Inspiration from NYC – Great Gatsby Decor


Films are often the inspiration for societies’ trends in fashion, interiors, language and lifestyle. The classic novel The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald is no exception. The Roaring 20’s and the Jazz era was a time of parties, design renaissance and new wealth. The glamorous Plaza Hotel is a grand building which opened in 1907 ready for the dazzling events which were held in the building.

The hotel has been meticulously renovated recently and re-opened to the delight of all who hold this hotel in high regard. There is a suite which was designed to pay homage to Fitzgerald, a regular patron with his wife Zelda. Designer Catherin Martin was procured to design the suite which is of course named The Fitzgerald Suite. It is dramatic and evokes the history of the time.
