Be bold with colourMany Art Deco interiors are characterised by a striking monochrome colour scheme, but the style is also synonymous with bold shades. Bring in vivid tones of peacock blue, emerald green, reds and yellows. Here, the blue sofa is lifted by gold cushions and complemented by a vase of red flowers. The colours are strong, but they tone together to create a look that’s elegant and sumptuous, rather than overpowering.

Tone with tealTeal is a bold choice of colour to wake up tranquil duck egg blue walls. Here, the stunning velvet sofa is in the same colour spectrum as the blue-green walls, but the deep shade looks dramatic against the pale-toned backdrop. Reflective materials, including the velvety rug and crystal chandelier and sconce, keep the look light.

Major on neutralsEarly Art Deco was all about rich, strong colours. As it evolved, softer hues joined the mix – and this is good to remember, as those trademark clashing bolds take a lot of skill to pull off. Combine them with other Deco classics – say walnut, steel, ebony or zebra print – and a soft, homely space you are unlikely to create. Take Deco detailing, however, such as the geometric pattern of the curtains here, or the elegant glass lighting, and dial it down with a muted backdrop of eau de nil and biscuit, and you’ll achieve a more relaxing mood. Dot in rich colours for depth, but keep them complementary, and be sure to include soft and tactile surfaces, too.Take a look at this Art Deco update of a medieval palace
