Pattern's in the 20's

I thought it would be fun to do a series on fabric patterns throughout the years. I decided to start with the 20’s because I really love the bold, contrasting colors Art Deco designers used. What did we get from art deco? Bold colors, monochromatics, and geometrics. Here is a glimpse of some of my favorites:
