Christian Candy 1 : Great Gatsby 0

Watching Baz Luhrmann's the Great Gatsby this weekend [Curzon Mayfair], I couldn't help but be enthralled by the some 42 epic Catherine Martin designed sets. Particularly Jay Gatsby's double-height master bedroom with galleried open wardrobes [below]; taking cues of course from Design Trawler.

Reminding me of Christian Candy's masculine, deco-inspired bedroom in the £199m Belle Epoque in Monaco [pictured], which man about town has the better bedroom? While both make use of reflective fabrics, upholstered walls, high gloss and architectural carpets, Gatsby's galleried wardrobe gets trumped by a palladium trim bed and an elegance that's much more restrained. Judge for yourself below.
