Glitz and Glamour: Add 1920s style at home

We're counting down the hours until the release of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby film and not just because of the flapper dresses and the Charleston, or Leonardo DiCaprio and the fabulous flame-haired Isla Fisher of course. We also can't wait to take a look at the set and styling of the film's interior design and décor. We've already seen some stills which feature glossy furnishings and decadent styling all with a dash of Hollywood's over-the-top splendour. To tie you over before the big release, we've found some fabulous pieces at ACHICA this week that will ensure you get The Great Gatsby look at home...

No 1920s living room would be complete without a statement chandelier. Get the look with try this ceiling pendant from Oaks lighting. Channelling the Parisian Art Deco style seen in the film, the pendant comes with optical-style prisms arranged in an even ring, which hang perfectly from a shiny, silver chrome frame.

Plush and sumptuous silk bedding should adorn the bed in any glamourous 1920s-style home and this 100% mulberry silk bed linen from belledorm is simply divine. It's a subtle way to work a monochrome scheme and add to it an antique mirror, such as the one below from Reflections, and some crystal table lamps, and you’ve got a Great Gatsby inspired look in the making.



These black and white finished pieces from London’s flocking king Johnny Egg are also just the thing for a Gatsby inspired home. Shiny and glossy in satin lacquer they come with straight lines and curved cabriole legs. The pink flocked interior brings the piece bang up-to-date.

A piece of art inspired by the era is always a good way of making a statement. This Queen print from Maison Privee features the iconic bob cut of the era and a crystal jewelled headband, plenty of which you'll see in the film.

The final touch for 1920s inspired styling is to add lots of silver in lavish candelabras such as these from Culinary Concepts, as well as vases overflowing with hydrangea blossoms. You can drape crystals or pearls over them for the final touch and they will help create a dramatic mood for any evening soiree.
