Film and Fashion - Great Gatsby Style

film and fashion are a perfect match - the glamour, the luxury and the fantasy....but what about film and home fashion? 

The Great Gatsby is having some major influence on some home fashion designers this year.  The movie is set to release later his year and if you love a glamorous and luxurious look in Art Deco, that this is for you!  Like the book, the movie is set in the 1920's - the design and architecture of that decade is timeless...glitz, glamour, streamlines, clean lines and geometric shapes help define this style.

Want the look?

Try adding some art deco artwork in your home.

you can find art deco posters like this and many more on art.com

Add some mirrored furniture like a console table and  bedside tables are great spaces to start.  these pieces add sparkle and of course, glamour.

Add even more shine with metallics and silky and satin fabrics for pillows and curtains.  Bouclair Home and West Elm have some great and affordable options.

Add some art deco influence to your exterior with address plates,  the font style is so important to achieve that art deco look.  Etsy has some great and affordable options.

Mirrored furniture isn't the only way to get some sparkle and shine through furniture.  Try high gloss or lacquered furniture.  Again, armoires, dressers, end tables, consoles are all good options.

Geometric shapes were a big element of the era and style.  Try wall paper for an easy way to get some geometry in your room.  I love designer wall paper in a small space like a powder room or just an accent wall in a master bedroom or dining room.  Look for a wallpaper with some shine, metallic or polish

Add even more reflective surfaces with your accessories like bowls, sculpture etc....I love this set of binoculars from Restoration Hardware, they are almost sculptural themselves.

Lighting options should also include glass and metal two staples of the art Deco look.  i love to see chandeliers in unexpected places like bathrooms and bedrooms - it has a modern look but still a nod to the art deco feel.

Dress up your side tables, console table and even your make up vanity with some glass accents like bowl, perfume bottles and vases.
