Unique ideas for kids rooms?
I haven't seen enough unusual ideas for kids rooms and I want something different from the plain vanilla.
My kids rooms are only 11'x12' and I'd like to utilize that space creatively and efficiently. I'd like to do built-ins like window seats and pullman type beds.
Here's dd's inspiration room:
She loves the color, the window seat, the loft, and the play nook. And she wants curtains around the bed and lots of flowers.

A child's room must be adaptable though. She'll always love butterflies and flowers but she won't want to sleep in a loft or play in the nook in 10 years. So a space needs to be flexible. Maybe not all built ins should be permanent.
Something like this could last a long time before it would need replacing:

If you weren't worried about resale - what cool, unique, and fun things would you incorporate into your kid's rooms?
I'm thinking of a forest theme and a treehouse for my toddler's room, or maybe I should go with the maps again...
