I’ve always been a fan of the heartwarming Toy Story trilogy (honestly, who isn’t?), which is why I’m certain my fellow Pixar-lovers will be equally obsessed with this incredible nursery.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve forever had an emotional connection to the cloud pattern from the film; as a little kid I used to sleep on Toy Story cloud sheets, so the moment I laid my eyes on theseperfectly painted clouds, I knew this nursery was going to be something special.
New mom Desiree Cook had a similar experience when deciding how to decorate her first baby’s nursery. Originally, she was obsessed with planning every inch of her little girl’s room … until she found out she was having a boy. She was at a loss for what theme to choose, but her husband’s love for a particular Pixar film inspired her.
She explained that her husband is obsessed with Toy Story, noting, “Our office (which was to become the nursery) looked more like a shrine to Pixar than an office. He has more Toy Story stuff than you could possibly imagine.” All of this is to say that he already had the perfect accessories for their baby boy’s room — the toys!
From the hanging barrel of monkeys, to the classic Toy Story toys, to the fun block letters on the wall, this room will make you feel like you’ve been transported right into Andy’s room alongside Buzz, Woody, and the gang.
Cook said in order to make the room more fun, she played around with scale, explaining, “Some things are toy-sized; other things look as if you were toy-sized.”
Who wouldn’t want this kind of magical experience for their newborn?
She even included the Green Army Men, which she and her sister are in the process of making into stencils so that us fellow Toy Story enthusiasts can add them to our very own Disney-themed rooms. Everything is truly in the details of this nursery.
My favorite part about this room is the incorporation of cowboy and space themes. Why choose between Woody and Buzz when you can have both? Some may have seen this as a challenge, but Cook said, “I was inspired by Disney. They make whatever they dream up happen, no matter how difficult.” Can’t argue with that.
Picture it: your little one learning about the solar system while “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” quietly plays in the background. That sounds like the perfect room to grow up in if you ask me, but I may be a tiny bit biased.
Being the toy-inclusive room this clearly is, Cook of course made sure Rex, Slinky, Hamm, and the aliens were present. I can’t help but hope she muttered, “You have been chosen!” as she placed her husband’s personal collection of aliens atop the armoire. The toys surprisingly make perfect accents on the simple wooden furniture — who knew!
It’s safe to say this nursery is an amazing tribute to the Toy Story films. I know exactly what kind of room my future little one will be getting, that’s for sure.
In the meantime, I’ll be marathoning all three Toy Story films and quietly humming Randy Newman songs until I can get my hands on those cloud and Green Army Men stencils …
