Bringing the Divine Art Nouveau Design Into Your Home
Although there is controversy on where the term “Art Nouveau” originated, everyone generally agrees that it’s literal meaning of “New Art” was seeded in the desire to reflect the present times instead of complying with past traditions. This included updating their decorating style with (the then) current day arts and crafts, furnishings and color schemes – in attempt to be more modernized. Art Nouveau interior design reflects the same principles: less clutter and cleaner lines. It also gathered inspiration from it’s current surroundings and latest trends; both local and abroad. You can easily bring this creative and contemporary style of decorating into your home by following a few basic guidelines; although those guidelines can be adjusted to fit your own personal style and tastes. Colors seem to be a personal choice as long as it’s kept fairly light and intriguing; sage greens, browns, mustards, lilacs.
