Art Deco / 1930’s Period

In Australia “Art Deco” refers to the 1930’s. The style originated in France in the 1920’s following the popular art nouveau movement, although a Hollywood influence was also apparent. An understated elegance together with the use of geometric motifs and characteristic colours are associated with the art deco era. Other common components of houses of this era include flat roofs, porthole windows, curved glass, steel framed windows, zigzags and geometric shapes, clean lines, curved motifs, glass bricks, bright pastel colours and hand rails lining balconies.
