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 Art Deco style was developed following World War I, to offer people a new style for a new era. The excitement and optimism of post-war Europe and America formed the basis for this glamorous and elegant style of design. Art Deco furniture is streamlined in design. It was modern and sleek for the time while still remaining comfortable. Many designs of furniture used industrial materials such as bent chrome base that gives the piece a rocking effect. Wood pieces are highly lacquered in black, with woods used including exotic Brazilian rosewood, ebony, birds-eye maple, and light maple veneers. Upholstery is typically of velour, making the rigid structural form more comfortable.
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!)
Much like art galleries, white walls make the perfect canvas for featuring various works of art. Add a little fun, creative flair to your otherwise minimal (and boring) all-white space with large, hanging artworks that work as a feature piece in a room.
