His rationale (not that I needed convincing) was what has had me laughing for weeks and the prompt for writing this post. But I’m showing you around our living room so you can decide, but also so I can help you figure out how to bring a little more Disney into your own décor.
We are both huge Disney fans and love filling our home with memories from the Happiest Place on Earth.
To do so, we have mixed all kinds of things: childhood momentos, collectibles, and some unique art pieces.
One of the first things we purchased together as a couple was a collection of framed prints for Disneyland’s 50th anniversary. The collection was able with just the prints, but we opted for the themed frames that match each of Disneyland’s diverse lands.
When purchasing art as an investment, make sure you’re checking the number of pieces in the run. It helps justify the cost of our Disney art addiction when you consider our kids will be cherishing these after we’re gone.
Living so close to the magic kingdom, it’s our go-to for family fun but also date nights.
Use the Disney Photopass Photographers to capture your favorite vacation photos and display them when you get home. They’ve got cute pre-designed Disney themed pages that will make it so easy. Just as we have purchased pieces of art that are a little more costly, we also happily display the more every day items from our Disney vacations.
Because we share this space with three princesses, I want my daughters to have a stake in our home’s aesthetic. I nabbed a cheap wooden box from a swap meet and painted it to match an accent wall in our home. Right now we’ve got an assortment featuring Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Book displayed using frames like these.
My mother-in-law is a wonderful artist and obliges all of my “Now can you paint a family portrait, but we all want to be birds from the Enchanted Tiki Room” requests. My kids also create a ton of art and we rotate it out on a super simple shelf I nabbed from Target. Although their interests, favorite princesses, and movie selections are different than mine we all share a love for the mouse.
Check your local thrift store or swap meet for some unique, vintage pieces. There are some things in our home that aren’t actually commissioned Disney pieces, but have the right feel for our living room. When my parents remodeled their bathroom, I made sure to grab the gold mirror that hung inside. It’s not Disney, but reminds me of the mirror belonging to the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
