Glam It Up with Art Deco and Art Nouveau Home Decor

Is your home decor looking lackluster—or simply missing that je ne sais quoi? Perhaps what it needs is a marriage of modern and vintage panache. The Art Deco style is the cat’s meow! Popular in the 1920s and ‘30s, this aesthetic remains one of the most appealing styles in architecture and home decor. Bold color duos like black and gold and clean geometric lines reflect the Art Deco sensibility. Stark, repeating motifs of triangles and rays also hark back to the period.

If you yearn for a more romantic look, select home decor with intricate details, swirling curves, and ornamental beauty. These shapely pieces will lend an Art Nouveau quality to your decor.

8 Creative Uses for Table Runners

The humble table runner can be the ultimate versatile piece for savvy decorators. Though it’s typically displayed length-wise across a dining table, a runner is not limited to a certain room or setting. If there’s a flat surface that needs dressing up, a table runner just might be the answer!

Here are a few ideas:

1. Embellish a vanity table
Feel all the more pampered when you sit at your vanity table. Drape an elegant runner across the vanity, and place your mirrored tray and accessories on top. Look for a runner that’s more ornate than usual, like one with lace or fringe.

2. Love the layered look
Let table runners decorate in tandem! Place a solid color runner down first, then top it with a narrower runner in an eye-catching print. If you’re feeling especially bold, try two contrasting prints; this approach works best if one pattern has a smaller scale than the other.

3. Glam up a dresser
Give the top of your dresser luxe appeal with a fancy table runner. Or, if you prefer a more carefree vibe, select a Bohemian-style runner and top it with a small paper lantern or exotic covered jars.

4. Beautify a console table
Give a little life to a neglected console table with a pretty floral runner and a faux flower arrangement in similar colors.

5. Make an entertaining change
Keep a TV console or media cabinet from looking stark by softening it with a runner. A runner with cutwork edging provides a quaint touch, while a striking pattern amps up the drama.

6. Festoon the fireplace
Use a table runner as a mantel scarf. This solution is great for holiday decorating too—a specialty runner atop the mantel is the perfect place to put all those seasonal baubles and figurines.

7. Change your perspective
Instead of placing the runner down the length of a dining room table, turn it so it drapes across the width. Add multiples if it works with your place settings.

8. Cozy up a coffee table
After you’ve piled decorative pillows and a throw on the sofa, the coffee table looks rather bare. Warm up the surface with a table runner; play with textures like burlap or macrame.

Decorating Ideas: Fabulous Flower Wall Art Collages

Let a flower garden bloom on your wall! A floral wall art collage is perfect for large wall spaces like the area above the sofa, and the look is perfectly customizable. “Collect” a bouquet of metal wall art blossoms in your favorite hues, and display them however you like on a wall.

In both looks below, we chose a 26” dia. mirrored flower as the focal point, then arranged other metal flowers around it. For a little extra glamour, we selected a couple flowers with gem accents.

The first look is perfect for spring; a pretty array of pinks, purples, and blues are softly complemented by ivory and aqua. An openwork console table, stained glass lamp, petal pillow, and floral canvas complete the lovely arrangement.
