That’s because the art deco style was characterized by the use of bold colours on all elements inside or outside the house. The style incorporates moody, noir film colours. It was not uncommon for interior decorators to use wine red, forest green, and teal colours. If you like, you can use jewel colours modernized into electric blue, powder pink, and tangerine. It is possible to paint only one wall with a bold colour and use statues or pillows to bring out the colour in the other walls.
