(I wasn't quite sure where exactly this topic would belong, so feel free to movie it if it's glaringly out of place, mods.)
A good friend (and fellow Disney fanatic) of mine recently had his college graduation party at his family's home in San Francisco. While we were there, he showed me the Adventureland-themed bathroom he had decorated for his parents several years ago. It was quite lovely and surprisingly understated in its execution; lots of safari green and khaki hues accented by a rich vine-patterned wallpaper along the bottom half of the wall. Various framed Victorian-style prints of hippos and giraffes and the like adorned the upper walls, with the centerpiece being a framed Jungle Cruise attraction poster. What I loved most was how the room was immediately evocative of the land itself without being overly kitschy or covered in knick-knacks, choosing instead to focus on theme and atmosphere, with one or two identifying focal points to tie it directly in with its theme park inspiration. Seeing that rekindled all the fantasies I used to have as a child of one day creating my very own Disneyland-themed dwelling, and also started me wondering:
Have any of you fabulous MiceChatters ever incorporated a Disneyland-inspired aesthetic into your home design?
Ever done up your dining room to look like a royal banquet hall straight out of Fantasyland? Designed a bedchamber fit for Master Gracey and his 999 spectral guests? Cooked a hearty stew over the open flames of your Frontierland kitchen? Turned to Tomorrowland in order to transform your bathroom into an adventure through liquid space? (...ew) Even if you haven't yet had a chance to act on your Disney-decoration urges, what elaborate plans have you dreamt up on those slow days at work? Post them here! I'd love to see what our own Armchair Imagineers have come up with, from the tiniest Toontown nook to the grandest New Orleans estate!
As for how my personal design preferences run...this is a bit much for my taste (points for rampant enthusiasm, though!), whereas having an office based on Walt's would be nifty.
