in colours, movies 2 comments
It’s a fun-filled movie with great actors and such a delightful, whimsical and magical toy store. But of course, one of my favourite parts was when Mr Magorium (Dustin Hoffman) gets admitted into hospital. I love the yellow and white hospital scenes!
I love that there is only really one shade of yellow and it’s all in happy gloss. Happy, happy gloss yellow. The only one other shade is the pale yellow sheets and linen.
Plenty of whites, yellow and steel.
I love that yellow wooden stool. So funky, but such simple lines. When we have a kitchen with those needs, I might do the same!
The night time at the hospital room was as beautiful as day time. Glow in the dark stickers had been glued onto every thing in the room, including the ceiling. The effect for Mr Magorium was spectacular.
(My husband’s childhood room had the same thing on the ceiling and it was really quite special. My father in law has since painted the room but said it’s darn difficult to get these stars off!)
What a great place to have happy yellow and the clean white. Hospitals need to think more about the design of their space and the mood they set. It was clean, happy… but I realise, the clean, clean white at a hospital with all those patients, equipment and visitors would be quite hard to maintain. (Plus, people like me would find reason to come to such a beautifully planned space!)
Of course, it takes ALOT of discipline keeping it visually striking. No other colour except white and yellow of the same shade existed in that space without deliberate thought: the black and white polkadot of Mr Magorium’s tie, the denim blue of Molly Mahoney and the brilliant blue t-shirt of Eric Applebaum. That kind of discipline might be perhaps-do-able if only one person lived in the space… but impossible with a family with very distinct tastes.
