Travel in a Wes Anderson Colour Palette

colour, travel, photography, architectureI AM AComment

As avid travellers, we always love to plan our next destination of travel. Thru traveling, it brings us lots of new knowledge, inspirations and memories. We love to travel like a local, learn the lingo, enjoy local food, and bathe in the culture.

Meet our latest crush: Accidentally Wes Anderson, a website and Instagram account @AccidentallyWesAnderson that hosts pictures from many beautiful travel destinations in a Wes Anderson kind of quirky, colour palette and theme. Many of the pictures collated could just be that scene in a Wes Anderson movie in breathtaking locations from Argentina, North Korea, Taiwan, India, to of course London and Wales! That super cute pastel pink museum Seurasaari Open-Air Museum in Helsinki, oh hello! You are on our bucket list!

In addition to the beautiful destinations that were photographed by it’s community of travellers from around the world - pictures include buildings, architecture to landscapes, but, this site / instagram account does more than that. The account also captures the cute transportation, from cable cars (Yes very Wes Anderson), train cabins, and also local gems and communal artefacts from phone boxes, fun words and text on buildings, parks, post boxes and ticket counters. Our kind of encounter - in fact this site is our current daydream destination. The colours captured from hues of pastels, pinks, to blues and greens, hints of red, burst of yellow. That’s what we call dreamy!

If you have any pictures from a Wes Anderson-esque holiday, you can also submit your snaps via this link on their website. Snap snap!

Below are some of our favourite pictures (we actually love them all - it’s possible!).

Bon voyage!

This makes us really happy. Woohoo! For all the Peanuts / Snoopy fans out there we are so glad to know that there will be a Peanuts Hotel opening in Kobe, Japan on the 1st August 2018. According to the website, room and hotel booking will commence on the 9th July at 10am, Japan time. 

Snippets from the Peanuts Hotel instagram account are lovely, fun, clean graphics that will be used in the 18-room hotel which will be spread across 3 different floors, where each floor will hold the theme of "Happy", "Love" and "Imagine". Snoopy, you are so cool, Joe Cool!
