Art Deco is an iconic design style from the 1920s that was recently given a new lease of life thanks to the movie The Great Gatsby.
The design we’ll be creating in this tutorial is an intricate mix of angular lines to create a complex art deco style pattern. It is possible to create geometric designs directly in Photoshop, but since Illustrator is designed specifically for working with vector shapes, why not make use of its powerful tools? Drag a selection around all the lines then right click and select Make Guides from the menu. Reduce the weight of the stroke to 10pt and continue drawing lines that flow in random directions. Hold Shift while rotating this duplicate of shapes to 90°, then align them to fit within the next segment of guides. Make multiple duplicates of this group of lines and rotate or reflect them to create a symmetrical layout around the entire design. Select the Rectangle tool, hold the ALT & Shift keys then click and drag a perfect square originating from the centre of the guides. With both square shapes selected, click the Merge option from the Pathfinder panel to blend these shapes together to form an 8 pointed geometric star.
Duplicates of the centre star shape have been building up as we made copies of the elements. Lock this current layer and add a new layer for the next series of elements in the centre of the design. The intricate art deco style pattern is taking shape, but we’ll add one more layer for some finishing touches.
Press and hold the CMD+D shortcut to Transform Again, until the whole area is filled with equally spaced rectangles. Copy (CMD+C) and Paste in Front (CMD+F) a duplicate of the lines, then select the Rotate tool. Despite being created from a few simple lines, the overall pattern is looking really complex and definitely captures the art deco theme. Unlock just the first layer of shapes and copy them to the clipboard, then open up Adobe Photoshop.
Give the background a black fill, then double click the first layer and add a Gradient Overlay Layer Style.
Edit the layer styles and alter the direction angle of the gradient to flow in a different direction for each layer to randomise the colours.
Change the blending mode of the texture layer to Overlay and reduce its opacity to around 30% to create a subtle texturing effect.
Change the blending mode of this new gradient layer to Soft Light and reduce the opacity slightly to 95%. Open the layer style properties of the pattern layers and adjust the opacity by varying amounts to produce slightly different tones between the elements.
Change the blending mode of this white spots layer to Overlay to produce a series of subtle highlights. The final pattern has all the geometric features of the art deco style and the classy metal effects from The Great Gatsby movie poster.

The design style that hold its roots  in the 20’s of the last century- Art-Deco is still a big influence in the modern interior design. The appearance of this bold Art-Deco living room is utterly stunning and done with exceptionally sophisticated and profound taste of style.
The high contrast of the white walls decorated with fierce black wood panels creates solid visual foundation in the white and grayish living room, furnished with classic furniture and enhanced with a chandeliers and luxury elements that provide the place with opulent and sumptuous ambiance.
This utterly charming living room has a bold and dramatic layout which wisely soothed down by the coral peach wall color and the nice natural light that comes through the wide big window that strikes on the distinctive Art Deco elements in this super bold and modern Art-Deco living room. We love the eclectic party that is going on in this utterly bright and bold Art-Deco Living Room. This simple Art-Deco living room has a perfectly bright and charming layout and therefore super cheery and modern appearance.

The muted pink color scheme really works for creating a charming and sophisticated ambiance in this amazing Art-Deco Living room.
The variety of patterns and colors has created a truly opulent and sumptuous ambiance in this gorgeous Art-Deco living room.
We love how the designer has merged the freshness from the turquoise and the sleekness from the white tone and has created an unbelievably  fresh and at the same time elegant and classy ambiance. Geometric, angular shapes and symmetry are some of the key features of the art deco style, which produce some beautiful graphic designs when used as backgrounds, frames and patterns. To really give it the extravagant Great Gatsby treatment we’ll use Photoshop to add realistic shiny metal and lighting effects. Create a new Illustrator document and begin by drawing a horizontal and vertical line across the artboard. Deselect everything then right click and select Lock Guides to avoid accidentally moving them.
Increase the stroke weight to 20pt and draw a path between the diagonal and horizontal guides.
Holding CMD and clicking the artboard is a quick technique to finish a path before starting a new one. If you were designing this art deco pattern as a frame, outline areas where text elements could be added.
The shapes probably won’t fit perfectly, so scale them down to leave an equal gap at both ends.
Hold ALT and set the pivot point to the centre of the guides, then hold Shift and rotate the shapes by 90° to fit into the other sides of the design. The scale of the Photoshop document will probably be much smaller, so enlarge the canvas and scale up all the Smart Object layers.
You might need to rearrange the stacking order of the layers to hide any overlapping elements. Configure an alternating black & white gradient and drag it out diagonally across the canvas.
Add spots of white across the design in the empty space between the line elements, allowing just the soft edge of the brush to touch the artwork.
Leaving the centre area free and just decorating the edges would create a beautiful frame to hold text elements, or complete designs like this could be used to fill the back of a business card or leaflet. Only films that are available by the metre (eg frosted, decorative, cling, safety, solar films) and our All Over Patterns can be sent as samples, bespoke designs cannot.
For accurate measuring, take a measurement at the top and bottom, as well as the left and right side of the glass.
The non frosted film will also give you privacy but we wouldn't recommend it for a bathroom for example.
Select the "transparent" option if you would like the pattern or text to be a clear void within the film (price premium for this option).
The non frosted film will still allow for some privacy so would be ideal for a front door, but we wouldn't recommend it's use in a bathroom where privacy is more of an issue, and where the frosted film option would be more suitable.
The glass should be smooth, so in some cases where the glass is rippled or patterned on the inside, the only option might to apply the film externally.


The Art-Deco style is a specific eclectic blend of prominent colors such as gold and silver with combinations of soft muted colors: beige, cream, off white. The usage of prominent colors such as gold and brown is perfectly applied with the striped wallpaper and ingeniously brighten up with the whismiscal artwork with pulsating colors. The color disposition is greatly done, so the place has a funky noise that is hard not to notice.
