Description

Once I found out that we were having a little boy I knew that I wanted to combine the whimsy of vintage Disney with the modern look of chevron and stripes. My color palate was from Sherwin Williams. The blue is Respite and the gray used on the stripe wall is Pussywillow

Design Inspiration

Vintage Disney sports movie posters from the 1940's and the movie Dumbo. I wanted to keep the room feeling light and airy by using a white furniture and finding a blue that reminded me of a clear sky

Decorating Style

Vintage with a mix of modern

Project Details

I found the vintage movie posters on ebay.com from the seller zdposter  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Working-for-peanuts-Donald-Duck-Disney-cartoon-poster-print-A46-/321035307449?pt=Art_Posters&hash=item4abf3209b9 The chevron rug came from overstock.com http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Chevron-Dhurrie-Blue-Ivory-Wool-Rug-6-Square/7026018/product.html?CID=214117   The flying dumbo in the corner of the room is from ebay as well. I have yet to see another one like it. The Dumbo lamp was made by the Disneystore and purchased on ebay as it is no longer available and made years ago.  To add additional elephant accents I choose Pottery Barn's Taylor Nursery Bedding http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/gray-elephant-nursery-bedding/   The panel drapes are from TJ Maxx The dresser, changing table and crib  are all  from Babies R Us   Status Montrose Dresser http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3997300&searchURL=false Delta Sedona Classic Crib http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10962008&gcsct=0ChMIsJTvrJWEtAIVkJHmCh0XKgAAEAE   Delta Sedona Changing Table http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10962007&prodFindSrc=prodCrossSell Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse Ceiling Fan Pulls from amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049W7TZ4/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005FHXHOE/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_

Favorite Items

It is hard to narrow it down but I would have to say the flying Dumbo hanging from the ceiling.

Advice

Ebay is a great way to find unique pieces that you never knew existed. I liked to use the ebay app on my phone so that I could search regularly and to make sure I never lost out on a bid!

    Paula, you did a great job! I love the Dumbos and the baby name on the wall. Nice touch.

    The colors you used give the room a very soothing effect. And oh, those vintage Walt Disney movie posters are really awesome. I like the Dumbo lamp, too.
