Even as we draw close to the end of the first two decades of the 21st century, mid-century modern style continues to be one of the most popular ways to decorate a room. Developed, as the name implies, toward the middle decades of the 1900s, the style was a minimalist turn away from the ostentation that characterized the Art Deco period that preceded it. Pioneered by such luminaries as Ray and Charles Eames, mid-century modern is more than a design style as it also encompasses a number of unique furniture styles that are associated with the style, including the iconic Eames Lounge.

In this lovely dining room the table and chairs, and even the console in the far corner all belong to the mid-century period. Streamlined pieces in warm wood tones and an understated aesthetic characterize this style, which shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

If there's one trend that can completely transform a space, it's none other than one of the decade's most iconic and recognizable interior design styles. Having reached the height of its popularity in the 1920s, '30s, and '40s, Art Deco boasts an inherent glamour and traditional luxury. Short for the French term, Arts Décoratifs, the style is characterized by geometric patterns, bold color, symmetrical designs, metallic finishes, decadent detailing, and tons of visual drama. If it looks like a scene out of The Great Gatsby, chances are it's traditional Art Deco style.

Art Deco, also known as style moderne, was the major design style of the 1920s and 1930s. It's characterized by simple shapes, plenty of glamour and geometric decorations, and the use of metallics and jewel tones like jade, silver, and chrome.

While it's not a look for the most modest dweller, the eclectic glamour is sure to elevate even the simplest of spaces. Ahead, the inspiration you need to bring the interior exuberance of the Roaring '20s to your 21st-century space. Shop the Art Deco fixtures, wall coverings, and furniture that work wonderfully in both light and heavy doses—all of which exude levels of luxury even F. Scott Fitzgerald would envy.

Here's everything you need to know to get Art Deco design at home.

If you're lucky enough to live in a home with original tiling in pristine condition, do yourself a favor and keep it. Instead of renovating for something a bit more modern, play up its uniqueness by incorporating even more patterns. We also love how this predominantly pink bathroom strikes a balance via black additions on the gallery frame and curtains.

Nothing screams opulence more than brass elements. We're obsessed with the metallic additions on the chairs, light fixtures, and cabinet hardware in this kitchen and breakfast nook. The brass looks even more expensive with the black and white color palette throughout.

There's one item that transcends time, adds a bit of sparkle, and is just as beautiful as it is functional. We're of course talking about the mirror. Strategically placing a geometric mirror, like this one positioned in a corner creating the illusion of a full chandelier, is all you need to make a simple space shine.

Art Deco decor is all about strong lines and bold shapes. The headboard in this bedroom is the epitome of 1920s interior design and is only rivaled by this incredible pendant light hanging overhead.

The rounded-top shape is a major element in Art Deco, so be sure to play up those arches. This bathroom incorporated the arch design in multiple places from the mirror to the window above the door and the marble backsplash. Even the sink boasts rounded edges to give this powder room a cohesive feel.

Art Deco isn't just about arches, it's about all geometric shapes. This headboard is straight out of The Great Gatsby with bold cutouts in various shapes.

By now, you know shapes play a major role in Art Deco decor. However, it's just as important to consider composition when decorating rooms. From the headboard shape to the nightstand decor, this bedroom screams Art Deco with perfect symmetry, which is a major element in Art Deco design.

When decorating a room, don't forget to look down. We love this marble runner in this hallway—the pattern feels right out of the '20s, while the stone feels downright luxurious. Admittedly, this is an expensive renovation, but the look can easily be recreated on the cheap with a runner rug.

Original 1920s stained glass is hard to come by—but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the look in even the most modern of spaces. This mural can be made possible with some artful taping and quite a bit of patience, but in the end, you'll feel like you stepped out of the roaring '20s.

You'd be surprised what the addition of artful molding around plain door frames could do for the final look of your space. Paint them in a contrasting color and you have yourself an Art Deco palace.

One brass pendant light is stunning, but six is so much better, especially when complemented by granite floors and concrete walls. When it comes to recreating Art Deco decor, more is always more.

When it comes to the bathroom (or a kitchen), choosing a tile will make all the difference between a timeless result and something on the trendier side. While a subway tile might feel modern, an octagon or diamond-shaped tile will feel more classic and Art Deco inspired.

Consider yourself lucky if your home or apartment comes with vaulted ceilings and arched doorways. But for the rest of us that are tasked with the challenge to make a modern layout feel charming, a DIY paint job like this scalloped color blocking just might be the update your space needs.

If you're open to renovating your space, there's no limit to where a few 20s-inspired built-ins can take your redesign. Dramatic crown molding and built-in shelving will transport your home to any era.

From the gilded mirror above the fireplace to the crystal chandelier hanging overhead, this living room screams glamour. For special pieces like these, don't be afraid to shop at local antique shops and flea markets.

It's no secret that common spaces like the living room and kitchen take priority in your home decor journey, but don't overlook more functional spaces, no matter how little foot traffic they receive. Designing a home that feels like yours through and through includes walk-in closets.

Design elements like molding and scalloped patterns feel unapologetically Art Deco, but that doesn't mean you can't incorporate more contemporary pieces. Doing so will create a contrast that feels complementary and totally cohesive.

