Walt Disney Launches a Wallpaper Collection

From silent films and gloved mice to Arabian nights and amusement parks, the Walt Disney Company has covered a lot of bases. But never ever did I think the media conglomerate would get its feet wet in the world of wallpaper. I was wrong. York Wallcoverings and the lifestyle brand Walt Disney Signature have teamed up to debut an upscale wallpaper collection inspired by original artwork from the Disney archives of the 1940 classic Fantasia. The collection includes 12 prints with graphic and botanical motifs derived from specific scenes in the animated film, such as the dancing thistles and orchids, frost fairies, and milkweed ballerinas in "The Nutcracker Suite."

The verdict? I am really impressed. When wallpaper samples arrived at my desk and I saw the words "Disney" and "wallpaper," all I could think was, "Oh no." But the designs are sophisticated, modern, and hip! My two favorites are Allegro, a Moroccan-style fretwork pattern, and Shimmer, a grasscloth that's very subtly woven with metallic gold, but there are a few others I'd definitely use, too. The only downfall of the collection are two wallpapers, Pixie and Sparkle (at left), which have glass beading and sparkly sand on them; from a tactile perspective, they are cool, but the shimmer is just tacky.

I would paper a wall here or a wall there, or perhaps use a large remnant as a framed art piece, but I wouldn't paper an entire room. The designs, colors, and textures, however, I must admit--are fantastic!!

Beautiful! I love old artwork from Disney, such as the inspiration sketches for characters and settings. I kind of dig the blue sparkly paper above... maybe in small doses it would be nice.

Many of these are quite beautiful. I know it's dorky, but Fantasia is like my favorite movie of all time, so I really see the inspiration. I don't like using wallpaper, so I'd probably never use it myself, but the patterns are lovely!

I don't use a lot of wallpaper in general, but I really like these patterns. We painted our daughter's nursery with inspiration from the Disney Home webpage, so I explored their home offerings a little bit back then and I was impressed with their design ideas.

I'm not a wallpaper person.. I'd much rather paint, but I'm really surprised by how much I like the patterns on these. Go Disney!
