Art Nouveau Decorating Style
Art Nouveau interior decor style has evolved in the late XIX century as a response for the strict Victorian interior design. It gained most popularity in Paris and London, the fashion’s main cities. The design was rather flamboyant and frivolous, and it soon became the retreat of the elite. As suggested by the name, this new Art style features elongated lines, curves and flowery designs that gained its popularity in the heart of the art circles.
The style takes its inspiration from the objects that are abundant in nature, dragonflies, butterflies, flowers, etc. Curvilinear lines and pastel colors all add elegance and style to the interior decor. Hardwood is a common sight in this style. The most famous element of the art Nouveau interior decor is the Tiffany Lamps, which have originated around the same time period. They too feature the amazing flower and nature patterns. Tiffany lamps still exist in the hands of Louis Comfort Tiffany heirs.
What distinguishes this style from any other is the abundance of curves and floral patterns. The most renowned designer is Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who had been known for extreme art nouveau designs with high backed chairs in a glossy black lacquer. However, more down to earth variations are more common. So if you want to decorate your interior décor with Art Nouveau style follow your heart and take inspiration from Nature.
