Get the Look: Amelie's Bedroom

Get the Look: Amelie's Bedroom

Amélie Poulain took not only France but the world by storm. We were all swept away by her quirky French je ne sais quoi, awkward naïveté, and childlike demeanor. Of course, the movie Amélie also made an impression from an artistic standpoint. From the scenery and the tunes to the coloring and the editing, I was encapsulated in Amélie's fantastical world in every sense. The sets, particularly her apartment, were as captivating as the innocent girl, and I've always been intrigued by her bedroom. So, when a Su Casa member inquired about her comforter, I decided I'd attempt to show you how to get the look of the room. To hear my thoughts,

.

To begin, you must set the stage with a metallic rouge wallpaper like Amelie's, and paint your wainscoting to match. The Graham & Brown Serenity Wallpaper ($60/bolt) shares a gold-on-red pattern with Oriental charm and a delicate, starry design.

You can find her prints by Michael Sowa, the Fowl With Pearls ($14.99) and Filmhound ($14.99), at Art.com, and have them hung in unmatching frames for the same peculiar, offbeat look.

As for the comforter, which Su Casa member eunyee9 asked about, I couldn't track the exact design. But, I think the Dream Silk Comforter ($349), with its peachy champagne color, interesting quilting pattern, and plush heft is a good match.

Casasugar, I'd love to see a "Get-the-Look" feature for the rest of Amelie's apartment--especially her great living room. She had a beautiful red sofa and set of chairs, if I remember correctly, and her kitchen was pretty cute too!

you know, at the time I was really surprised that Amelie's style (both the character and the film) weren't more explicitly influential. I know her sense of dress inspired me to become a little bit more quirky and colourful, and yes her flat is also a real gem, so thank you CasaSugar!

I like the Michael Sowa prints, but my favorite object in Amélie's bedroom is the pig lamp.

Anyone else struck by that optical illusion above -- When you scroll down the page, the Graham and Brown Serenity wallpaper circles appear to rotate, like interlocking gears -- or is just me?
