Were you waiting for The Great Gatsby with baited breath like I was? Were you dying to see all the glamour, the beautiful clothes and even more beautiful people - a.k.a Leonardo Di Caprio. Well the movie certainly didn't disappoint . For a few hours I lost myself in the world of Jay Gatsby. It was a time for luxurious finishes and fabrics. Details and textures. Opulance was the name of the game.
Sitting on the floor surrounded by velvet cushions- why not? Recreate your own cushion collection.
How about art deco inspired wallpaper with a metallic finish. Amp up the glam factor!
Over all a great movie if you like beautiful design, people and fashion. If you haven't seen it maybe check it out this weekend. . . . . . get Gatsbied!

I have been working on my bedroom on and off for a while now and one thing I wanted to do was change out the night stands. Then one day I was on Pinterest ( daily obsession!) and I found some cool, modern diy tables. So..... I immediately sent the pin to my craft buddy Lisa and we both decided to make them. Same tables, different house so ok in design land! The tables were inspired by a design from CB2, so simple but clever. Wish I had thought of them first!
Here is the original inspiration from CB2 and then my Pinterest find from almostmakesperfect.com