If you prefer to keep things modern, you can still work in some '20s-inspired pieces for a final look that pops. This horizontally tufted headboard in a moss green feels modern with a hint of Art-Deco flair.

Although this kitchen incorporates elements from traditional farmhouse decor to Art Deco designs, all the different styles work perfectly in this single space. To create a cohesive space, stick to a clear color palette and streamlined metallic finishes.

Nothing looks more luxurious than sticking to a single color and running with it. This navy wallpaper, paired with the navy chair and lamp, feels so expensive. The addition of an opulence sconce and herringbone floors helps too.

Online interior design versus working with a traditional interior designer—what’s really the difference? While there’s definitely some overlap with the two experiences, there are also a few key differences—one of the main ones being collaborating online versus. meeting in-person. 

Our fully online platform makes working with your personal designer more convenient and accessible. No more comparing schedules and coordinating in-person consultations.

But the differences don’t stop there. Our transparent pricing structure is set up so you know exactly what you’ll pay up-front—and there are never any surprise fees. We can guarantee this because we charge a flat rate per room, not an hourly fee like most traditional interior designers. (Bonus: this also makes online interior design much more affordable.)

With Modsy, you have unlimited access to our design messaging feature—so you can message your designer at any time, right from your designs.

But what makes Modsy different from other online interior design services out there? It’s all in the unique combination of working one-on-one with an expert designer and the magic of 3D visualization. Unlike some companies that only offer 3D designs of your final room concept, all of your designs, from the very start, are delivered in life-like 3D. That means you can actually see what your room will look like every step of the way. We also offer unlimited revisions, so you’ll be sure to walk away with a design you love. And if you’re still on the fence, we offer a money-back guarantee so you can have confidence in the process from the very start.

Rather than art, a high-impact wallpaper can give a subdued room some wow factor. The 19th-century wallcovering from this luxe Milan apartment was purchased at auction in France and adapted to the room. “We created the missing parts—the plinth and the ceiling frame—to depict an Italian capriccio, a fantastical and bucolic landscape with architectural features,” says Laura Sartori Rimini of Studio Peregalli.

Balance New and Old

When renovating a building that already has plenty of character, like this 1920s Spanish Colonial home in Los Angeles, it’s all about striking the balance between what you add and what you leave. “We wanted to make it feel more holistic while still honoring its heritage,” designer Steven Johanknecht says of the decision to keep the original hand-carved ceiling beams and wrought-iron chandeliers while removing mismatched materials from previous renovations.

To soften the modern edge of stainless steel, decorator Alisa Bloom put a traditional spin on the kitchen cabinetry of her 1920s Chicago penthouse with brass inlays.

Installing Shiplap? Go Horizontal (Usually)

If Chip and Joanna Gaines have convinced you that your abode needs shiplap, you’re usually best off installing the boards horizontally rather than vertically. “It can really expand a space, making it feel larger than vertical boards can,” says Jason Arnold. “Horizontal boards also feel more contemporary.” Vertical boards, however, can be ideal for rooms with high ceilings.

Don’t Sacrifice Comfort

Sure, your eyes may want the most modern, chic couch in the showroom. But your back may not. “In my experience, it’s really better to test out seating and take the time to look at the dimensions,” says Sharon Blaustein. If you’re tall, for instance, you might want to opt for a depth of between 40 to 42 inches for a sofa (rather than the standard depth of 36 inches).

You have finally put together your beloved home, complete with all precious pieces that brighten your day! All that’s left is a large wall staring blankly at you. A real Catch-22 for the homeowner. But we’ve got you covered! An empty wall can be the start of something new.

A new leaf to turn over. Designing an art wall is much more than turning it into a photo gallery. There are tons of tactics and wall decor ideas to make the wall totally you. We list below 20 foolproof ways to turn that vacuum into the X-factor of your home!

Any room can benefit from the gravitational pull of large artwork. It gives a crisp, balanced focal point to the room without detracting from the rest of the room.

The larger your piece, the more graphic aplomb and conversation it will incorporate into the room.

Anything from an oversized photograph or painting hung at eye level will give maximum impact.

Maybe you can even try minimal, DIY abstract artwork by yourself. Abstract minimalism is reasonably easy to master with simple shapes and color palettes.

Can’t make up your mind about a single piece of art; maybe you prefer a curated gallery mix? Make your wall look like an art gallery display.

Asymmetrical display design is enriched if the frames are equal in size, same color, and have the same backing, placed along an equidistant grid.

However, go rogue, and blend in a motley crew of framed photographs, paintings, and illustrations in contrasting scales for an eclectic fusion.

Dabble in print media, and take calligraphy home! The arty calligraphy ranges from Islamic metal inlays on marble and Chinese font inspired by nature to Japanese brush fonts, all exemplar wall décor options.

A large piece of artwork alone can sometimes look flat.

Starting with something tall like a large painting leaned on the wall to amplify the room’s height, introduce a chair off the side.

Add pendant light over a stack of books or a vase next to it to give the scene some depth. If you lack space, flip the chair for a stool or ottoman for a similar effect.

Clever pockets of greenery are not just attractive but add fresh scents too!

With the world welcoming nature home, a green wall is definitely a “blooming” choice for a blank wall.
