Great Gatsby Decor

There has been tons of buzz around the new Great Gatsby movie, which opens tomorrow, May 10th! Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Jazz Age novel about love and ambition, the movie features the glamorous Art Deco style. The film’s director, Baz Luhrman, teamed up with his wife, designer Catherine Martin, to create the elaborate sets. Here’s a sneak peak at the decor from the movie set:

Gatsby’s Ballroom

Gatsby’s massive ballroom, which is probably the grandest room created for the movie, is filled with ornate elements like inlaid wood floors, glistening marble walls, pendant chandeliers, and sky-high windows dressed in sheer drapery. Silver candelabras scattered around the perimeter of the room set a romantic mood. Martin envisioned that the snaking staircase did not come with the mansion, but that Gatsby had it installed himself. “We talked about somebody coming in with a lot of money and what changes he would make to certain rooms,” Martin said.

Gatsby’s Bedroom

Gatsby’s bedroom contains an array of dazzling ’20s trends like glossy furniture and metals. Rich, dark hardwood columns create a grand frame for the room and ground the harlequin-pattern wall covering and the gray & gold Art Deco rug.

Buchanan’s Sitting Room

Yet another mansion in The Great Gatsby belongs to character Tom Buchanan, whose sitting room evokes the work of Hollywood Golden Age designer Dorothy Draper, popular in the ’30s for her ornate decorating style. Geometric silks, exaggerated florals, and gilded furniture give this room its expensive, opulent look.
