Wes Anderson designed luxury-train London, United Kingdom

Filmmaker Wes Anderson is the man. When the man designs a luxury train carriage, there's only one thing to do: buy a ticket on that train, wherever it's headed.

The train appears to have come straight from the set of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Pastel pink and emerald green dominate the colour scheme, with intricate marquetry, art nouveau-style wooden panels and trippy geometric furnishings giving the carriage an elaborate crossover style that sits somewhere between Art Deco and stoner.

It's the famous Belmond British Pullman train, the luxury chugga-chugga-chugga-chugga which operates out of London's Victoria Station. Day trip tickets start at around £400 per person.

Texan Anderson doesn't fly, preferring to catch the train where he can. Combined with his other skills, it means there probably isn't anyone on earth more perfect man to design the interior of a train.

The train, for what it's worth, travels from London to the Kent countryside, and back again. Not that that's important.
