Whether you’re decorating one room or the whole house, you need to choose a style that not only fits your house but also your personality. Choosing a style to decorate your walls with wall art motivates you to think about your likes and dislikes as well as discover all of the elements you need to consider in order to make your dream home a reality. You want what you want. So why should you be restricted in the way you express yourself? This line of thinking is making a remarkable comeback in artisticstyles like Arts and Crafts.
Art deco was inspired by a change in ethics during the 20th century, and the style reflects it. Rather than highlighting the beauty of ornamentation, this style highlights the functional aspects of design. In this design style, fine craftsmanship instead of a mass-produced look is hallmark, and indigenous woods and metals are used for hardware. If you’re interested in decorating your home in an Arts and Crafts style, you might like these tips:
We are about to time travel, so close your eyes. Take time to learn about names such as William Morris, Gustav Stickley, Dick Van Erp, and CFA Voysey. When the arts and crafts movement was at its height, they were experts in their field. The works of these authors will serve as inspiration to inspire truly creative ideas for decorating furniture, wall decorations, textile ideas, and lighting.
You should make sure that you plan the color palette that you will be using. It is best to use colors that are natural and subdued from the middle ages to create an earthy and warm atmosphere. Against an ivory or cream background, dusty rose, sapphire blue, mossy green, deep red and burnished brown colors add interest.
If you want to add an Oriental or Gothic touch to your rooms, choose some wallpaper with these motifs. The presence of large scale interior designs and repeating wallpaper patterns is a tell-tale sign of Arts and Crafts decoration. You can separate the lower half of the wall using a wooden chair rail with groove boards and wainscoting.
Hardwood floors in long boards or squares are both good choices. To dye or polish your hardwood floors, use a color that is darker than the furniture. Stone is a great choice for an entryway. Bathrooms look best with muted colours and simple patterns. There isn’t a design more suitable for high-traffic kitchens than linoleum with geometric patterns.
It may seem as though this step is the most difficult because you will need to go shopping at many different stores to find furniture which matches the look you want. It is much more probable that a bookcase or cabinet will be considered a traditional built-in, since that style was in vogue then. A chair with well-spaced arms should have a wide back. You can also find them in rectangular shapes with leather straps or copper and upside down hearts. In terms of your bedroom, a four poster bed is the only option.
Lighting now needs to be added. A tiffany style lamp made from stained glass, which gives off a soft glow against its hammered copper patina base, is the perfect lighting accessory. Decorate your house with sconces, table lamps, and other lighting fixtures throughout.
We’re getting close to the finish line. Add fruit baskets, stoneware, pottery, jugs, and goblets to the living room. Pewter, copper, iron, bronze, and silver are almost exclusively used in Arts and Crafts designs. Hanging pictures of pastoral scenes, or pictures depicting rural countryside, will enhance their appeal. You don’t even need to hang pictures. You can use high-quality photo books full of your favorite pictures to enhance shelving and table space. Photo books make for excellent conversation pieces and can be easily picked up and looked through. They’re completely personal and allow for you to curate the photo book in exactly the way you want.
