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!
What about an elegant chaise lounge for those rainy days with a book, or when you just have to feel like a movie star!
Maybe these elegant chrome binoculars for looking out at the lake or spying on the neighbours!
Mirrored finishes always add glamour and reflect light into your space. Like these from handbag.com
In the Gatsby home the floors were magnificent, polished wood with intricate details. It can be re-created today like this amazing example.. Craftsmanship at it's best!
And who wouldn't want a closet like Gatsby's full of organized clothes? With Leonardo in it too maybe! I may do a spot of organizing this weekend and see what happens!
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!
Oh yeah and who doesn't love a yellow car!
