Style Secret: Black and WhiteBlack and white is the iconic art deco palette. Classic, sophisticated and timeless, it has an inherent drama that fits this style like a custom Chanel suit. And combined with the shine that typifies the art deco look, a black and white color scheme simply dazzles. Glam it up: Craving color? Go bright. Golden yellow, kelly green, peacock blue and regal purple all evoke the energy that pervaded the art deco era at its peak. Be savvy about using these brilliant hues, however — art deco interiors tend toward minimalism, so err on the side of restraint. Play them against a quieter backdrop and limit them to one or two dominant choices to avoid an over-the-rainbow mishmash.
