Art Deco Bedroom Ideas Vintage Fans Need to See!

Art Deco interior design has been huge for a while now, and an Art Deco bedroom has always been at the centre of it. The sweeping curves, the stepped forms and the jagged pointed edges inspired by skyscrapers are features we all love about Art Deco design.

In this article, we have researched what every Art Deco bedroom needs to feel like you’ve stepped into a beautiful blend of modern-day and 1920-30’s-40 design. From scalloped beds, Art Deco wallpaper, vanities that could belong to Greta Garbo and even deco fireplaces, you won’t believe how easy it is to make your bedroom a romantic vintage boudoir.

Sleep in style with an Art Deco bed

The most important part of an Art Deco bedroom is undeniably the bed. The beauty of an Art Deco bed is that its design clearly makes it the focal point of the room. From velvety upholstered, scalloped headboards to rich wooden ‘sunray’ circle Art Deco bedframes, your bedroom will undoubtedly stand out from the rest. We absolutely adore the grey, scalloped-style bed in the room above. Paired with a pouffe to match, panelled walls and an Art Deco bedside lamp, this Art Deco bed would look absolutely at home in the late 1920s.

Look like a movie star with an Art Deco vanity

An Art Deco vanity is also a significant part of the Art Deco bedroom. If you watch any film from this era, every leading lady is always lamenting for her lover as she gazes into her dressing table mirror! It’s a classic choice, and so it is a big must-have if you want to create the ideal vintage room. We adore the gold and white colours in this Art Deco-style dressing table. Again, we see the oversized circular shape in the mirror: a very popular design shape from this era. Paired with a cylinder velvet stool and Art Deco wall sconces, you really can’t get more deco than this.

If you don’t have room for a large Art Deco vanity and want something a little more subtle, we recommend one, as shown in the image above. The blend of natural wood and brass will make this dressing table ideal for various colour schemes. And don’t you just love the pop of colour from this vintage-style vanity chair? Orangalicious!

Feel fancy with Art Deco lighting (essential in an Art Deco bedroom)

You can’t get more 1930s American glam than glitzy Art Deco lighting; these glass and metallic Art Deco sconces perfectly sum this up. Ideal for installing on either side of your bed or above a cabinet in your bedroom, these dramatic yet beautiful Art Deco light fixtures will add a sense of glitz and glamour to your bedroom! They remind us of upside-down Empire State Buildings!

We also adore this rose-gold Art Deco sconces in the sitting corner of this Art Deco bedroom. They resemble the style of the ‘20s, ‘30s and '40s, but the brassy tones of the metal give them a modern edge. As well as wall lights, we adore this Art Deco bedside lamp with multiple heads. The matte black with the yellow-gold metallic tones is the epitome of old Hollywood style.

Get glam with draped Art Deco curtains

One way to significantly impact an Art Deco bedroom is by hanging beautiful, theatrical curtains. Whether you choose Art Deco fabric or plain fabric for your curtains, how you drape them really counts. First, make sure you are going for a very tall curtain display. Hang your curtain rail high – even a foot or more above the window frame will draw the eye upwards and create the illusion that you have beautiful, high ceilings.

And make sure your curtain fabric is LONG. Art Deco curtains need to crumble onto the floor like a cascading waterfall. As well as this, use rope fasteners so that you can really overaccentuate the droopy draped look. It needs to look glamorous and be similar to regency interior design.

Splash style onto your walls with an Art Deco wallpaper!

If you want people to step into your Art Deco home and really feel like they’ve time-travelled, then you NEED to adorn your walls in Art Deco wallpaper. Rich in Art Deco patterns, an Art Deco wallpaper will speak for itself. Often Art Deco wallpaper designs from this era were emerging slowly from the Art Nouveau period and still enjoyed repeat patterns of florals. We can see this influence in our Deco Feathers wallpaper design. Paired with mid-wall panelling and luxurious gold room accessories, this retro wallpaper brings that extra element of vintage style into this room.

When you look at this rose gold and navy wallpaper in this pink bedroom, you can’t help but accept it as beautiful Art Deco wall art. It may not be a painting by a renowned deco artist such as Erte or Tamara Lempicka. Still, it just oozes the glitz and glamour of this monumental period when interior design was drastically changing.

Another of our favourite Art Deco-inspired wallpapers is this simple yet effective panel wallpaper. Although simple, panelled walls were massive in this period, and lucky for us, panelling is also massive in the world of interior design today. Easier to install than actual wood panels, our range of 3D effect panel wallpaper comes in a range of colours and styles. They are more subtle than other Art Deco wallpapers, so we recommend dramatic deco furniture to make sure your Art Deco bedroom looks just the part!

Warm yourself with an Art Deco fireplace

It's such a treat if you have a working fireplace in your bedroom and an Art Deco fireplace in your bedroom will mirror the era. In the ‘20s and ‘30s, most people had a fireplace in their bedroom to keep them warm at night! So if you can install a vintage fireplace into your Art Deco bedroom, you really will add the cherry on top in the room’s interior design.

There are many ways to incorporate an Art Deco fireplace into your home. You may be lucky enough to have inherited a ‘30s fireplace in your home once you moved in. If not, we recommend choosing a dark wooden, angular frame with stepped forms on the sides. If you’re incredibly DIY-gifted and are up for a challenge, why not build your own brick and tile fireplace just like the blue one in the room above?

Accessorise with Art Deco ornaments

If you want a touch of art déco style in your bedroom, then a few Art Deco ornaments and accessories can make all the difference. Firstly, a sunburst mirror is a must. The sunburst design is a classic deco motif. As well as this, oversized standing sculptures, such as this gold palm tree, were commonly seen in a luxurious Art Deco home. Yes - it is a bold statement, but bold is key with Art Deco design.

Stuffed animal rugs were a huge thing in every wealthy Art Deco house. Instead, we’d recommend a faux fur rug to add glam elements like the pink one in the room above. As well as this, metallic circular shelving will act as handy storage and a small sculpture in the room. We suggest silver or gold animal sculptures, like this glamourous, metallic jaguar for the ultimate Art Deco ornament.

Hi Sara! When it comes to finding affordable art deco-inspired furniture, go to antique markets and charity shops to find unique items that you can leave as they are or give an art deco upcycled makeover! Our art deco wallpapers are economical because they are custom-made. No longer do you need to pay for excess wallpaper when all it is doing is going in the bin.
