You don’t have to decorate the whole room in these bold colors, but a fun and quirky mobile or over-the-crib art is a cool idea for a Toy Story nursery.

Gallery walls are always a good idea, and in a nursery they’re a great way to bring in the Disney theme of your choice without going all-out throughout the space. Also, you can easily switch out prints as Baby grows and his or her tastes change.

A Beauty and the Beast nursery deserves some classic touches, like these stained-glass effect movie portraits. White finishings and simple wallpaper keep the space from feeling too Disney-fied, but the roses along the curtain rod and Chip figurine sitting on the window sill are other nods to the theme.  

Look Up! Disney Nursery Idea

This ceiling mural is an absolutely brilliant way to spread a little Disney magic in Baby’s room. The adjacent hot air balloons are a further nod to one of the modern Pixar classics, Up.
