We've reached our breaking point with chalkboard paint, wall decals, and monogrammed bean bag chairs. But never fear: there's a new crop of ideas for children's room decor with some serious staying power.
|Extend your safari chair's influence to the nursery with a leather-trimmed neutral palette and a canvas-draped bed that hints at adventure, YSL-style. Voyager Steamer Nightstand, $599, Restoration Hardware Baby & Child|
|This trend isn't exclusive to the runway and citified sitting rooms--bring it to the G-rated crowd for an unexpectedly chic result, then kid-ify with lighthearted accessories such as a freewheeling art print or animal curio. Soft Clouds Blanket, $43, The Modern Baby|
|Need we elaborate? They're magical. They're imagination think tanks. They're everywhere--and we're not even close to saying 'when.' Teepee, $249, Pottery Barn Kids|
|Color-match the wall and furniture paint to the shelves for a totally unexpected twist on the traditional notion of a palette. Bonus: this also works as a spotlight for artwork and toy collections. Wall Shelf, $35, Land of Nod|
|This tightly patterned floral has a hint of Little House on the Prairie to it and a dash of '90s too, but its deeply hued background keeps the effect fresh and modern. Lavender Dream (#322313), $132, Wallpaper Direct|
