get the look: moonrise kingdom

We saw Moonrise Kingdom over the weekend, and it was wonderful – a quirky, sweet story with details worth pondering.  I couldn’t help but fall in love with the cozy house at Summer’s End on New Penzance Island, and I only wish they had panned a little slower through all the rooms at the beginning so I could have absorbed more of it.  And how amazing were the scout tents?  I wouldn’t mind having one of those myself for little backyard retreats.  I won’t even get into the fantastic wardrobe used in the movie – there is just too much to mention!  Below are a few movie stills (doesn’t the top left photo look like a Norman Rockwell painting? found here).

Here is my attempt at recreating the feel of the house into a nursery.  I think the mural in that downstairs room is divine, so I went with wallpaper for the backdrop:

If you find the wallpaper intimidating, or a bit out of price range, this collection would look charming on a neutral (like Benjamin Moore’s Linen White) with a bolder choice for the curtains – something similar to the nautical showstoppers behind Suzy’s window seat above.
