The attic often is still in close competition with the basement as the scariest place in the house. I just watched an episode of Modern Family where the youngest boy is tricked into moving into the attic by his older sisters. Too bad their attic didn't look anything like this one.
As the top floor, an attic with windows gets the best light in the house. The sloped ceilings make for architectural interest and creates a cozy sleeping nook with a bed tucked beneath. Keeping the walls white makes the room fresh and airy. And there is no need to fret about the lack of a closet - just hang a rod for storing the kids' clothes.
