Re-create the Wes Anderson movie set look!

I’m really enjoying the Wes Anderson trend on social media right now, and seeing everyones Reels, there’s been so many great ones! I am such a huge fan of his work. My favourite movies are The French Dispatch, The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums. Actually, scrap that, I LOVE them all!

His whimsical aesthetic and elaborate and saturated use of colour is so so mesmerising, and his sense of nostalgia is just beautiful!

I like to think that our home looks like one big Wes Anderson movie set 🙂 The pop pastel colours and palettes, the quirky styling, the retro telephones, the chequerboard prints, the vintage furniture, and the vivid wallpapers.

How I design my room schemes

People often ask me on Instagram, how do you create your schemes? Well for me it’s all about the aesthetic and how a room makes you feel, I don’t get too hung up on what a room should have in it or follow any specific design rules as such. I want each of my rooms to tells it’s own story. I treat each space like a blank canvas, as if I am creating a painting and I give it a theme. Then I create an aesthetic and palette based on this.

I sketch out my designs, create a palette, block in my colours, then add all of the little elements and details. I spend a lot of time curating my interior spaces, carefully styling them to make sure that everything is in the right place and there’s a sense of harmony.

I always aim to create impactful spaces that are packed full of joy and personality, and make you feel uplifted as you enter. Each room is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Well, I like to think so anyway! 🙂
