Earlier this fall we talked about how the movie “The Great Gatsby” influenced summer interior fashion. That influence has spilled over into 2013 fall and winter interior decor. Glamour…
The world of Art Deco represents a “graciousness of form”, typically a design of decor which was utilized in building design as well as home decor, jewelry, and clothing.
The end of the Elizabethan period ushered in the Art deco era, though it truly did not take off until the late 20’s and early thirties as world travel became more accessible and popular. By the 1930’s the industrial mass production of interior goods meant that the burgeoning middle class could now live in luxury, similar to the styles of the rich and famous who were able to travel on the Titanic, safari in deep African jungles, visit The Empire State Building or even decorate their homes as seen in movie pictures.
That is the indulgent call of the 2013 winter season. Homeowners and executives seek out cozier, warmer, design elements. This winter, strong and clean patterns are the call of those in the know. Geometric and animal prints dominate surfaces all strongly influenced by the art deco style of the early 20th century. 2013 Winter design trends will display clean lines with contrasting layers of texture in monochromatic color schemes resulting in bold, warm wool carpets in brilliant geometric or animal patterns.
