Sheila Sabine - Design Tip - Art Deco


Art Deco details have always been associated with good design. You can add your own details. Even on a smaller scale. Hand painted ceilings, turquoise accent pots, unusual shaped tables and couches, and much more. Let your imagination have its own experience.
