Curved Lines

In 1929, the very first Academy Awards ceremony took place, and that was during the Art Deco heyday. Curved lines, the popular feature of Art Deco design, are carried through furniture and architecture of the ceremony. It is pretty easy to add some curved or rounded elements to interior design that will also bring a soft and elegant feel to your place. Here are some ways to add it:

  • Buy seating with rounded arms or curved chairs;
  • Add a round rug or mirror;
  • Add different accessories with rounded edges or oval shapes;
  • Find and purchase oval or round tables;
  • Add patterns with rounded or curvy geometry on toss pillows or wallpapers.

Ornate Items

Oscar style has nothing in common with minimalism. You can search for different items that have an extra detail, for instance, glass with carved texture, an interesting pattern on a mirrored surface, or something that has a bold pattern.

Luxurious Bar

Oscar style can also be supplemented with a luxurious bar. Think of a mirrored tray that has your favorite drinks and vintage glasses. Another great way is to make a separate area for a bar. A built-in bar always looks great and rich.

You can choose your favorite elements from those mentioned above that are absolutely up to you. It is pretty easy and affordable to make a room that would look luxurious. If you do not want to implement these ideas in your interior design for a long time, you can still use these tips for creating an Oscar atmosphere at a party. A little bit of red and gold, something sparkly will create an outstanding environment in your place for a great entertaining time.
