Evening Elegance Detail
An Art Deco bedroom scene in which a lady wearing a stylish "Bob" is venturing out on a special evening with her beau. The colorful clothing in her closet is a good contrast used against the three main colors ( gold, black and white) in the bedroom and bathroom.
As the lady touches up her make up in the mirror of the powder compact she is pondering whether her evening gown, shoes, gloves and beaded purse are ready for the occasion. Her hat box in the wardrobe display an array of hats. Cloches and bandeau's and clutch handbags of animal fur were popular then.
The glassblock wall divides the bathroom and the bedroom.This design captures the Streamlined Moderne look of the 1930's.The black furniture and aerodynamic look of rounded corners, gold speed stripes and porthole mirrors was a trend of that era.
The Whippet dog with diamond studded collar watches his mistress as she is preparing on her evening venture out. The pet cat is at play with a chain hanging over the chair from the beaded handbag. The lady has placed her cigarette and martini at the end of the bed whilst she is checking her make up. The Nina Ricci perfume bottles on the dresser, bedside lamps portray a look of modernism.
The checkered black and white floor and the tulip tochiere lamps lend to the taste of this era.
In the bathroom, the mirrors, chairs and pink fluted vase complete the scene for this modernistic age.
The Calla lillies in the hallway and the photo on the wall add to this trend of modernism.
