If you're like us, chances are you've got Gatsby fever! Between the crystals, gilded furniture, and pearly white interiors, this film has a visual power that's hard to deny. Set to kick off Cannes Film Festival today, we're celebrating by counting down our favorite deco-driven moments from The Great Gatsby set design and showing you our picks for getting the look at home.
What we know today as the iconic shift dress was originally designed by the late Lilly Pulitzer as a way to keep cool while working her Palm Beach juice stand. Pulitzer, who passed away on April 7, proved that bold patterns and classic silhouettes were a successful fashion formula. Inspired by famous fans like First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, we're channeling her Palm Beach aesthetic — home style. Shop the Pulitzer-inspired decor pieces below to add a punch of tropical prep to your pad!
- Calliope Lantern ($1,850): though it's offered in a range of colors, we think the dainty scalloped frame is well-suited for baby blue.
- Darlington Chairs ($475 for a set of two): a coat of water-based, eco-friendly paint in Pepto-pink gives these rattan stunners modern appeal.
- D. Porthault's Demoiselles Bedding (price upon request): enjoy perennial Spring (in the form of printed cotton percale!).
- Blue and White Painted Porcelain Vase ($42): perfectly stunning with or without flowers, this offers a spin on the traditional ginger jar.
- 3 Piece Cake Plate Set ($98, originally $140): spread these across a table or stack to preserve room for more sweets!
- Dream Nest Sham ($50): its quilted texture and vibrant palette are enough to perk up any bed or sofa.
- Foo Dogs ($58 for a set of two): these chinoiserie staples aren't the least bit stuffy, thanks to their bold tangerine hue.
- X Bench in Venice Peacock ($645): this versatile piece can be used as a side table or extra seating in a pinch.
- Indoor Outdoor Mirrored Planter ($748): ferns have never looked so glamorous!

Colorful glass vessels were used a lot in '60s interiors. We saw these navy-blue beauties in Pete and Trudy Campbell's home in season five and were tickled to find these aquamarine Sultan Canisters ($30 each) at Z Gallerie. We're tempted to display a colorful collection of them like Jonathan Adler did at the Parker Palm Springs.

MARCH, a San Francisco home goods store, merges airy modernism with utilitarian craftsmanship for a space that has local foodies and designophiles in a tizzy. The lovely wares for the kitchen, pantry, and table, some of which are created exclusively for MARCH, aren't the only things this space sells. Even more covetable is the irresistible aesthetic. Flooded in natural light and covered in the brightest white from floor to ceiling, items like handcrafted ceramics by Victoria Morris meld with Brooklyn Copper Cookware, bespoke butcher block tables with Farrow & Ball-painted legs, and table linens from Boxwood Linens, to sell a lifestyle instead of just products. Take a tour of MARCH's inspiring space, and get tips on how to re-create the look in your own home.

This Is 40 star Leslie Mann glowed at the Oscars Sunday night in her coral Andrew Gn dress. Billowing sleeves, a plunging beaded neckline, and a vibrant but earthy shade gave the dress a sultry '70s feel. While a red-carpet-worthy ensemble may be hard to justify, we can always build a case for stealing this modern bohemian look for your home. Our decor equivalent is fit for the kurta-wearing, travel-app-using sophisticate with a weakness for handmade details.
Pillow: We could almost get lost in the hand-stitched labyrinth of this appliquéd pillow ($110).
Chandelier: A hemp-wrapped frame lends hippie cred to this elegant pendant ($4,370).
Rug: Treat your tootsies to this soft, flat-weave dhurrie ($48) for the bathroom.
Magnifying glass: Sure, glasses are more practical, but this beaded beauty ($20) is much more fun!
Nicole Richie has never been one to shy away from piling on the jewels, so why would she leave her baubles behind when sitting courtside at a Lakers game at Staples Center? For the sporty occasion, Nicole wore a loose-fitting black blouse, then tons of jewelry that took center stage. A black-beaded rosary and gold chain necklace dressed her neck, rhinestone bangles jazzed her left arm, and chunky cocktail rings dazzled her fingers. If you're also feeling Nicole's courtside bling, click on the pieces above to get the look.
