Create a chic two-tone effect with interlocking wallpapers in contrasting colourways – no dado rail required...

Harlequin designs were a favourite Art Deco device, so add depth to a painted surface with simple beading laid out in diamond bands.

Play with scale and form by teaming a graphic, modernist rug with miniature, parquet-style prints on the walls.

This vibrant wallpaper revives a popular Deco motif in punchy pops of purple and green.

Add period panache to a contemporary shade with a geometric fabric teamed with a deep-blue trim.

Celebrate the era’s love of classical signatures by introducing Greek key scrolls on to a painted backdrop.

Inject subtle variations in texture with a metallic wallpaper inspired by a scallop-shaped mosaic – its weathered-effect colours make for a clever update on the period’s love of repeated patterns.

Give a curvaceous armchair, based on a Thirties design, a luxe look with fabulously detailed velvet upholstery. Finish with a thick fuchsia fringe for an on-trend twist.

Reimagine your window with florals inspired by Thirties icons, such as New York’s Chrysler Building.

Art Deco’s stylised fans get a modern makeover with shimmering embroidery and muted grey tones.

Reinvent a trad eiderdown with swathes of colour – these funky new silks have an almost metallic sheen.
