Today in ‘Things I’m Liking’ are three styles that are very representative of my own aesthetic leanings.
I love the Art Deco period. It’s very interesting to me because it spans such a long period of time: Started in the 1920s. Was strong through the 1930s and early 1940s and although it’s decline could be seen post WW2, you can still see it’s influence in design of the 50s… and again today with a lot of geometric design being so popular right now.
