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 little doll to the right was given away at the Carnivals in the late 20’s, early 30’s when you won the game.
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… (You can right click and see them larger)
The pink fabric next to this Jumeau repro doll is a flapper night cap. Its adorable. The lovely lady in the green dress is a Ballerina figurine from the late 30’s.
I like sepia photos of the silent era movie stars..
This is a shadowbox that is “OOAK”, [One of a kind]. Anyway, that’s all for now. I’m finishing my room! Maybe I’ll put it on a Youtube vid 🙂
Here are a couple for your viewing pleasure:
I could just weep over what the Communist radicals have done to this nation
