Visually Satisfying Project Shares the Color Palettes of Iconic Film Scenes

Twitter account Cinema Palettes takes screenshots from classic films and translates them to ten-part color palettes. Though based on a momentary still, each spectrum of shades seems to encapsulate its movie's overall mood: the somber, otherworldly blues of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the dreamlike pinks and purples of The Grand Budapest Hotel, the cloyingly pretty pastels of Edward Scissorhands, and the earthly, organic greens and browns of Atonement, for example.

The collection ranges from Mary Poppins to Star Wars, catering to all cinematic tastes. Find your favorite film below and see whether the color scheme suits your style—if so, you can now paint your home or redesign your wardrobe with your movie of choice as your hue inspiration.
