Great Gatsby Glamour

Glittering, swinging shift dresses, rhythmic, big band jazz, and glamorous, smoky supper clubs — what’s not to love about the 1920s? I’ve waxed on about the era before, and regularly daydream about travelling back in time à la Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris.

Next month Baz Luhrmann is bringing the Roaring ’20s to life in The Great Gatsby — who else was crushed when they postponed the Christmas release? Known for his theatrical productions, Gatsby will undoubtedly treat viewers to a visual feast complete with killer soundtrack.

I love the story, but I’m even more excited to see the Art Deco wardrobe and set design: elegant flapper girls, mirrored surfaces, geometric prints and sleek gold accents. In anticipation of its release, I’ve rounded up a few home decor pieces that will infuse any space with Gatsby glamour.

The mirrored front and delicate trellis woodwork on this sideboard evokes the elegance of the era.

A duvet with a sophisticated colour palette and stylized geometric print is reminiscent of the best Art Deco textiles.

Give a nod to the drama of Old Hollywood with this graceful velvet settee.

Four panels of smoked tinted glass and antique brass edging give this side table an elegant, geometric look.

Serve bubbly in hand-cut crystal coupes to evoke a bygone era. The large open rim was designed specifically to serve champagne, allowing the bubbles to sprinkle your face with each sip.

Metallic accents were ubiquitous in the ’20s and this frosted diamond pillow adds just the right amount to a sofa.

No Gatsby-esque room would be complete without a sparkling tiered chandelier.

An etched gold photo frame with geometric bone inlay strikes a glamorous note.

The Great Gatsby hits theatres May 10th. Watch the trailer here! Can’t get enough Gatsby? Pick up the May issue of Vogue, featuring a gorgeous editorial with the film’s star, Carey Mulligan, and listen to a preview of the soundtrack here.
