Wes Anderson films (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, etc.) all have a certain, distinct aesthetic: They’re whimsical, awash in color, and filmed in strangely satisfyingly symmetrical shots. Now there’s even a Subreddit called Accidental Wes Anderson, dedicated to sharing meticulous composition in real-life locations that look straight out of an Anderson film. Click through the slideshow to marvel at design symmetry all over the world — from palaces to pastry shops — that are sure to appease even your most OCD impulses.
