We may have fawned over the extravagant homes of The Great Gatsby, but that doesn't mean we would be ready to adopt the full glitz and glam of art deco style in our own homes. The roaring '20s were a period of excess, something that's definitely reflected in the décor style—which incorporates metallic tones, geometric patterns, and reflective surfaces. While our modern aesthetic is more subdued, the architecture style popularized in the 1920s is rich with iconic pieces and materials that can actually blend quite well in our more modern homes.
Translation: The art déco style always looks expensive.
If you're not prepared to go full Great Gatsby in your space, there is one item in particular that we're fond of for its versatility and more minimalistic appeal: the art deco mirror. Often characterized by beveled edges and geometric shapes, it reflects light more than a regular mirror and makes any space look like a million bucks.
