Going for a Art Deco, or Style Moderne, look in a bathroom may sound like an extravagant endeavor, but you may not know that many classic bathroom features are rooted in Deco style. That makes cherry picking the particular elements that will make your heart soar a snap. For example, a traditional pedestal sink with a gorgeous marble topper is one easy way to tap into the Deco look. If that sounds like too heavy a lift, a Style Moderne-inspired wallpaper punctuated with a mirror influenced from the same period will give a bathroom a 1920s vibe. There are more ideas to consider, behold the following Art Deco-inspired bathrooms.
