Now, we're in a very small, very hot room with no decor—there is only an ominous-looking vault door.
I am so happy to read the above letters especially from MVL and decor.
It makes clear that, from the beginning, decor went hand-in-hand with serious modernist art.
1897, from French décor (18c.), back-formation from décorer "to decorate" (14c.), from Latin decorare (see decorate). It thus duplicates Latin decor "beauty, elegance, charm, grace, ornament." Originally a theater term in English; general use is since 1926.
