have you seen this wonderful website, wes anderson palettes


we are going to see wes anderson’s new movie, the grand budapest hotel this week and i am so excited. i have always been interested in set design and am feeling so inspired by the imagery and palettes in this film. anderson always creates incredible worlds within his stories (and he loves symmetry, like me.) apparently the film is set in a fictional country, zubrowka, so he literally created his own world in this case. the film sets were created in  former german department store! there is always a consistent color story in his films – some create nostalgia, some create whimsy, all of them surreal – a world more colorful than the real world. the colors of the interiors are also reminiscent of spring and the pastel pastries in the film…

  1. love this post madeline! i am going to see grand budapest this week as well and completely agree with you about anderson’s eye for color and symmetry. it blows my mind that nearly every single shot in his films look like they could be photographs in a magazine. and these palettes…gorgeous!


  2. I have not gone to see the move yet, but it is on my list! I honestly feel like I watch Wes Anderson’s movies almost just for the set designs, they are always so creative and beautiful. I love the color palette of the images above, and how you picked out specific colors on the side!
