A playful and inspirational furniture style is integral to toddler room ideas. It certainly sets a youthful and whimsical mood. In this case, the items are all quaint in nature. Yet many make a striking designer statement.

The mural wall, for instance, sets a memorable backdrop for the feature bed. In addition, the botanical leaves on the wallpaper complement the soft color scheme. A hanging plant fills the vertical space while adding another playful tactile element.

Each décor item is texture-rich. This brings depth to the toddler room and provides visual interest. The netting above the bed creates a haven while adding a charming touch to the sleeping corner. In addition, embroidered pillows, a baby quilt, and sheer linen curtains bring layers of softness and balance. And lastly, a tassel pendant ties the room together.
