Oswald's Inspiration


Choosing the Right Builder for Your Art Deco Dream Home

Defined by a fusion of modern decorative elements, geometric precision, and a commitment to luxury and craftsmanship, Art Deco defined the 1920s and 1930s. Art Deco sparked a design revolution in the early 20th Century, inspiring architects, artists and designers around the world.



Today’s Art Deco architecture has been given a modern twist, while still retaining its sophistication with its elegant, opulent and exotic feature. If you’re looking to build your dream home, using Art Deco as the foundation for your design inspiration is a great idea if you want a decorative, luxurious and edgy home.

The design of these homes are a celebration of geometry and symmetry, defined by vertical lines and streamlined shapes. Curved walls are ubiquitous in Art Deco homes, creating soft, rounded corners that introduce asymmetry to elevations and highlight grand architectural features like porticos and balconies.

Art Deco designs are defined by an extravagant use of metals, particularly chrome, brass, and stainless steel. Natural marble and stone are often used to add understated elegance. You’ll often see black or charcoal-coloured doors and windows, and balustrades reminiscent of the railings on an ocean liner. White renders are used to make the black accents pop while keeping the whole look fresh, elegant and modern.
