What is Art Decor?
Art Decor reached its height in the 1920’s when the economy was booming and home owners were looking to create a more luxurious feel to their interiors. This trend was actually the first design movement that became popular all over the world! The trend is most popular for creating a perfect connection between classic and modern interiors with its timeless yet contemporary feel.
This trend is all about bold pops of colour, brassy tones and dramatic contrasts, but don’t worry, we have got five top tips below to help you incorporate this gorgeous trend into your homes.
1. Incorporate Gold
Adding gold to your interior doesn’t have to be as daunting as you may first think. If you aren’t sure how to include this essential element of the trend into your interior, first start by including a statement piece of artwork or furniture. A great example is a gold rimmed drinks trolley like the one pictured below! This statement piece is great for building on your interior, and really helps to embody the era! Our wide range of golden hues are going to be perfect for this trend.
