Interiors from Great the Gatsby Movie

If you haven't seen the Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo Dicaprio, you should watch it....after reading my post on the interiors.  I actually stumbled on this  and thought I should share it anyways.

The movie was set in the early 1920's just before the great depression caused by the Wall Street crash of 1929. This was an era of glitz, glam and luxury and the birth of the nouveau riche in US society. The movie ste showed a great appreciation of art deco and would have been any interior designer's delight.

In the houses the old and new styles meet together forming an amazing combination of heavy, richly decorated tables and chairs with ornaments in pewter, striped big armchairs and ornamented carpets, large rooms full of heavy furniture with little free space  further learnt credence to an impression of comfort and luxury.
