Art Nouveau

Almost as a reaction to the excesses of the Victorian taste with Art Nouveau everything becomes more simple. Clutter is reduced drastically. Drapery is now simple, light colours to create a spacious look.

Dado rails are mostly gone and wallpapers and borders are popular in the art Nouveau motifs. Woodwork is also painted in creamy whites and furniture lighter and more delicate.

To get the look keep the room light and airy. Plain walls with stenciling or borders if you donít like the Art Nouveau or Adam style wallpapers.

Polished wooden floors with rugs or pastel carpets with no pattern

Elegant simple dressing for the windows and lighting and accessories should be a piece of cake with all the stuff thatís available.

This time is known for the advent of our very own Charles Rennie Mackintosh of whom we in Scotland are very proud.

His designs are instantly recognizable around Glasgow, and synonymous with Art Nouveau.

Art Nouveau at The Geffrye Museum London and The Glasgow School of Art.
