    Flipping through the recently released coffee-table book The Wes Anderson Collection, we were struck by an intense desire to move right into one of the director’s magical movie sets. After all, who wouldn’t want to live in Gwyneth’s brownstone bedroom in The Royal Tenenbaums, with its so-retro princess phone and 1970s lighted mirror, or spend summers in residence at Moonrise Kingdom’s sweet New England cottage, circa 1960? And, as for The Grand Budapest Hotel (opening March 7), we’re most definitely ready to check in.

    But, it's one thing to be inspired by those spaces and quite another to actually deck out your apartment to mirror them. Is it even possible to bring that style of quirkiness into your home — without feeling like you're an extra on a Hollywood set? As a matter of fact, yes. And, for the how-to guide, we turned to Kris Moran, a set decorator and prop master whose film credits include such Anderson classics as The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, and Moonrise Kingdom. Moran also takes on the occasional decorating job, and she's furnished homes for director Noah Baumbach and actor Bill Murray. (And, we can't pretend we're not completely delighted by the idea that those two Anderson collaborators live in homes inspired by some of their best work.)

    Ahead, 10 clever tricks for transforming your place into a curio-filled, color-saturated fantasy.
