The decor that gets marketed to kids usually has, well, an unsophisticated look to it. Much of it is plastic and primary colored – which is all good and well. But if you or your kid is craving something a little more unique, here are some other projects that don't sacrifice sturdiness or style.

Above, three colorful tote bags were mounted to the wall in this playroom from Architectural Digest to hold anything and everything.

Peg board works to cleverly keep Nerf guns and lightsabers in their place, too, as you can see here with this project from 733 Blog.

There are two smart solutions in this shot from Better Homes and Gardens. The wall-mounted rollers shelves are the perfect compact art station, but also check out the wire baskets mounted to the wall on the left.

Better Homes and Gardens used the wall-mounted basket idea again here, this time with crates hung within the little ones' reach.

These compact book shelves by Susie Ho of Mend are a great way to make use of a corner that isn't big enough for a traditional shelf or dresser storage.

Store art supplies in apothecary jars for a colorful and organized display, like here on Raising Lemons.

And finally, a really smart magnetic toy car rack from Land of Nod. Your cars might not always look this elegantly ombre, but the idea to rack up toy cars off the floor like knives on a magnetic knife rack is a smart one.
