Celebrating Spring with pastel colours in film sets

wes-anderson-budapest-hotel-pastel-colours-film-sets

To celebrate the joys of Spring we take a look at the very specific pastel colour palette that has become synonymous with this time of year – symbolizing positivity and new life. Spring is also the perfect time for a redecoration project so let’s take some inspiration from our favourite pastel coloured film sets.

Pastel Green

Pastel green reminds us of new growth, green grass and if you’re a film fanatic – the walls of the children’s party in The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The Grand Budapest Hotel. This pastel room for the children’s birthday party is a typical Wes Anderson colour palette and oozes retro-cool. Just check out that pistachio green wall.

Pastel Pinks

Pastel pinks symbolize joy, blossom, fresh beginnings and playfulness – and if you’re a film and furniture fan – the film set of Hail Caeser!, Napoleon Solo’s bathroom carpet in the original 60s Man From Uncle episode The Spy With My Face (1965), the perfect pink Saarinen Womb chairs in Down With Love and of course, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
