Want to decorate your bedroom like The Darjeeling Limited train? Need to incorporate some Royal Tenenbaum color schemes in your wardrobe? Well now, there’s a Wes Anderson film color palette that can help you get some inspiration.

Beth Mathews, a graphic designer from Nashville, was able to pull five main colors from six of Anderson’s films, including the newly released Moonrise Kingdom, onto a palette. It’s impressive how easily one can recognize a film and get a good feel of its mood from simply five colors. Mathews points out on her blog that Anderson has been able to create a brand for himself as a filmmaker with a creative eye.

The colors are consistent throughout his films, appearing anywhere from in the walls and furniture to character’s clothing, poster font or overall color balance. Stats for Favorite Filmmaker Shade Charts Trending: Older & Chilly
