Is there a more beloved storybook character than Winnie the Pooh? Cute, cuddly, and timeless – Pooh is warmly regarded by both children and adults alike.

On July 15, Pooh, Christopher Robin and the rest of the gang from the Hundred Acre Woods make their return to the big screen.

Winnie the Pooh made his literary debut in 1925, but the stuffed toy bear that inspired A.A. Milne to write the famous character was actually “born” in 1921. Mile’s wife, Daphne, gave the bear to their son, Christopher Robin, as a gift. While spending time at their holiday home in East Sussex, Milne began to notice the games Christopher Robin played with Pooh and started writing about them.

In 1961 the Milne family licensed the rights to Disney – and Pooh became an international superstar. Today, he has his own place on Hollywood’s Pavement Of The Stars and lives in a glass case at the New York Public Library where 750,000 people visit him every year.

To honor the tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff, we wanted to take a look at some of our favorite Winnie the Pooh design inspirations.

Winnie the Pooh and all his friends from the Hundred Acre Woods will come out and play with the help of some wall art from Wall Pops.

This warm, golden yellow from Benjamin Moore is reminiscent of Pooh’s favorite snack – honey! This color works wonderfully in a child’s room as it can grow with them as their room decor changes.
