    Everything in this slideshow

    • Pretty in Pink

      This nursery is girly and bold with a pink, black, and white color palette. The pink walls and ruffled window treatments show that this room is meant for a baby. But the oversize rocker, antique mirror, and classic white furniture will make this scheme easy to convert to a tween or guest room.

    • Lovely Baby Nursery

      Beautiful floral carpeting harmonizes with the room's upholstered chair and valance. These fabric pieces have been exquisitely detailed using borders and coordinating fabrics.

    • Going All the Way

      Tone-on-tone painted stripes add a sophisticated touch to this boy's room. The neutral pieces, such as the plaid ottoman, will easily transition from a little boy's room to a teenager's room.

    • Pink and Green

      Gorgeous pink-and-green toile wallpaper sets the tone for this whimsical baby nursery. The colors and patterns have enough interest to outlast babyhood.

    • Pink and Floral

      Designed with a growing young girl in mind, this space includes both long-lasting furniture and color schemes as well as whimsical wall murals and pink fabric shades -- a combination that is as perfect for teddy bears as it is for prom dresses.

    • Two Sweet

      A bedroom for two needs many things. Ample storage and plenty of seating are high on the list. This room has these elements plus a decorating scheme that's both playful and mature. The rosebud wallpaper, pink plaid curtains, table lamps, and ottomans signal that this room is for young girls. Elegance and longevity come from the white fireplace surround and traditional lines of the headboards and footboards.

    • No Place Like Home

      Toile bedding and gauzy fabric as a bed skirt and canopy give this girl's space grown-up elegance. Yellow gives the room a cherry, youthful feel. Accent pillows, such as the soccer ball, show off the youth's hobbies without making the room seem like a kids-only zone. Floating shelves on the wall behind the bed add a fun twist to necessary storage.

    • Cheery Girl's Room

      Bold flower fabrics are the only hints that this room might be for a girl and not a grown-up. The simple iron bed frame, vintage desk, and plaid bed skirt give the room a sophisticated look. Accents throughout the room can be changed to fit the occupant. The fabric screen is a simple and versatile way to dress up walls. Ottomans at the end of the bed provide extra storage, while the accent pillows give the room a pop of color and provide extra seating. The bold flower pattern on the screen and ottomans creates a youthful feel, but with a quick change of pattern, the room could have a whole new look.

    • Attic Escape

      Canopy beds offer elegant flair to any bedroom. Hanging artwork is another way to give a kid's room grown-up appeal. The playful chandelier adds a bit of whimsy to the room, an element crucial to any kid-friendly space. Piles of accent pillows on the bed and sofa add color and comfort.

      Bold Style

      This wall treatment's bold scale sets the stage for large furnishings, including the oversize graphic floor lamps on either side of the bed. The color draws attention to the special qualities of pieces such as the rocking horse and rice-paper lampshades.

      Hoppy Room for Kids

      Bunny sentinels perch atop each bedpost ensuring sweet dreams for the child who sleeps here. A reversible periwinkle duvet cover folds back to reveal additional color and pattern and sets the tone for the room's color scheme, including green plaid accents. White furniture grounds the room's decor and gives the eye a place to rest.

      Girly in Green

      Fresh and pretty, this green room showcases a large iron daybed. Floral wallpaper and a mix of toiles, stripes, and prints add elegance to the space. An old metal washstand, painted a soft green, serves as a nightstand. Antique cruets hold flowers.

    • 13 of 22

      Toile for Girls

      Duvets and pillows made from a bright toile and coordinating plaid bring the deep wall color to the beds. The prints also tone down the dazzling effect of white matelasse coverlets and furnishings.

      The Prince Sleeps Here

      The pillow says it all, yet this is a bedroom that can as easily accommodate a young boy as it can a visiting guest. Wallpaper stripes add height to the room and beautifully tailored draperies fall from just below the border paper at the ceiling.

    • 15 of 22

      Swedish for Kids

      Stir up equal amounts of baby blue, white, and soft green for a room that hints at a sophisticated Swedish style. While the furnishings are simply constructed, exquisite decorative painting and layers of crisp cotton fabrics look perfectly enchanting.

    • 16 of 22

      Hot-Air Balloon Theme

      Designers of this child's bedroom took one look out the treetop windows to come up with a hot-air balloon theme. The themed fabric is used both alone and cut into patchwork squares used with coordinating fabrics. And the sheers? Why they're balloon shades, of course!

    • 17 of 22

      Fit for a Princess

      Sophisticated pink cabbage roses and tan checked fabrics are layered into the bedding while charming trompe l'oeil ceiling swags, sky niches, and crown canopy create an aura of princess-worthy grandeur.

    • 18 of 22

      Blue-Ribbon Design

      A wide tailored valance over the windows shows off a large-scale plaid fabric selected to coordinate with the duvet fabric. The pretty fabric-laced bow detail ties in with the duvet, pillow border, and draperies. Neat blue bows decorate the tablecloth and pillow sham.

      For Little Girls

      An exuberant mix of patterns and colors inhabit this showhouse bedroom designed for a girl. Pink taffeta drapery panels sit cheerily on pink-and-green-striped walls. Even the wood floors join the fun with a layer of hot pink stain.

    • 20 of 22

      Equestrian Teen Bedroom

      Two-toned, painted walls and rope create a pinstriped wainscoting effect in this teenage equestrian's bedroom. Spaced 15 inches apart, rope pieces were hot-glued, secured with finish nails, and coated with polyurethane. Plaids and fringes echo the English riding theme.

    • 21 of 22

      Curtain Call

      With bold-color stripes and cleverly crafted bed canopies, this is a hip teen retreat that's easily shared. Suspended from stationary metal rods positioned just below ceiling height, the canopies elegantly crown each bed while providing a cocoon of privacy as well.
