Art Deco in a New Decade

We’re back in the roaring 20s. The glamour and detail of the era has entered a new generation of style. Art Deco combines the best of classic materials, like stone, marble and gold, with the excitement of modern shapes and designs. The look offers tradition with a twist and touch of luxury. Discover what’s new with age-old inspiration.

Geometric Shapes

Art Deco is French-inspired and expertly balances whimsical shape and structure with its symmetrical designs. Elegant curves work in contrast with clean edges. Repeating these shapes in a bold pattern makes speakeasy style even easier. Style tip! You may think small spaces can’t handle pattern, but bold patterns actually add depth to a room.

Metallic Shine

It wouldn’t be Deco without a little decoration. Metallic accents are the jewelry of a space. It doesn’t take much to polish a look, so incorporating touches of gold and silver add glamour to backsplashes. Style tip! For even more budget-friendly style, use metallic liners between tiles to create a custom look or consider golden grout.

Mirror & Mother of Pearl Accents

Mirrors don’t just belong above your vanity. Reflective accents in the right place will highlight unique details of the home and make rooms appear larger. Style tip! Choose a more antique finish for a subtle approach. Also, explore mother of pearl to add iridescence without the reflection of mirror.
