Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for April 6th, 2009

Art Deco, which became so popular in the 20’s and 30’s, was considered to be elegant, functional, modern, and glamorous.  It affected architecture, industrial design, graphic arts and interior design. The Chrysler Building is a prime example of art deco architecture. The movement was more a combination of designs, rather than a new one.  It included art nouveau, cubism, modernism, and neoclassical design.

The fad died in the 40’s, but was reborn again in the 80’s and 90’s. Known as Style Moderne in the 20’s, it received its more popular name of Art Deco in the late 60’s. Spawned by a healthy economy at the end of WWI, it represents positive outlook, collective good spirit, and futuristic color and imagination. Fighting to end the austere and stuffy designs of the Victorian and Revivalist eras, it combined luxury, versatility,  and function in a cacaphony of color.

Art deco is eclectic at its best.  It has Aztec and Egyptian elements, making use of pyramid shapes, strong and sharp angles, lighting with geometric glass shades, and furniture of metal or lacquered woods.  Modern neon art and caracaturistic drawings done in the blacks, greens, almonds and purples of classic art deco are framed in metal.
Bedrooms often feature a huge bed on a pedestal, built-in night stands and a dramatic chaise. Drawers are built in to the walls in behind lacquered doors.  Huge walk-in closets with a boudoir chair would double as your dressing room.

Open, uncluttered, and highly colorful spaces are the rule.
