What better way to celebrate the design of the 20’s than with some Great Gatsby-themed inspiration. F. Scott Fitzgerald set his epic novel in Long Island and New York City right after World War 1. You would never know by the abundance of of alcohol consumption that this was during the time of prohibition! And the grandeur and opulence was just a few years away from the devastation of the Stock Market Crash and the drastic change of lifestyle that followed…
During this time, however, we are treated to some of the most glamorous Art-Deco style decor that, quite possibly, may never be seen again. Art-Deco style, with its strong geometric shapes and clean lines, mixed with the gild and glamour of Hollywood, produced some of the most opulent Interior Design of the decade. The recently released movie version of the Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann, brings this design to life on the big screen.
We tried to take some of those designs and share some ways you can get the look in your home! So, take a trip with us down the streets paved with gold and let’s all dream just a little bit!
No one does it better than Christopher Guy when it comes to opulence and old time Hollywood glamour. This dramatic wood framed upholstered headboard and bed frame with gilded accents the perfect place for Daisy Buchanan to get her beauty sleep, don’t you think??
The grander the better… and these tables have the embellishments to fit in any 20’s inspired decor!
Christopher Guy nails it again with this luxurious and aptly named “Bardot” curved and channel sofa. Kick off your shoes and relax!
We are always a fan of Mr. and Mrs. Howard for Sherrill Furniture when it comes to elegant upholstered furniture. This Dressing bench would be right at home in Daisy’s bedroom.
Love the 20’s for its glitz and glamour, but what’s even better is how the design of the time can continue to be transformed for the home of today!
