To inaugurate the release of the Great Gatsby, here is my Art Deco How-To video for my San Francisco Chronicle Series called Real Estate Real Simple. Art Deco is one of my all time eras in design, the decadence the glitz and glamour! The Great Gatsy is also one of my favorite books (the capitalist commentary, haves and the have-nots, the laissez-faire!). The newly released Great Gatsby film, starring Leo Dicaprio & Tobey Maguire, is a visual homage to this fabulous period of art and design. Folks, I could watch the film with the sound off! I was visually drowning in all the details, costumes, architecture. Wow! My only disappointment was that the film left out the homoeroticism between Nick Carraway and Gatsby (I recall that gay undertones too when I read it in high school...I thought it was hormones, but maybe not...at least per Salon Magazine)
