I had a chance to do a little work on my Art Deco house. I think, however, that I should explain that I use the term Art Deco as a catch-all term for all of the modernist designs of the Jazz Age era. So, Art Deco, as I use it, can mean Art Moderne, Streamline Modern, Modernism or even Screen Deco (Hollywood's version of Art Deco, used in films of the 1920s and 1930s). I have to admit that I have a very (very) big weakness for Screen Deco films.
If you recall, my Art Deco house started out as an old radio case:
Here is what it looks like now (the pictures are not fantastic, but you can see that the radio has been turned upside down, and there are a few temporary, domino,stairs):
(The "flapper" is a dollar-store find).
Here are the stairs, the other way around.
The radio has become a 1:16 scale Art Deco bungalow. Here are some inspiration pictures:
The flat roof will house a patio (with red "ceramic tiles").
The inside will have three levels, along these lines (the bottom two photos are from "Lady for a Day."
The first level will be at the entrance, and the domino stairs will lead to the living room.
The "glass" walls are bobbin holders, and they will be used as book case, room dividers.
The second level will be the kitchen area, this will be level with the large window, and will have a stairs down to the dining area,
The large mirror will probably move to the dining area since I want to build one of these fireplaces for the living area:

The kitchen will include many of these elements (photos from "My Man Godfrey"), but in a much smaller area:
The bedroom and the bathroom will be in a separate room, made of picture frames, that will be built on to the side of the house.
Here are some other elements that will be in the house:
(I love this color):
And this art work:
