Features of the modern style
Now let’s take a closer look at the distinctive features of art Nouveau, or as it is also called Art Nouveau.

Designers ‘ favorite colors are ash-pink, deep scarlet, smoky and beige. Often resort to the method of bright spots on relatively pale backgrounds, for example, put a red pillow on a light chair.
Speaking of lighting, functionality also plays a big role here, meaning that the room can be lit very brightly by a large chandelier, and if desired, you can leave a few small lamps. Naturally, chandeliers should correspond to Art Nouveau, they are laconic, rather restrained color scheme, the lack of which makes up for the variety of forms. Often, along with the chandelier, small lamps are carelessly “scattered” around the room.
