Film Inspiration: Amelie

Film Inspiration: Amelie

Amelie is one of my favorite films. It has the right amount of whimsy and humor, and Audrey Tatou injects the title character with charm. In the film, the title character lives and works in Paris creating a world of her own by influencing the lives of those around her without their knowledge.

Red is the color of the film. Amelie wears it in nearly every scene, and it is peppered throughout with props and set design.

While Amelie connects others around her, she remains isolated. Her apartment is a key component to that. With lush fabrics and patterns her home is a mix of Victoriana and a little Mid Century (check out those kitchen chairs). Texture and fabric are also key here, her lamps have fabric and fringe shades and her upholstery is an ornate brocade.

Her quirkiness is shown through the paintings she chooses to hang around her bed, including a portrait of a goose and a dog.
