Why we love this pic: This design is overflowing with the kind of ethereal whimsy that's as delightful for little ones as it is adults. An inviting pastel color palette sets a soothing tone appropriate for the bedroom while an array of celestial details and textural treasures — like the shaggy throws and a woven pom-pom basket — add plenty of playful visual intrigue.

The takeaway: You're never too old to delight in a little whimsy.
