Minimalist posters from our favorite children’s stories

Love fairy tales and classic family movies but not interested in the commercial studio posters for your kids’ rooms? We’ve found just the answer.

Mary Poppins poster


These gorgeously atmospheric and evocative posters from artist Christian Jackson are a beautiful way to decorate with the fairy tales you love and the sophisticated colors you might prefer. Each image perfectly condenses an entire story, like Mary Poppins above, into one iconic design that really opens up imagination options for kids of all ages.

Rapunzel Minimalist Poster
Your daughter loves Rapunzel, but good gravy, that’s a lot of lavender and pink. Instead of decals and licensed characters, opt for this stylish combo of plum, gold, and a shot of scarlet. How pretty would that be with blond wood and red-and-white chevrons?

Alice in Wonderland Minimalist Poster
Alice in Wonderland now comes to life with more options than the traditional bookplates or the cartoon Disney characters. Minimize the palette to black and white, maybe with a shot of red, just like a deck of cards? I’m thinking this poster of the Cheshire Cat’s grin could last a kid well into adulthood and the dreaded blacklight phase.


Little Red Riding Hood Minimalist Poster
Hoodwinked was cute, but I don’t want it on my wall. This evocative image of Little Red Riding Hood would be gorgeous in a forest-themed room with a bright red bedspread and a stuffed wolf, perhaps?

There are also great posters of the Princess and the Pea, Snow White, and the Ugly Duckling. All classic stories in classy colors. Those are fairy tales I can believe in.~Delilah

    It’s so neat to see these classic stores distilled down to a single image that says so much.
