A kid's room theme gives you direction for decorating -- and makes the space fun and playful. But you never want to go with a theme your little one will grow tired of, and you obviously should stick to his or her favorite things. The problem is: How do you do that without sacrificing style?

The solution is keeping the room from looking over the top or overwhelmingly decorated. Don't make every single item "themey." Instead, choose just a few stylized and coordinated accents that can make a room feel exciting every time your child walks in.

Check out some beautiful kids' rooms that take on tried-and-true themes and show them in a whole new light. There are also some themes here you may have never thought of before. Prepare to want to redecorate thanks to these inspiring rooms -- that kids and parents both love.

  • Surrounded by stars.

    1

    A star-themed room is an excellent choice and is also a look that's not difficult to achieve. Go with star decals for the walls, star sheets and blankets, and then add in a star nightlight and other decor. Stars are timeless so this idea is especially great for those who want to decorate for the nursery and keep the theme as their child gets older. 

  • Dinosaur digs.

    For the kid in that seemingly endless dinosaur phase, a dino-themed room is another terrific idea. Cluster together dinosaur art that's modern, not cutesy, and you've got a roaring good theme.

  • Princess and pink.

    Your little one can have a princess-style room without it being overwhelming. We love the soft turret-like canopy over the bed, the sweet white walls, and the lightest pink bedding. 

  • Fairy-tale room.

    The fairy-tale-themed room features adorable woodland creatures and the softest of colors. The swan and the bunny ballerina on the walls are perfect accents.

  • Adventure seeker.

    Geometric shapes on the walls made to look like mountains, a giant orange sun, the rain cloud in the distance, and that fantastic plane -- all of which make up the coolest adventure room. We love the suitcase side table, too.

  • Unicorn dreams.

    6

    Pink and gray go together really well, and this pairing of a split painted wall lends itself to the more magical side. We see those stars as magic unicorn "dust," of course. Combine this look with accents of clouds, rainbows, and more stars, and you have the perfect room for your unicorn lover.

  • Counting sheep.

    7

    There is something so Zen about this "counting sheep"–themed room. Of course, it's thanks to those adorable sheep sleep toys, but also the shades of green in an entirely white room provide stunning pops of color. Themes can include just one color and one item -- we love this combo.

  • Bunny city.

    8

    This is a chic example of a bunny theme without any pastels, which is great for those moving on from those colors. The city theme painted with bunny silhouettes on the walls adds a whimsical touch, making this the most fun room in the house.

  • Outdoors indoors.

    For the kid who loves to camp, this is the perfect theme room. A tent-style bed helps kids feel super cozy. Bonus points for a glow-in-the-dark star-and-planet ceiling.

  • Super for a superhero.

    10

    The neon green and black combo is exactly what starts this room off perfectly. It's all tied together with the masked crusader wall decals and the POW! toy bins. This style allows your kid's room to feel current, no matter what superhero phase he or she may go through.
