And you're going to want to visit ALL of these Instagrammable spots
Words by Lexxi Davis
If you’re anything like us, you’ll appreciate the clean lines and candy colours of Wes Anderson’s movie sets.
From the pretty millennial pink of the Grand Budapest Hotel, to the iconic turquoise blue and vermillion orange of the Life Aquatic uniforms and the striking yellow from the short Hotel Chevalier that Natalie Portman stars in, we all love the saturated stills from these films that give us major home and style inspiration.
While we’re still getting over the fact that Instagram removed its GIF feature , this Instagram account called Accidentally Wes Anderson, complies places from around the world that look like they’ve been plucked right out of a movie mood board. Proving that Mr Anderson takes inspiration from the real world.
In their own words they say they are ‘A lookbook for avid travelers and aspiring adventurers – a taste of the unending opportunities to experience distinctive design and unexpected narratives. Come along as we add to our bucket list of daydream destinations and discover what’s behind these beautiful facades.’
With thousands of adventurers having already contributed to this creative collaboration, you can too by sending an image via the Accidentally Wes Anderson site, or using the hashtag on Instagram. Which is maybe our second favourite thing to happen to our Instgram led lives this week, the other being that you can now shop straight from Instagram.
And while some buildings are as far flung as New Zealand, there are so many places close to home too, with loads of UK spots you probably never knew existed.
Some of them will have you looking twice to see if they are in fact a movie still, like this – a motel chalet in Canada OR a scene from Moonrise Kingdom?
We don’t know about you, but this has given us our new wanderlust list to tick off. First stop, Woolwich Town Hall?
