Welcome to the Jungle

If your kid loves animals, this jungle collection from Drew Barrymore is guaranteed to please. The actor’s Flower Home collection at Walmart includes a new line of kid’s room themes, and we love the illustrative style of this tiger bedding. The bold colors and funky, abstract shapes are great for a toddler’s room but will age into a big kid’s room, too.

Buy It: Walmart, $49.00-$59.00

Tutti Frutti

Whimsical fruit is trending everywhere from art prints to statement earrings — and it’s a great theme for a kid’s room, especially when you decorate with all warm colors. Pair this strawberry bedding with framed prints of oranges and bananas for a bright and cheery vibe.

Buy It: Walmart, $44.00-$49.00

Out of This World

If your kid loves learning about the moon and the stars, design a space-inspired room. We love this solar system bedding collection from Crate & Kids, especially the tiny Pluto throw pillow. For decor, don’t forget a telescope for pre-bedtime stargazing, and '90s glow-in-the-dark ceiling stars are a must, too.

Dino Decals

Removable wall decals are one of the easiest ways to decorate a kid’s room, especially if you can’t paint or wallpaper the walls. And they make a big impact. This giant herbivore from Etsy makes the cutest statement wall for a dinosaur-themed room. And the design is totally customizable depending on the size you need and color scheme.

Buy It: Etsy, $129.78

Puppy Love

If your kiddo and doggo are inseparable, why not create decor based on that bond? This adorable kid’s room by Brian Patrick Flynn was designed for a girl’s love of her golden retriever and includes two giant prints of the furry family member, as well as a lookalike stuffed animal and shaggy, plush desk chair.

Boho Chic

If you’re designing for a kid who marches to the beat of his or her own drum, appeal to that free spirit with an eclectic, bohemian theme. In addition to bunk beds, this kid’s room by Urbanology Designs features a giant, canopied daybed for reading and daydreaming.

Safari Vibes

How cute is this trek-themed room? The canvas bed canopy really adds to the story and feels like a field tent out on the savanna. We love the black, white and olive green color palette, especially the palm frond rug and the giraffe decal from Crate & Kids.

Buy It: Crate & Kids, $199.00

Comics IRL

“Avengers, assemble!” For kids who love superheroes, turn the room into a comic book. This space by J&J Design Group features a black-and-white comic-style statement wall that puts you right in the action of a busy metropolis. The color palette is bold and playful with Hulk green and Captain America red, white and blue.

Modern + Minimal

This Scandinavian-inspired room by Urbanology Designs packs tons of whimsy with pom-poms, bunting and a dainty eyelash motif. For kids who get overwhelmed by loud designs, the white and light wood color palette creates a calming, open and airy environment.

Dreamy Unicorns

If your little one loves all things fantasy and magic, this mythical line from Target is sure to inspire. The dreamy bedding and decor are all about unicorns, from art prints to blankets to a giant plush that works as a throw pillow or floor cushion.

Lego Land

Embrace your child’s love of Lego bricks with a totally Lego-themed room. This kid’s space by designer Vanessa Antonelli features the iconic bricks in photo prints for a statement wall, and there’s even a dedicated play table to keep all pieces elevated and off the floor. If you’ve ever stepped on a Lego, you know why this is such a great idea.

Posh Hello Kitty

After 45 years, Hello Kitty is still a big part of pop culture, and now you can deck out your kid’s space with bedding and decor inspired by the iconic Sanrio character. The new line from Pottery Barn Teen features a more glam color palette than Hello Kitty’s typical primary colors so it’s a great option for tweens.

Grand Prix Room

This over-the-top, racetrack-themed space by Carrie Maniaci is all about the details. The top bunk is designed to look like a car garage, and the bottom bunk is literally a parked car. The room also features a wheel-shaped area rug, racetrack photo mural and even a fuel pump column.

Trendy Rainbows

Rainbows are everywhere in design right now — from sneakers to bath mats — and the whimsical theme is perfect for a toddler’s room. We love this giant, peel-and-stick decal from Pottery Barn Kids. You can use the rainbow arch to bridge awkward corners in a room, such as the space between this nightstand and bunk bed. Or you could use it behind a regular twin bed to create a faux headboard.

Buy It: Pottery Barn Kids, $439.00

Grand Slam Design

Designer Leslie Lamarre created a Yankees-inspired room for the ultimate baseball fan complete with pillows made from jerseys, a statement mural that makes you feel like you’re standing in centerfield and a shag rug that mimics grass.

Under the Sea

If your little one loves The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo and other aquatic tales, riff off their favorite fish and sea creatures for an ocean-themed room. This bed canopy creates a super-cute grotto complete with coral shell ties and a sea urchin light fixture inside.

Buy It: Wayfair, $129.99

Up in the Air

A custom-made airplane bed — complete with cockpit — is the centerpiece of this aviation-themed room. Designer Dahlia Mahmood also made two custom dressers: One looks like a fueling station, and the other looks like a couple of vintage suitcases stacked on top of each other. To complete the over-the-top room, the walls feature map murals and the ceiling is painted to look like the open sky.

Come Sail Away

Dock your little captain in this cool-breeze nautical room, where he or she can sail away anytime into dreamland. From Pottery Barn Kids, the boat bed anchors the room, but accessories, such as the nautical flags and architectural sailboat sketches, will drive learning and curiosity about sailing, navigation and seaside communications. While it's clear that living in this sailboat sanctuary will thrill the seafaring soul, boosting the educational aspect of the room is as easy as A, B, C. Decorate with the colorful and geometrically interesting nautical flag alphabet, and make it a breeze to combine a child's oceanic interests with reading and codes.
