We love the Oscars at mydeco, it’s one of the biggest accolades any movie can receive. It’s a celebration of a film’s artistic expression and – vitally – a catwalk of dresses to love or hate (Anne Hathaway achieved both though the majority of her eight (!) dresses were stunning).
One of our favourite winners was Alice in Wonderland which received two Academy Awards on Sunday: Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction. With Tim Burton directing it most certainly had a distinctive style and was a visual feast of colour, scale and imagination, especially on the big screen.
Released back in March 2010, Alice in Wonderland was an immediate winner on mydeco with many mydecorati community members dedicating their creative 3D rooms to Lewis Carroll’s magical land of nonsense.

We appreciate creative design in all its forms and our 3D tool showcases this. It is not only a tool used to create virtual homes, it’s a tool used to inspire others, capable of creating any location – even the Oscar’s Kodak Theater in LA.

These 3D rooms and gardens are a brilliant example of what can spring from your imagination using Alice in Wonderland as inspiration. They are a tribute to the art and set directors Robert Stromberg and Karen O’Hara long before they clasped their golden statues at the Oscars. Well researched and budgeted artistic direction in a film is the glue that carries the continuity of the performance and script, making the film a stunning masterpiece.

Although The King’s Speech lost out on the Art Direction category, it triumphed over rival Oscar-dominees The Social Network and The Fighter, scooping four awards. One of which, as you must know by now, was the well deserved Best Actor accolade for Colin Firth’s portrayal of King George VI.
When she was nominated for the Art Direction Oscar, The King’s Speech’s production designer Eve Stewart let mydeco in on some of her set design secrets – detailing how her sets enhanced the believability of the period and the actors’ performances.

These 3D rooms were influenced by the film Gulliver’s Travels – the use of camera angles and enlarged objects have created an effective contrast in height and scale.
