue. Florals were also found, and in more grander houses, gold and murals were the preferred wall coverings. Upholstery and curtains often had matching fabric.
Likewise, the type of finish (matte or glossy) counts too. For something that’s a little muted and cosy, go for matte finishes. If you’re looking for something easier to clean, a glossy finish takes less work to wipe down (and help to reflect light!)
