Fashion trends and designs often come back into style, although it’s fair to say some styles should never make a comeback. The past few years have seen the resurgence of several trends, for instance the wide leg pant of the seventies or the mod color blocking of the sixties.
I’m going out on a limb and predicting that this year, the glamorous style of the 1920s Art Deco will make a comeback. One major reason is the remake of the iconic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, The Great Gatsby. Let’s be honest, who can resist Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan and the elaborate lifestyle of Mr. Gatsby? We’ve already seen a few hints of this in fashion with sequin, scallop, and metallic details.
So how can you introduce Art Deco into your decor? The most successful interiors are a blend of styles that relate to the personality of the owner. By adding small hints of the Art Deco style, you can adopt the trend without having to redecorate your entire space. Start with simple accents; add Art Deco graphic prints into your accessories, highlight pieces with metallics or mirrors, or hang a classic Art Deco piece of art. I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite pieces to bring the Art Deco into your space, check them out below!
