    • Zoobilation!

      This soft, gender-neutral space gains coziness and drama from a bright animal-theme rug and sophistication from the painted gold- and beige-striped walls.

    • Going Froggie!

      Satisfy a desire for all things amphibian with this frog-inspired room. Cool blue stars in the "outdoor" space, painted frogs, reeds, and clouds create no-worries artwork throughout the room.

    • All the Colors in the Rainbow

      Eye-popping green coats the walls of this room perfect for a middle-school girl. The daybed has a rolling drawer underneath that's easy for a young girl to access. The clever canopy is a ribbon shower curtain.

      Comical space creatures smile out on this room's occupants. Nearly every color in the rainbow was used on the bedding, backed with eye-popping turquoise walls.

    • Hooray for Orange!

      Orange serves as a vivid background for light birch furniture and block quilts. A string of pennants showcases the other fun colors in the quilt.

    • Isle of Style

      By mixing natural tones with splashy hues, the room's color palette became obvious. The rest -- punchy bedding, fun desk doodads, and a woven window shade -- flowed like lava into a room that coordinates without being "matched.

      Red Revisited

      A plain-color wall is a great backdrop for a child's room. Here, a stars-and-stripes theme predominates, yet it could have easily been black racing stripes or yellow stars. Allow for a child's creativity by providing blackboards, personalized pillows, and tackboards.
