Living in Great Gatsby!

Inspired by my post at Apartment 34 on Live Here, Decorate This- I went a fictional route and dreamt of living in Gatsby's world.



I would love to dance in that gilded ballroom- the grandeur and glamour of the world of the Great Gatsby...  I cannot wait for the newest version by Baz Luhrmann and while I wait, I dream of living in it- with a modern twist.

Look for a fashion inspired Gatsby board soon! (I am kind of, slightly, totally obsessed with the upcoming Gatsby movie- Baz, Leonardo DiCaprio, F. Scott Fitzgerald... Need I say more!!)

Sigh, it is delayed until May 2013 :( It is killing me!

  2. Hmm. Too bad about it being delayed because I'm curious to see how badly they've mangled F. Scott's work (again). It's my favorite piece of literature (F. Scott Fitzgerald is my all time favorite author) and this version seems so...not Gatsby. I like the 2000 version with Paul Rudd and Mira Sorvino, though!

    1. I will say I did not like the hip hop vibe in the preview, but I guess it captures the excess.

      I am a huge Baz fan, I danced to Moulin Rouge songs at my wedding, so I like his very individual and somewhat weird eye on things.
      So the idea of him retelling it is exciting to me, I do not expect it to be like the book, but instead a wild take on it? Baz goes so overboard- which is great for a book like The Great Gatsby.

      Im a fan too, my parents named all our dogs after characters from the novel, so I HAD to like the book, lol.

  3. F. Scott Fitzgerald was one of the true literary masters of the English language. Every word he wrote was a gem. I actually never cared for the Great Gatsby. I loved his short stories like Bernice Bobs Her Hair, and his novel This Side of Paradise. He truly captured the Jazz Age.
