School decoration Elena Teplitskaya: interior in the style of Art Deco

How to convey beauty, grace with the help of decorand the self-irony of the "jazz era"? Designer Elena Teplitskaya continues to share useful tips for decorating an interior in different styles. This is explained primarily by historical events: during the period when the famous - albeit short - era of happiness reigned in the West, revolutions and terrible repressions took place on the territory of our country. The only place where you can see the so-called Russian Art Deco is some stations of the Moscow metro, since a lot of money was invested in its construction, and the architects took into account the fashion trends of that time. But all this does not negate the touching love of Russians for the Art Deco style. Cognac brown and glossy black, zebrano, crystal, glass and matte gold perfectly take root both in rich mansions and in small apartments. By the way, this is another secret of the popularity of Art Deco: it is quite suitable for chamber interiors, so even 30 squares can be harmoniously decorated in this style.

First of all, Elena recommends carefully choosing antiques or at least good copies of well-known models, the originals of which are no longer realistic to get. Be sure to visit the European antique markets, especially in Nice and London. In the latter, these are mainly Camden Market and Portobello. Beware of counterfeits! It is better not to go "to the top", but to go down, deep into the market, where there are small boutiques. They contain Wedgwood porcelain, English Art Deco prints, antique writing instruments and other unique gizmos. Please note that these are the boutiques that require you to act: go down, find, explore, view the goods. Better yet, not just see everything for yourself, but also talk to the owners and make it clear that this is not a random tourist in front of them. In this case, there is a chance to get something very rare. Family history However, it is not onlyantiques. If there is no way to visit the European collapse of antiques, copies of famous prints of that time, reproductions and stylized photographs, such as portraits or retro photographs with a sports theme (tennis, golf), will help to recreate the atmosphere of the era. It is important to frame such photos correctly: for Art Deco, some pretty black lacquered frame with silver inside and a gray mat will do. Be sure to cover it with glass, because glass and reflections in general are integral attributes of the Art Deco style. An important condition, without which the interior will notTruly alive and not play with colors - history. Imagine: you bring home from Nice an old golf club. But do not just bring it, but fill it with history: how, by digging around in the ruins, a man with a mustache, similar to your grandfather, met him casually; That this grandfather had the same club, and so you bought it. And even if in fact Grandfather had no whiskers and he never played golf, any thing - and any of us - always needs some kind of story. Unfortunately, today in the territory of the former USSRRarely this substantive succession of generations is encountered, when something was transferred from great-grandfather to grandfather, from grandfather to father and from father to son. We have such items from great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers very little, because in the era of revolutions, repression and persecution, things, people, and connections were lost. Most people today have almost nothing left of their ancestors, so even the most insignificant or fictitious story from the life of the family is very welcome in the Art Deco style. Why is Art Deco so tenacious in Russia?I would name three main reasons: first, it looks glamorous. Secondly, it is considered very fashionable. Thirdly, because of the charm of David Suchet, who starred in our beloved series "Poirot", and the overall aesthetics of the paintings of that time. ELENA TEPLITSKAYA, DESIGNER
