Art Deco Inspiration
I have a slight obsession with Art Deco style – a swanky, elegant aesthetic that began in Paris at the 1925 L’Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs (translation: The International Exposition for Decorative Arts – but it sounds so romantic in French, no?). The Art Deco style is distinct, creating intricate, geometrical patterns while mixing dark/light tones to create high drama and contrast. It’s bold. Modern. Fearless! Magnifique!
Metallic accents give Art Deco a lusciously modern, luxurious feeling.
Geometric shapes and contrasting tones (LOVE the dark woods paired with light textiles!) are unmistakably Art Deco.
Ok, now I’m terribly inspired by all the Deco-ness and ready to tackle my refinishing project. Is anyone else working on a home decor project today?
