How to Design Your Home with Art Deco Designs

  • The first thing that you focus on is colors in art deco home designing. Choose bold and striking colors with a lot of contrast. Pick green, orange, red blue, yellow and pink. Trimming the designs with silver or black makes the colors look bolder. To soften the hues try beige and cream in living room, bedroom, and dining room. Contrasts that take place with cream and lacquered polished furniture look deeply art deco.
  • Furniture manufactured of exotic wood and mirrored pieces are the best options. Art deco furniture is usually large but it is with streamlined shapes.
  • Choose fabric for sheets and covers that is geometrically designed or are of solid colors. No need of going for floral or plaid fabric. Add cushions with solid colors in contrast. These can highlight your interior. Do whatever falls in the category of “bold.”
  • Abstract floor designs in Linoleum do the best. You can go for black and white tiles also if you do not mind going very typical.
  • Rugs with large geometrical designs in old colors are also a good choice for floor. Go for these as an alternative to tiles.
