My Late 1920’s, Art Deco Boudoir
Here are some of the photos. I’m caught between the Art Deco era and the Belle Epoque, Art Nouveau era. I really love both.
I’m almost done finishing my room again.. I recently bought an Art Deco brush set, which is bakelite (a type of plastic from the turn of the 20th century). I’m getting rid of my nonsense collectibles that someone gave me. I wanted a “Great Depression” looking room to mimic the times we’re in. Yeah…Goofy, huh? I like living in reality, though. It’s where I see we are headed.. I used to LOVE hearing my Grandmother’s stories about the Great Depression. They lived on a farm, so they didn’t starve. The people in the nearby city – many were very hungry. My Great Grandmother fed many poor in her garage and they slept there at times.
My Bakelite set, above and below. The perfume bottles, I got here: LitttleBits.
The purse in the back of that little doll is a late 40’s evening bag – celluloid (I think), all encapsulated with bronze beads. You can’t really see the purse on top of it but it is a 30’s Whiting and Davis bag. The little white trinket round box is from the 80’s actually. It is Hedy Lamarr.
I made these photos dark on purpose…to give it that ‘boudoir’ look..
Here are a couple for your viewing pleasure:
I could just weep over what the Communist radicals have done to this nation
