…”Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?”

Have you seen Tim Burtons magical take on the 19th century Lewis Carroll’s, Alice in Wonderland.?

Such wonderful costumes, make up, visual and art direction, but the colours are just so vibrant, one of the colours I focused on was Aquamarine and tones of it.

… A pale tint of Spring  – tonal to Cyan, a calming,relaxing colour.(Source: Wikipedia).

When you watch movies full of visual resources, what do you see. Do you only ‘watch’ the movie? Do you see and give credit of how much screen and visual work has gone into the making of the movie? Do you think ‘wow, look at all those special effects’? Starting with one focus point: being colour, can lead into new inspirations. Where do you get your inspirations?

One colour Aquamarine and it takes flight on a journey of inspirational thought, it makes me think of blue oceans, and cooling breezes. Summer vacations and blue cacao cocktails…

Isn’t it amazing how you see something and it triggers a thousand thoughts.

Where do you find inspiration?

I’d love you hear your thoughts or maybe share your links.

  1. Some of my favorite movies are so visual – love when they use a specific color to carry the theme through! Love your post,

  2. I love this remake of Alice in Wonderland. What a great selection of inspiring images you’ve put together! Love that drink at the end. I was never much of a blue person until this year, now I have a blue accent wall in my LR and LOVE it!

  3. I think I love this ticket to wonderland and I believe I love this blue. Those colored eggs look amazing and those chairs are beautiful. I just adore your palettes..
