Decade of Interiors
Interior Design has seen some big changes throughout the ages, with each decade curating a unique style of its own. Our design team loves to incorporate these different styles to create a design that combines the best looks from each decade. Join us as we introduce you to some of the signature designs seen throughout the times.
1920’s Art Deco. This distinctive periodic style accentuates luxury interior design with sharp lines and geometric shapes. Our designers love to create concepts that incorporate bold colors and visually interesting patterns, giving a nod to this era in history that is rich in luxurious architecture and high design. Inspired by 1920’s Art Deco, Alder & Tweed recreated that timeless “Gatsby” feel in this penthouse suite bar. The gold accents and bold colors captured in these other designs demonstrate the perfect way to capture the era while adding a unique flare to your home.

1930’s-1940’s Modernist. Moving into a more clean and simplistic look, Modernist design is all about pairing sharp lines with modern touches. Creating an open layout also plays an essential role in capturing that Modernist design aesthetic, an aesthetic that is still very influential in the design world today. Alder & Tweed has captured the essence of the Modernist period in this mountain modern home, bringing in furniture and lighting pieces inspired by the decade, as well as designing with some of the most popular colors of that time, incorporating grays, blacks, and oranges.
