Art Deco (c. 1908 – 1935)
The art deco style of interior design is as much to do with the furniture as the building and structure of the room itself. The style involves sleek angles and lines, symmetry and bold shiny colours. Metal, mirrors and glossy wood, cubist images of buildings and vehicles, along with rugs and furs.
Patterned tiles are a very prominent feature in this style. They can be and are used in any room, around the sink, as a fireplace, floor, ceiling and tabletop, anywhere. The tiles are covered in bright colours and geometric shapes. Also featured in this style is a bit of glitz. Blue is a colour often used.
There are many different styles of interior design. But what do these terms really mean?
We will be posting, every so often, explanations of design styles. And here’s the first one!

There are two classes of the scandinavian style, Modern (1930-) and Country (17th century). Country is natural, nothing harsh with a lot of whites and wooden details. Add IKEA and you’ve got Modern. Obviously it’s not just that, it’s a natural and modern infusion.
We can imagine our wallpapers or Murals fitting in well with this style!
