If you feel called upon by the title of this article, you are indeed a connoisseur of fine art! Although Art Nouveau initially reached peak popularity back in the 19th century, the movement's influence is still subtly visible in our modern age, carefully and artfully hidden amidst wall installations and furniture carvings.
Before jumping into decorating your home in the Art Nouveau style, let's take a look at a time when this ornamental style was considered popular culture. Inspired by Japanese ornaments and the art of wood cutting, Art Nouveau’s defining feature is the use of long and connecting lines that mimic nature.
One of the most famous art styles in our modern times definitely give off Nouveau vibes: Batik. How and why, you may ask? Modern Batik designs more often than not include connecting long lines and elements of nature. Sound familiar? Some might even consider the Victorian elements of Art Nouveau to mirror the aesthetics of modern Batik in Asia!
Jacktus’ Peranakan Tiles Patterned Pillows are great as a first step towards achieving your lifelong dream of running an Art Nouveau-esque museum! The essence of modern batik in Peranakan styles, along with their bright colours are perfect for welcoming guests from far and wide, while giving your space that much needed pop!
As much as we have advanced and adapted to modern civilisation, Batik is still very much part of our lives. Homegrown brands like batikTEKTURA that incorporate the general concept of Batik into their contemporary ideas emulate the origins of Art Nouveau and came to be. With the Liku style that defines the brand itself, you'll be able to keep a part of Art Nouveau near you at all times.
Nobody wants to look at an empty wall, which goes to show that wall art is vital when you're decorating!

When in doubt, you can never go wrong by adding a little cute in life!
