Tuesday, March 2, is the 106th birth anniversary of Dr. Seuss, creator of the classic children’s books “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham. ” Of course his real name wasn’t Dr. Seuss; it was Theodor Geisel and he died 19 years ago. In his honor, we were going to inflict a Seussian-inspired entry on you like:


This chest of drawers from Cartoon-Furniture.com is totally Dr. Seuss Deco.

Would you decorate in a house
Would you decorate with a mouse?
Would you decorate in the rain?
Would you decorate on a plane?

Instead we’ll spare you the trisyllablic meter and just  bring you a round-up of Seuss-esque goodies from across the web:

Bold enough to cover all four walls of a room with Seussian red-and-white striped wallpaper? Here’s just such a room at HousetoHome.co.UK.

Get end tables, bookshelves and beds that look like they were made from Truffula trees at Cartoon-Furniture.com

Here’s a green-eggs-and-ham themed bedroom from NancyHadley.com.

This red-and-white striped photo frame from Rosenberry Rooms is tastefully Suessian. It’s on backorder, so lots of people must be doing Seuss Deco.

Look at this Dr.Seuss-themed room for kids at the Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando. (Go to slide six.) Cool.

Check out the Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cupcakes from Kitchen DoughDough. Blue cotton candy!

Who’s your favorite Dr. Seuss character? Would you decorate an entire room based on him or her?
