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
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.
