Just because it’s the bedroom where junior sleeps doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make it dreamy. Thankfully, the gals (Melisa Fluhr and Pam Ginocchio) from Project Nursery have a few decorating ideas to share. So whether your kid is into bold colors or chic safari motifs, here are 10 cool kids room designs that are guaranteed to even make grown-ups swoon.

Sizzling Colors. Children are never boring so why should their rooms be? Consider embracing today’s hot color combos to complement your child’s shining personality. Here designer Andrika King infuses a white room with bright fuchsia and orange bedding and accessories. She then takes this punch of color up a notch with unexpected, bold painted moldings.

Dual-Purpose Beds. As your tots grow, so does their need for floor space when it comes time to play with toys and friends. A mattress positioned against the wall acts like a sofa during the day allowing for playtime and a bed at night. Rebecca Propes of Petite Party Studio creates her very own DIY palette beds perfect for the pint-sized men in her life.

Mini Offices. Homework starts early these days so help make it fun. New York City blogger and father of two, Greg McHale of OnTheRealNY energizes his children’s workspace with a brightly colored desk and hip industrial accents.

World Traveler. Julie Frank and Alessia Corpino of children’s design firm, My Tiny Nest, create a tailored big boy room featuring a floor-to-ceiling map mural, encompassing both art and education. It’s a big, big world out there and now this lucky kid is sure to score an “A” in geography.

Beach Boy. This is the number one theme in boy’s rooms nationwide! Could it be that parents are hoping calm waters and ocean breezes may have positive side-affects? From seaside cottages to So. Cal surfers, all it takes is a touch of citrus hues paired with navy or aqua (here by Anthology Interiors) to make a room summer-y all-year round.

Performance Nooks. First there was the reading nook, then the costume nook and now, future American Idol contestants take note of this kid-friendly stage. Liz Carroll Interiors’ playful design encourages a child’s artistic side by dedicating a corner of the room for playtime theatrics.

Custom Lofted Beds. The concept of bunking two kids in one room is soaring to new heights! Take cue from style blogger, Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends.com. Nicole creates extra storage by lofting the beds for her two daughters in a seriously stylish little girl’s room.

Creative Storage Solutions. Why not make your storage solution look cool too. TrendyPeas.com‘s creative director Patchi Cancado wanted to create a room for her son that was both functional and stylish. Utilizing modern floating shelving and large drawers for storage gives this room an organized and clutter-free vibe.

Sophisticated Patterns. Bold prints in darker colors are popping up in kids rooms everywhere. J and J Design Group uses an ultra stylish trellis patterned wallpaper in navy for maximum wow factor. Coupled with the coral nightstands this room is fit for one sophisticated little lady.
