From The Architectural Digest
You have read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. You have sworn you will never forget Carey Mulligan’s face playing Nick Carraway’s should’ve-been girl. Or why Jacklyn Jose should play the role or why Lav Diaz should be directing it with The Bisaya Short Films creators. You have seen the film and now you can’t seem to stop yourself from thinking of making your dream house in, say, Vineyard, Utah.
Vineyard, Utah is the best place to make a Great Gatsby-inspired home because a.) It is the United States first and foremost and b.) it’s secluded and yet modern enough to pull through a good retro Gothic feel. A perfect balance of classic angst and a wardrobe freak kind of personality, that’s what Vineyard, Utah seems to have.
And it also helps that according to the United States Census Bureau, the town has now a total of 6.4 square miles (16.5 km2), of which 4.4 square miles (11.3 km2) is land and 2.0 square miles (5.2 km2), or 31.53%, is water, thank you very much Esquire Wikipedia. With that, you can easily make a house near a river, where Jay Gatsby died. Plus, Vineyard, Utah has a real estate air as vibrant as the lavish houses featured by Architectural Digest about The Great Gatsby film.
Before you get your realtor to buy you a home in Vineyard, Utah, you might want to read the feature post by Architectural Digest. It’s a fun and informative read, especially if you’re looking for inspiration for the home you want Carey Mulligan to be proud of. By the way, Carey Mulligan was born in the United Kingdom and I heard Filipinos all over the world would find it a real fascinating cinematic experience to see him act in a Lav Diaz film.
Anyway, before you can put a magic home in reality in Vineyard, Utah, you might want to consider the template houses available already, such as the houses showcased in Vineyard Shores that are around from $346,011 – $349,516. That may not be a Jay Gatsby budget, but that certainly would put people like George Wilson at bay.
Next thing you need to do for a Great Gatsby home would be to put all the best art in the world in place. Try as you might, anything pretentious is not good, but if you’re a fun-loving person, why not buy art for the irony of it? Consider books by David Foster Wallace. Find out where Georges Simenon’s hidden notes are and put them in your new house in Vineyard. Watch Bergman films and Bisaya Short Films and go to Flickr and find out the brilliant life-changing works of Michael Wolf and Posporo Maker. Get the art advice of the best in the market, like the graphic artists in Dunked.com. After that, relax and revel in the art you made for yourself in your humble Vineyard, Utah home.
