The release of The Great Gatsby film in cinemas hasn’t just inspired our wardrobes in recent months; many of the latest home décor trends also boast Art Deco themes that are reminiscent of the 1920s. With this in mind, here are four steps to a Great Gatsby inspired living room.
Must Have Monochrome Hues
To channel Gatsby glamor, a black and white color theme is a must. If you have small rooms it is wise to create a colour theme that boasts white as the focus and include black accents as light shades open up a room and create the illusion of space whereas black colors tend to do the opposite. Break up the black and white theme with mahogany wood for a luxurious feel and create a stunning contrast that will wow your guests. Use cream colored fabrics with a shimmery finish for sofas, cushions and curtains to create a bright and airy atmosphere.
Add Glamor With Glass
The homes in The Great Gatsby film ooze glamor and if you want your own interiors to reflect this you will need to invest in a few opulent home accessories. A glass chandelier is one way to make a statement in your living room and a standout feature such as this can’t help but add some wow factor to your room. While the chandelier is the focus of the room in terms of lighting, it shouldn’t be your only source of light. Install a dimmer switch so you can create romantic lighting in seconds and introduce Art Deco style lamps and a few statement candles to complete the look.
Create Instant Elegance With Curved Lines
Gatsby style glamor can work in any room but there are some simple rules to follow if you want to emulate the essence of the 1920’s. Curved lines instantly give a room an elegant feel and you should keep this in mind when choosing furniture. The sofa, coffee table and lamps should all feature this theme. You can find stunning Gatsby style sofas online somewhere like Shackletons.
Don’t Forget Fresh Flowers
The importance of finishing touches cannot be played down. The colour scheme for Great Gatsby style rooms is fairly neutral and fresh flowers provide a simple way to add a pop of color to your rooms. Lilies, Peonies and pink or yellow roses complement this décor theme perfectly.
