The Art Deco

Art Deco is a style of drawing, that relies on bold designs, clear lines, vibrant colors and patterns. Therefore, an Art Deco home is characterized by intense rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and decadent details.

Key Elements

Moulding

The moulding for an Art Deco style is typically white. This enhances the pops of color that are throughout the rest of the design. It also enhances the geometric shapes by adding straight lines and curves.

Doors

Doorways are sometimes surrounded with elaborate pilasters and pediments, and the door is normally surrounded by embellishments. Although doors may seem simpler than the bolder designs in the room, the door can add subtle geometry to any doorway.

Wainscoting

Although wainscoting is also a type of moulding, it deserves to be highlighted. Many Art Deco homes accentuate rooms with it to add more geometric patterns and enhance the design elements in the home. Wainscoting also encourages the symmetry within a room.
