In the three apartments featured in this post, designers have found a way to do just that. A playful kid’s room need not fall victim to a deluge of toys. Rather, choosing the simplify and keep things organized while incorporating playful, colorful, and interactive elements will make a space that is fun for the children and still attractive to the adults.

Indoor plants always brighten up a space that is otherwise largely neutral
When the living area flows into the dining room, everything feels bigger and it is easy to entertain.
Natural wood features give an otherwise modern space a bit of a rustic feeling.
Incorporating a child’s bedroom does not have to mean sacrificing design, as seen here.
The cozy sleeping area easily accommodates sleepovers with its sectional design.
Opposite the sleeping cubby is a drawing wall, inspiring creativity in anyone who comes into the room, as well as a unique table lamp that adds a pop of color.
For the parents’ room, the theme bends towards tropical.
A leafy accent wall provides the perfect backdrop for an Eames House Bird replica.
The wood beam ceiling is another natural, yet modern, element.
