Delve into the sophisticated interiors of the roaring 1920s…. read more

A true classic penned by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the hotly anticipated cinematic release of The Great Gatsby is (finally!) released the week. Directed by award winning Baz Luhrmann, with A-list stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan playing the leading loved-up couple Gatsby and Daisy, we cannot wait to see this fascinating story translate from page to big screen.


Set in the glamorous settings of the 1920’s, designer Catherine Martin worked around the clock to re-create the art deco inspired interiors, with dazzling and lavish settings that represented this sophisticated decade. Ornate crystal chandeliers, marquetry flooring and gold-filigree ceiling were used to decorate the vast ballroom, home to Gatsby’s legendary parties.


If you’re feeling inspired by the 20’s luxe glamour and your home can’t quite fit a grand staircase or cocktail bar, you can certainly add subtle hints of art deco glamour to your living space with a nod to the Great Gatsby style…
