2. Entertaining art deco vintage posters
Baratti e Milano Torino, 1950, by Pluto
The Baratti e Milano Torino is a famous confectionery shop founded in 1858. This print features a sharp complementary colour contrast of orange and blue tones by Italian artist Pluto. The use of black colour slightly tones down the artwork for the subjects to pop through.

Perrier, 1995, by Bernard Villemot
This vintage poster is a fusion of minimalism and entertaining appeal. While it’s a commercial poster, the sensuality of the subject portrays art deco style. The artwork was designed by Bernard Villemot, who was a graphic and poster designer for multiple commercial agencies. Whether you’re a fan of Perrier the drink or Villemot the artist, this combination of aspects make this piece perfect to liven up a kitchen wall.
It is the vibrant colours used in the background and black in the foreground along with jewels that portrays entertainment in this poster. This use of colour and contrast is specific to Villemot. If your kitchen has a neutral wall like black, white, grey or any brown tones, adding the ‘Perrier’ vintage poster could bring more life and give the 90s pop feeling with a burst of colour!
