lately, ...i've been finding myself feeling restless, or what my husband would call having an, "itchy heart" concerning the wall colors in our home...which really stinks considering that we've finally almost completed painting our entire home after two long years of remodeling...i guess it's possible that two years ago i was a different person than i am now, and that my design aesthetic is always evolving...i actually may just have to accept the fact that i will forever be painting and re-painting our walls because as soon as i think im "done" with a room, i feel restless again and find myself re-designing a perfectly fine space, switching out furniture, re-arranging furniture, and now...re-painting walls...i'm pretty sure it's one of the downfalls of loving interior design...this incessant need to be changing up one's home...which brings me to this post's inspo..the grand budapest hotel by wes anderson...
it's a well known fact that wes anderson is a creative genius and his movies are works of art..i have been wanting to see the grand budapest hotel for quite some time now, but have only managed to see the beginning portion so far, but from what i recall from the little i saw, it was a total eyeball orgasm...his use of the different camera lenses and angles, and his use of color combinations immerse you into a different world....a visually stunning and magical world...
i was really drawn to the color combinations of this movie, especially the muted pastelly combinations..the light greens, pinks, purples, blues and yellows...and i love the way the colors and scenes create a sophisticated aesthetic, even though they could easily read the opposite anywhere else...and i think one way to make sure that doesn't happen is to incorporate classic architectural elements...and other things to help the space feel more "grown up"...
i'm really loving this minty-green color...and it is high on my list right now as a possible contender...i love how cheerful it is, and how it can bring balance to an otherwise serious space...
this is a pinterest fav,,,a great example of achieving the muted pastelly combos, but through the furnishings and accessories vs. on the walls...
these are more of the movie's moodier/darker color combos...
love how this color combo incorporates both the pastels and the darker shades...

our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. it is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us...we are all meant to shine...and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
