Disney fanatics dream about what it would be like to live in the worlds of their favorite Disney movies or Disney Park. Some make those dreams a reality by staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Others might add some magical Disney touches to their homes.

Well, then there are those who dump the whole container of faith, trust, and pixie dust on their house and it turns out especially magical. This magical transformation is exactly what @kelseymichelle85 achieved in her home. Immersing Disney fans into their favorite movies, Kelsey shared her magical, Disney-inspired home on Instagram. Kelsey Hermanson recently interviewed with Good Morning America about her home, and gave them some amazing insight into her design process.

Let’s take a look at her castle together!


Welcome Mat

This Mickey mat gives a warm “Hiya Pal!”-sort-of welcome to all the guests who enter this happy place.

According to GMA, Kelsey said, “I grew up in Southern California and we would go to Disneyland all the time and I just love when you go there, you walk through those gates and you’re in a different world. You’re not in reality, you’re somewhere else. And I wanted that in our home. I wanted to be able to go into different rooms and feel a little bit of that Disney magic in every room.”

Tangled Living Room

My inner Disney princess gleams and glows as I look at this royal living room. It has just the right number of Tangled accents and regal touches of gold.

Cinderella Master Bedroom

My heart will be making wishes about this dream of a bedroom. Maybe kind little bluebirds help its occupant to get ready in the morning. The color scheme of this room is similar to the new color scheme of Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle update!

Kelsey said to GMA,”I just wanted it to feel dreamy. I wanted it to feel like just a complete departure from the rest of our house and really romantic and beautiful…”

Cinderella Cave

Cinderella is so enchanting that Kelsey figured her twice in her magical home. Dream big, Princess!

Ariel Bathroom

Life must be the bubbles in this cheerful bathroom. I think the seaweed would seem greener if this bathroom were “part of your world.” That mermaid scale tile and the dinglehopper display make me wish for a life “under the sea.” It reminds me of the bathrooms featured in Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in The Little Mermaid rooms.

Snow White Hallway

Beware the Evil Queen as you pass through this hallway, but if you dare, maybe the mirror will whisper who the fairest of them all really is.

Enchanted Tiki Guest Room

This room croons “Welcome to our tropical hideaway, you lucky people, you!” Kelsey’s guests would feel like part of the show as they bask in the island vibes this bedroom radiates. It makes me ready to head to Magic Kingdom right now! The Lion King throw is adorable and fits right into this enchanting room.

Alice in Wonderland Bathroom

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser on our virtual tour. Why, it almost looks as though we’ve fallen down a rabbit hole!

Aladdin Bathroom

Even if you cannot touch an endless diamond sky like Aladdin and Jasmine, this bathroom brings that feeling into reality. The curtains dance with twinkle lights and those lamps must have come straight from Agrabah’s marketplace. Her sink faucets look like Aladdin’s lamp, but apparently, she did not have to make a wish to find this unique touch according to her interview with GMA:

“A lot of the things I just find and repurpose,” she said about the faucet. “I do buy things at the Disney Store occasionally, but I really just like to repurpose things into my design. The true story is everything that I’ve done is on a budget. Most things that I do, I’ve either made myself or are just very inexpensive and I think the design overall has a very expensive look.”

Lady and the Tramp Nursery

There must be something wonderful and grand about this nursery. It is perfect for the little star sweeper who is sure to be cozy cuddled up with Duffy!

Peter Pan Nook

And what would a Disney-inspired home be without Tinker Bell? This figure reminds me of her sparkling finale during Happily Ever After at Walt Disney World Resort!

Lilo and Stitch Living Room

‘Ohana means family. This living room would be a great place to rest after a long day of surfing ‘til the sun sets beyond the horizon. Also, you’ve got to love that pineapple pet bed in the corner. What a sweet accent!
