Happy Wednesday everyone! For some reason the last few weeks have been going by so quickly...I can't believe this work week is already half way over! Something even crazier? A week from today I will be starting school again, eek! You can read more about that here in the life update post I did on Monday. If you already checked that post out, then you know that I touched a little on moving out this Fall. I can barely even contain my excitement and have been looking at decor nonstop! So for today's post, I wanted to give you all a little insight into one of the projects that we are hoping to have in our living room - a Wes Anderson gallery wall! Yep, basically my life's dream.
If you are currently reading this and wondering who the heck Wes Anderson is, you need to get yourself in front of the tv and watch his movies! They are honestly masterpieces in my opinion and seriously some of my favorite movies of all time. Jeff first introduced me to Moonrise Kingdom (start with this movie if you are a newbie!) a few years ago and I have been hooked ever since. There are so many things that I love about his movies but I will just name a few 😉 1) his aesthetic...everything is so detailed and so well thought out from the script down to the outfits and color schemes...fun fact, the mom in Moonrise Kingdom wears vintage Lilly Pulitzer throughout the whole movie! 2) the movies focus on the characters and their development and personalities rather than a big plot 3) they are super quirky and refreshing, definitely unlike any other movies I have seen before!
So, as Jeff and I both love Wes Anderson, I had an idea to fill up our living room wall with artwork from our favorite movies. Our current plan is to have everything super neutral (think white couch and black/brown furniture) so I knew that having an extremely colorful gallery wall would be awesome! Jeff and I started looking through some prints on Etsy and so far this is what I have come up with. I knew I wanted everything centered around The Grand Budapest Hotel print and everything else just kind of fell together. I actually found the Sam and Suzy duo first and that's where the idea sparked! I'm not sure if these are all the exact prints we will use, but I love the idea so so much. It's going to be such a unique statement and I freaking adore that it's something that represents films that we both love and enjoy.
All these prints are from Etsy and I have tagged them in order below!
I can't wait to keep posting inspiration board and ideas about decor in the next few months and would love to know if you guys would be interested in seeing that kind of stuff! PS, has anyone heard about the new Wes Anderson film coming out?! There hasn't been much information on it yet but I do know that it's going to be animated and about dogs...lol so not much to go on but I can't wait! PPS, his soundtracks are amazing to listen to when you want calming music...perfect for school coming up. Some of my favorites are "Mr. Moustafa" (Grand Budapest), "Le temps de l'amour" (Moonrise Kingdom), and "Op.7 Cuckoo!" (Moonrise Kingdom). Ok, I'm really done raving about him now,
