Falling headfirst into the captivating world of the wealthy. The audience experiences the 1920s through the eyes of Nick Carraway as he arrives in New York City. The film captures the frenzy of movement and the feeling of freedom that dominated the roaring twenties. Like Nick, we are drawn in by the luxurious lifestyle created in a realm of unrestrained decadence and glamour in a postwar world.

Rich hues like red, brown, and gold are seen throughout the entire movie highlighting the glamour and wealth of the Gatsby’s lifestyle. For those who want to add a little bit of glitz and glamour to their life. Redecorating your home with these tones inspired by The Great Gatsby’s film home decor will no doubt add a decadent touch to your home. But be careful!  When matched by itself, reds, browns, and golds can become too overwhelming. It’s best to use them as an accent color paired with either a soft neutral such as beige or a warm yellow.

Stepping into the 1930’s we see the hotel at the height of its glory in 1932.  The sensuality is reflected through the liberal use of delicate pinks and whites. The hotel’s staff are dressed in a deep, rich purple highlighted with a true red that mirrors the passion of the staff and the affluence of the hotel.

As the hotel ages, the color story starts to change with it, transitioning from vibrant youthful shades to muted yellows and browns. Reflecting a different aesthetic but the same an inviting setting with homely air – matching the subdued friendliness of the older Mustafa.
