Art Nouveau in Home Decor

Art nouveau was a movement that occurred during the late 19th and early 20th centuries that aimed to create a more modern approach to design. It embraced all areas of design, including architecture, interior design, graphic art, furniture, textiles, and even jewelry. Much of the style is inspired by nature, not only by flowers and plants but also the beautiful structure of curved lines. Though the style is still appreciated and replicated often in today’s society, it became less prevalent in the 20th century when more modern styles came to be. However; art nouveau certainly paved the way between traditional 19th century styles and the modern sensibilities we know today.

When you look for it, you will see influences from art nouveau all around. It is a distinct style with a strong perspective that brings a lot of character to the spaces it touches. Here are ten examples of spaces featuring art nouveau decor, from the minimal to the more extensive.
