The main thing I’ve noticed in Wes Anderson interiors is Collections. Every character or room has a collection of some sort. Hand drawings, books, computer equipment, taxidermy, and even color. Each room is ultra rich and saturated with a focus. I love Margot’s room of family portraits personally.
My advice to give your room a simple nod to the legendary director Wes Anderson, find something that tickles your funny bone and make a little collection of it. Large scale collections might be a little cumbersome, so minimize it for an even more amusing collection. My next collection is going to be “Z”s for my last name. I think the fun part will be finding them amongst the adventures of life. I also want a little corner of antlers and animal busts. To get my giggles, I’m going to look for them in fun colors or paint them myself. I saw a recent post on younghouselove.com where the took plain white antlers and dipped the tips in bright colored paint.
Now when I said that one of the collections in a Wes Anderson room was color, I meant just that. It’s red walls, with rich red velvet chairs, a red piano, a mom in a red skirt, red area rugs, etc. In this make believe world, it works. I’m not as big of a fan of it in the day to day world. I want a little bit of mix up in my colors and patterns. Just a personal preference. I am and will always be a fan of Wes Anderson and how his sets, costumes, and cinematography makes me feel. Sometimes a problem you think you have really isn’t that catastrophic. And when you look back at it in the future, will your reaction be as amusing as a Wes Anderson characters’?
Hope you had a good read. Until next time!
