This summer’s larger-than-life adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby is generating lots of buzz, and has inspired a resurgence of 1920s style. From fashion to home design, touches of the roaring twenties are making comeback in a big way.
Check out our picks for bringing some of Gatsby glamor to your home this summer.
Spectacular and sparkling, Baz Lurhmann’s summer 2013 film certainly is a feast for the eyes. If your home décor is hungry for some glam, metallic throw pillows, mirrored picture frames, and other blinged-out accessories are easy ways to add a touch of Gatsby glitter to your existing design.
Synonymous with the roaring 20s is art deco design. Angular geometric lines channel the 1920s while bringing a modern edge to your space. We especially love geometric wall mirrors: they create the illusion of larger space, and are a contemporary nod to Gatsby style without going overboard.
Black and white is a classic art deco color pairing, and is still in demand with today’s designers. Playing with black and white, and adding accent colors like gold brings a bit of Gatsby drama to your space without turning your home into a movie set. Begin with your favorite sofa in black, and then add metallic touches. Tie the look together with contemporary black and white wall art for a subtle 1920s look that’s perfect for today.17 x 17 Gold and Black Pillow – Sofa Mart
