"Arts and Crafts Style brings together clean lines and fine craftsmanship."
Arts and crafts style interior design revolves around finely crafted furniture and interior features - usually of wood.
In the United States, a variation of this style that became popular through the years is called Mission Style.
Arts and Crafts interior elements feature prominent straight lines and a lack of excessive embellishment seen in some other traditional and classic styles. The careful craftsmanship of materials often provides a hint of native culture, particularly in the Mission Style variation which gives a nod to Spanish influence.
Geometric forms of stained glass-like mica establish a strong sense of Arts and Crafts when used for lamp shades, windows or panel inserts in cabinetry.
This style is versatile enough to work within a traditional or transitional environment.
-Look for wooden furniture featuring a series of square, vertical slats and simple construction.
- Consider an area rug or an accent fabric with a native, southwestern motif. It works well with this style
- Choose a brown based color palette for the more authentic look of Arts and Crafts, or opt for a more contemporary color scheme to convey a less literal look - like the bedroom shown here.
- Add Tiffany style lamps, especially those with pyramidal or rectilinear shades.
