grand budapest hotel baby nursery inspiration

So, have y’all seen anything about Wes Anderson’s new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel?  Chip and I watched the trailer the other night, and we had to watch it again and stop it at every frame just to take in all the gorgeousness.  It’s perfectly beautiful.  I adore all the pinks, reds, and rich purply indigos.  The movie poster is just lovely with that pink confection of a hotel juxtaposed with a breathtaking rugged mountain backdrop, and it’s such fun inspiration for a room.  I was going back and forth between that dresser and this one, but I love the punchiness of that pink.  That beautiful rug is a bit pricey, but this or this or the Minna Rug would be a good substitute for much less!  (And someone needs to snatch up that vintage birth certificate from the ’60’s that is still blank!  Would be so fun in a nursery!)

And, if you haven’t seen it, below are a couple of images, just to give you an idea (from here and here).

Breathtaking, right?  And just look at these colors:

As I was looking around, I also found SF Girl By Bay’s recent post on the movie.  I love her collection of imagery, too!
