1. Simply put, Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai makes beautiful movies. In the Mood for Love (2000) is my favorite and no exception. The actors and their clothes are impeccable, and the interiors are colorful and clever. The "wallpaper" in the first image is Marimekko's "Appelsiini" fabric.
2. Any talk of colorful interiors in movies has to include Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964). Not only are the eponymous parapluies candy-colored, but almost every wall is vibrant pink, blue, or orange. Director Jacques Demy's incorporation of boldly colored wallpaper is pretty much unparalleled.
3. Pedro Almodóvar pays great attention to his female characters and his interiors, both of which tend to be colorful. All About My Mother (1999) is no exception.
5. In high school I was pretty obsessed with the BBC's 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (technically a miniseries). If you can see past Mr. Darcy, you'll notice how the elegant interiors feature wallpaper and the color green.
7. While a club isn't exactly a house, the titular cabaret in Moulin Rouge! (2001) functions as a home for Nicole Kidman's character. Appropriately, it is mostly red.
8. It has been a long time since I watched The King and I (1956), but check out that marigold palace!
