Decorating a space for kids is a great opportunity to let your creativity and imagination run wild. What kinds of activities should be included? What’s the theme? Are we too old to be this excited? Never! If you’re still sticking to the blue-for-boy pink-for-girl strategy, there are some fun ways to mix it up a bit!

With the technology of 3D room design, you can even see what the space will look like before making your final decision! Here are some inspirations of 18 unconventionally decorated children’s rooms to help you create the ultimate play space for your little ones.

We love these wooden bunk beds that are not only modern, but ultra chic. What sophisticated people these little ones will grow up to be!

This amazing design is again created by H20 architects.

We love the imagination and the architectural elements of this multifunctional space. It has steps and niches waiting to be explored. Your little ones will find use in these different nooks such as climbing, hiding, drawing, playing etc…

Beautifully designed, but maybe not the most practical for the everyday. However, room them all together and it becomes a perfect space for family vacations. Great way to save some space while sleeping the whole lot.
