Get the Look: classic Art Deco

Muted colours and vintage-inspired decor work together with ornate detailing to create a sophisticated, glamorous look.

The very feminine look of this home comes courtesy of its soft muted decor and vintage-inspired touches. This pretty etched mirror by Laura Ashley would help recreate the look in a bedroom or dressing area. Dh1,310, Laura Ashley, Mercato Mall Dubai


Bevelled mirror pieces like those in the bedroom are quintessentially glamorous but can be pricey. For a smaller version, choose something like this wardrobe box. Dh225, Zara Home


Anouska's striking black and gold lamp was a flea market find that emphasises the glamorous feel of the room. This similarly ornate Archer gold leaf lamp, also from Laura Ashley, also has that typical Art Deco look. Dh406, Laura Ashley


Chinese Girl by Vladimir Tretchikoff has become a kitsch classic in recent years. A stretched canvas of the print can be shipped to the UAE in a few days, while the cheaper print version will slip easily into an off-the-shelf frame. Dh180-Dh603, www.allposters.co.uk
