Art deco may have began in the 1920s, but it’s still one of the most recognizable and popular styles today. What’s wonderful about art deco is that you can pair some of the same pieces from the same art deco period together without overdoing it or you can mix art deco pieces from different styles and still have a cohesive look. What I think they did in this cozy bedroom is blend different art deco pieces together with other styles flawlessly. First, the owner has chosen beautiful wood inlay night stand, to flake a more modern canopy bed. Wood inlay is very indicative of the art deco period. Across the room sits a mirror on your side table from Z Gallery, which is a style very distinctive of the art deco period. Here, they paired it with a mirror that has more rococo. Beyond furniture, some other ways to bring art deco into your decor, through the use of accessories like these vases from Home Goods, always a treasure trove, fabulous finds. Elements like these ripples and sweeping curves are very distinctive of the period and as well as texture. Texture is use throughout this room from this sheep skin rug to this rich faux fur Z Gallery throw. Another really special art deco element in this room and a real show stopper is this cut velvet rocking chair. Some details that stand out in safe art deco include the quilted detail on the chair back and seat as well as the arched chrome legs. This piece was actually purchased at a vintage consignment store, a great resource for affordable art deco pieces. Other art deco interior design ideas include using materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, locker and even skins like shark skin or zebra skin.
