On the set of The Great Gatsby5.10.2013 | 1:57 pm


The wait is finally over for Baz Luhrmann’s much anticipated interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1920s novel The Great Gatsby. Celebrated for his signature visual pizzazz, Luhrmann goes the extra mile transporting viewers into the Roaring Twenties by meticulously recreating the experience of lavish and glittering spaces of grandeur.

Period authenticity is on full display in the iconic home of Jay Gatsby. The foyer is appointed with a dramatic curved Calacatta marble stairway, Indiana limestone columns accented with hand-carved cherubs, and an unmistakable gilded gothic rib-vaulted ceiling.

The formal dining room is anchored by a fireplace of Verde Alpi marble, accented with a Honed Crema Marfil marble mantel and mouldings.

Hallways and vestibules are adorned with traditional Victorian York Patterned floors of Turkish Carrara marble with Nero Marquina diamond inserts.

Tobey Maguire speaks exclusively with Architectural Digest on the experience of his collaboration with Baz Luhrmann and production and costume designer Catherine Martin. http://bit.ly/10wKwBQ
