Inspirations: Gatsby Deco

24 May 2013

By now, I'm sure the whole planet knows about The Great Gatsby film by Baz Luhrmann starring Leonardi diCaprio and Carey Mulligan.  Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, the film might have mixed reviews for acting and story telling but you can't deny that the movie set was perfect  on par with the gilded opulence, flamboyant grandeur, and over-the-top decadence of Gold Coast mansions and estates.

I was a bit afraid that I wouldn't like the film and to some extent it's not a great movie but I can't deny my fascination with the exuberant eye popping soirees at Gatsby's grand mansion, the lavish, sublime fashions of that ear and the sparkle of that engagement ring that Daisy wore so well.

To inspire those who love the Art Deco style, I've put together a pinterest board of my favorite Gatsby looks including a gorgeous halo, deco, vintage styled engagement ring for those who want to "own" a little Gatsby inspired engagement ring.   Gatsby design is about beautiful lines which you see in vintage Rolls Royce's.  Opulent chandeliers like the black one featured in our board.  It's about lush flowers.  In the film orchids and large bloom hydrangeas are featured because they are hot house flowers and thus in that era perceived to be more expensive.     Other decor elements that you can add to your Gatsby Deco inspired wedding could include gold flatware, yellow hued pearls, jeweled headpieces, and champagne coupes.
