Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums came out in 2001, but almost 20 years later, we can still see the film’s visuals clearly. There’s Ben Stiller’s character and sons in their red tracksuits, Gwyneth Paltrow’s fur coat, Owen Wilson’s whole cowboy thing… and of course the lush set design, marked by colorful, heavily decorated walls. If you’re still captivated by the Wes Anderson aesthetic, it’s not too late to bring it home. A peel-and-stick version of the zebra-print wallpaper from Margot Tenenbaum’s (Gwyneth Paltrow) bedroom is now available for purchase.

The original wallpaper from the film was developed by Scalamandré, a luxury interior design brand. People notes that it was actually created well before The Royal Tenenbaums came out, in the 1940s for an Italian restaurant in New York called Gino’s, where celebrities including Frank Sinatra reportedly hung out.

The zebra design has been available through Scalamandré as a traditional wallpaper, but at a less-than-accessible price. Now, through a collaboration between Scalamandré and home decor brand The Inside, it’s available as a peel-and-stick wallpaper at $69 per 18-inch-wide, 144-inch-long roll. Use it for a whole room or just as an accent. The peel-and-stick format means you don’t need glue, and it’s possible to go DIY. When you’re ready to remove it, The Inside promises it comes off without sticky residue.

The zebra wallpaper comes in three colors. For those who really want to replicate Margot’s style, coral comes closest. Yellow has a cheerful storybook feel, and the simple palette of the gray keeps the focus on the zebras.

For those who want to go full Royal Tenenbaums and make all your walls bold, The Inside sells the same peel-and-stick wallpaper in a variety of prints, including stripes, tile-like mosaic, dense florals, large-scale banana and palm leaves, and a range of abstracts.
