Subtle to Over-the-Top: Themed Nurseries & Kids' Rooms

Best of 2012

If there's one room in the house where you can get away with a theme, it's your child's room where playfulness and whimsicality are right at home. We see many themed rooms throughout the year - some parents go all out with a bold, obvious theme while others chose to make a more subdued nod to a point of inspiration. Here are ten standout themed rooms from 2012 to revisit:

Jude's Nautical Big Boy Room
Sacha's Whale of a Room
Quinlan's Sky of Blue and Sea of Green
The Geekiest Kid's Room in the Universe
Victor's Atomic Alien Invasion
Henry's Happy Robot Room
Gabe: The Tiny British Gentleman
Ivy's Modern Matryoshka Room
Baby Iggy's Groovy Sci-Fi Room
Teddy's Little Man Room
