  • Decorating, Disneyland Style

    Like most (if not all) Disneyland fans I have always loved how the park looks and love seeing all the detail that goes into creating such a special place. When my husband and I were searching for ideas on how to decorate our renovated bathroom, he had the unique idea of giving it an Indiana Jones feel since we love the ride and que so much. Even though the end result is more of a Temple of the Forbidden Eye inspiration instead of recreation, it still makes me smile by association.

    View of the bathroom from the door:


    The sink and mirror:


    The shelves above the toilet:


    Shelf next to the shower:


    Wall art from the Indiana Jones movies:







    Since I have always felt I am not alone in my Disneyland addiction here on Mice Chat, I thought I would put out a request to hear (and hopefully see) proof of any of your Disneyland inspired decorating. I would love to hear what your favorite parts of the park are and how you have attempted to bring some of that magic to your home!

    That is gorgeous! Great job! I would love to do something Disney-inspired in my home, I'll have to think on that one.

        I was cleaning the bathroom yesterday and that is what made me think of this new thread idea. Wow, talk about Disney on the brain!

          That is really very nicely done. I saw Indiana Jones and my first thought was some sort of ugly brown rock wall paper.

            Goin around the world...and back to Disneyland!

              That's beautiful! Wonderful job!

              I've wanted to decorate Disneyland-style before, but I've got so many miscellaneous things that it would be quite impossible right now ^_^ Once I have my own apartment or house, I will most definitely try to dress it in theme.

              I do, however, have a Pirates of the Caribbean "map" that I made for a presentation I did at school...it has photos of different things involved in the attraction. I took a poster-sized piece of parchment-colored paper and burned the edged to make it look like a pirate map. It turned out quite nicely...so nicely that I decided to hang it up in my room. I left some room on the map so I could stick a few pictures of Jack Sparrow on it, perhaps Davy Jones and Barbossa as well. I have yet to do these things, but I intend to work on them soon, when my printer starts printing normally again. I'd post a picture, but my camera is incapacitated at the moment ^_^

                :lol: Yeah, we vetoed that idea as well as the Indy-on-a-rope in the shower!

                  Llama - I LOVE it! I'm a huge Indy fan!....and this....this is awsome! Love the wall art

                  May I suggest, adding a old worn leather bound journal....with sketches of temples and maps in the typical Indy fashion?

                  Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
                  Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
                  Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
                  Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
                  Marge: Pink.
                  Homer: D'oh!
                  Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

                    Love the bathroom!

                    I've been toying with the idea of turning our red room (yes, the room is literally RED with sandpapered off patches of white, like fancy paper... the old owners did this, it worked with their Chinese style decorating, but not with anything I own) into an Alice in Wonderland room. Although I'm suddenly inspired to go Piratey instead.

                    Another thought I had (but have not done) would be along the really long wall in our living room, making three stone archways with different views inside, like an Alice hedge maze, ROA, something like that.

                    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                      iit looks really nice
                      i love the towels. i might have gone with some kind of wooden shelf instead though.

                      this is also very topical for me since i'm in the middle of redoing my apartment. i'm doing my hallway in a victorian style, all red á la HM/club 33. hope it turns out the way i'm imagening it..

                        Thank you so much!

                        That is an awesome idea! I actually have an Indy fedora hat from Disneyland that I was going to incorporate but was worried the leather might get damaged with the steam from the shower. I may give the journal a shot though because I think that would add a really neat touch.

                          That is WONDERFUL!!! :bow: :thumbup: :bow: :thumbup:
                          It is not too much or too little, I have seen theme (not just disney) rooms that were so busy you couldn't enjoy any of it.

                            Wow, that looks great! I have just a TON of Disneyland posters around my room, and little paper 3d models of Splash Mountain, The old Harbor sign and the Castle. My bathroom used to have Mickey Mouse everything (shower curtains, toothbrush holders, floor mats, trash cans)

                              It looks fantastic! I was doing a Tiki Room theme in one of my bathrooms. I just need to get the wall art.
