"You are a king by your own fireside as much as any monarch in this throne" – Miguel De Cervantes
As we are sure you already know by now, Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby film was released to theaters this weekend and the world is abuzz. This latest visual masterpiece from the director stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the lead character, Jay Gatsby and is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name. Jay Gatsby is a millionaire in his own right, inhabiting a sprawling mansion which could be considered Long Island, New York’s version of a castle. As Luhrmann’s interpretation of the classic novel hits the big screen, we are sure that this film will influence and inspire fashion and home trends in the near future. Set in the 1920’s, the Great Gatsby takes place during the beginning of the art deco movement. During a period where society shifted from the stuffy and traditional decor of the Victorian era, the art deco era was one that brought color back into people’s homes with jazzy patterns and vibrant hues. The 1920’s were also a time of carefree social attitudes and economic prosperity and the home decor and fashion trends showcased these sensibilities by utilizing luxurious fabrics and elaborate detailing.
It is from this influence that House Of Thrones has created their newest inspire board aptly titled The Great Gatsby. This room would be a perfect office for anyone who wanted to add a little glamor and luxury into their home. Featuring muted tones of gold and green, we have selected some beautiful art deco patterns to create the basis for this theme. This room’s main focal point is the stunning black and gold desk which is right on trend when paired with a beautiful gold bamboo chippendale chair. In order to achieve the 1920’s feel, we have chosen vintage inspired accents that emphasize glamor and elegance. Our chosen accessories range from a vintage radio and table lamp true to the era, to modern day reproductions of vintage telescopes and film camera and the room is completed with a beautiful tufted cream chaise chair.
We hope you like our Great Gatsby themed office design. Let us know what you think. Your feedback is always appreciated and don’t forget to follow us on twitter @houseofthrones
