Art Deco Wall Mirror

Here's a little design inspiration from the shores of Chesapeake Bay. This Art Deco-styled apartment is in Baltimore's Cantoon neighborhood.

As profiled in this Baltimore Sun article, the owner and designer based the interiors on the lifestyle idea of a successful bachelor with the desire to live in "...uptown, sophisticated ambience, which to the owner meant art deco-inspired furnishings."

Art Deco Living Room

The furniture grouping consists of a beige micro-fiber sofa, a leather armchair abd neutral fabric ottomoans. The Deco style mirror creates a dramatic sense of light and space. I like the dramatic Art Deco floor lamp beside the mirror.

The four-story brick home fronts the water's edge of Baltimore's Inner Harbor East. There are two deck with water views and an unobstructed view of downtown buildings.

Art Deco Bedroom

The bedroom features persimmon-colored walls and mahogany furniture with silk bed linens. A more contemporary floor lamp fills the room corner with light.

Rachel Simon Floor Lamp

For a lighter touch, this Rachel Simon Lights Up! floor lamp (above) would have made a nice fit.

A very successful look! As the owner says, "It's satisfying to have all the hard work come together...It's relaxing to be here."

    Thanks again!

  • How classy! That palm in the living room -- what species is that, or is it even real? I've never seen one grow quite that way and I love how it exemplifies the art deco knack for geometry.

  • Hi Amy - thanks for the comment! Well, we're not plant experts, but the leaf size and shape makes us think it is a banana plant, not a type of palm tree. It is a really unusual fan arrangement, so it's either artfully pruned or a faux plant. Whatever it is, if makes a really dramatic statement, thanks to the clipshade lighting from below, and really fills in the room corner nicely.
