Pay homage to the era of glitz and glam by decorating your bedroom in an Art Deco, 1920s-themed style. Whether you’d like to add touches of the trend or want to create your own Gatsby getaway, here are a few styling ideas.
Curves and edges
Modernise your Art Deco-inspired bedroom by paring back the glamour and instead focusing on curved furniture and edges. Scalloped designs are synonymous with Art Deco spaces and are instantly recognisable. Opt for a bed with a scalloped velvet bedframe, or perhaps for a subtle touch, a mirror with a similar design will create the same effect.
On the fringe
As we all know from the iconic flapper girls, fringe is definitely a key element of 1920s styling. Incorporate this into your bedroom through the fabrics that you choose. Think outside the box and opt for a statement fringe light like this gorgeous design from Audenza. Alternatively, you could get crafty and upcycle a piece of furniture or a mirror by adding lengths of fringe, for a vintage twist.
Mix in pattern

I had some fabric that I took off our old headboard (see last pic) and sent it over to my pal Karen @cushions.co.uk who has made me the most fabulous cushions. I worked out that if you spend 5 minutes a day (morning and night) taking cushions off and on the bed and faffing around it works out at 30 hours per year it’s almost like a week at work! I’ve kept the ceiling in on this photo to show you as I’m still debating either a pink and white or a green and white stripy wallpapered ceiling in here. Nick thinks it will be too much but I think it would be fabulous especially with a huge big over the top light fitting to replace the spotlights. I have never really got spotlights at all and I would certainly never have them in in the bedroom ? what do you reckon? Stripey ceiling or not?!

Be inspired by Siobhan from @interiorcurve and decorate your 1920s-inspired bedroom with bundles of pattern. Siobhan has chosen a jungle print wallpaper, which she has matched with her bedside lamps and cushions for a cohesive look. Remember it’s okay to mix in more contemporary patterns with vintage styles, to get the perfect combination of interior looks that express your personal style.
Velvet and brass

Pay attention to your choice of soft furnishings and accessories. Popular choices for an Art Deco-inspired space include heavy velvet drapes, glamorous trinkets and brass accents. Introduce plants to your 1920s bedroom for a contemporary take on the trend and house in statement gold pots.
Powder room décor

If bright and bold isn’t your thing, opt for a ‘powder room’ aesthetic, which adopts a soft pastel colour palette and delicate styling decisions. Consider adding decorative touches such as wall panelling and coving to add interest and a vintage touch to your bedroom.
