great gifts: the wes anderson collection

By: Sara Cation
The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz, $45, Indigo. Whenever people ask me about my favourite movie interiors, The Royal Tenenbaums comes to mind. Not because it’s a shining example of timeless and stunning decor – it’s not. But because it’s a home full of tales to tell, curated with mementos important to every family member and absolutely brimming with personality. From the pink walls paired with dark trim throughout to the red zebra wallpaper in Margot’s room to young Richie’s gallery of portraits in the ballroom, I’m drawn in to every moment, every vignette; I love the quirk and colour.     [caption id="attachment_19083" align="aligncenter" width="460" caption="the pink ballrooom in the royal tenenbaums"] [/caption] [caption id="attachment_19081" align="aligncenter" width="460" caption="richie tenenbaum's portrait collection (mostly of margot)"] [/caption] [caption id="attachment_19084" align="aligncenter" width="460" caption="the wallpaper in margot's room"] [/caption] Thus The Wes Anderson Collection coffee table book is predictably at the top of my wish list this Christmas. Featuring an extensive collection of previously unpublished photos and artwork as well as a book-length interview with Wes Anderson by author Matt Zoller Seitz, the book is mandatory for any die-hard Anderson fan, but recommended for anyone else drawn into that “melancholy and playful, wise and childish” world of Wes Anderson. (Which is kind of where I want to live… How about you?)
