With the film version of the Great Gatsby due to be released this year, the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalks were awash with silver screen starlets in homage to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic 1920’s story. The Art Deco trend is a great look for interiors and makes a stylish backdrop for roaring twenties revelry. To create a flapper girl kitchen, think feather ruffles, black bead trims and a subtle colour palette of black, chrome and champagne silver. This is the era of decadence, so mix up the textures and look for glamorous details. High-gloss surfaces and shiny glass mosaic tiles add to the polished look. Add a theatrical twist with quirky features like an antique mirror or chandelier lamp. For the finishing touches, treat yourself to some oversized sunglasses and costume jewellery and swan around the house looking fa-bu-lous.
