|The Mansion: The floor of the hall has a center medallion in the parquet floor, |
a marquetry monogram made of different wood veneers.
|The Buchanan salon has one of Martin's rug designs, |
Black Pearl, custom colored to match a description in "The Great Gatsby."
The chairs are a Swedish design purchased at Gamla Lan in Australia
and upholstered in Spider, a fabric by Neisha Crosland.

"Gatsby" fans actually can buy it -- for around $17,300.
The quilted walls are upholstery fabric overlaid with metal strips.
