Moodboard Monday: The Great Gatsby

Welcome to another Moodboard Monday feature! I do love this time of the fortnight. This time we’re using the title, The Great Gatsby and thinking about opulence, luxurious fabrics lavish parties, rich dark colours and romance. It’s a theme which fits quite nicely with a style that’s everywhere this season, called Salvage or Authentic, and features lots of recycled and reclaimed pieces that have a very natural feel.

And so over to my Moodboard for this week: The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby


I’m going to be perfectly honest and say I found this one very tricky this week. Mummylish and I came up with the concept and theme but then I found inspiration quite lacking! However, I am very pleased with the end result. I was trying to aim for a rich look in both the textures and the colours and I think I’ve managed that. I love the snuggly throws and cushions, perfect for a cold night in front of the fire. But to really give it that 1920’s opulent feel I’ve added in the sparkle candle holders and accessories. For me, the finished Moodboard could inspire a whole room of decadent decor and luxurious living; quite like that experienced by Gatsby himself.

Bloggers and designers why not join up with us. You can follow the theme if you want inspiration, or you can create something completely different. The rules are below, and don’t forget to grab the Moodboard Monday badge from the sidebar and display it in your own post!
