a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

Modern Art Deco March 30, 2008

Inspired by our ongoing condo/house quest, I put together an inspiration board based on the theme of one of our favorite buildings so far: modern art deco. We visited some new upscale condos close to downtown yesterday, and the building design was really innovative. Most of the units are built around curves or interesting angles and each floorplan is unique.

I love the graphic and vintage style of art deco, but it can be a little heavy so lightening the mood with fresh colors and twists on patterns can be really effective. I think this would be a cool and artsy vibe for a wedding that still leaves a lot of wiggle room for personal taste.

    This looks surprisingly like my dining room. 🙂

  2. The classic lines and vibrant colors of Art Deco design are often beautifully displayed in antique cufflinks form the 1920s and 30s.

    I love Art Deco! Wish I could get myself a nice 1930s Chrysler to roll up in! I love your blog… would you like to exchange links? Yours, Elissa.

  4. The Cufflinks are beautiful. Slightly brushed silver true to picture. Craftsmanship beautiful, function properly, have had no problems
