If we've learned anything from some of our favorite interior-design contributors at Refinery29 it's to think outside the box. And, when it comes to decking out our personal space, we couldn't agree more with the idea of getting creative. That's where shopping in the children's decor section comes into play.
Seriously, the kiddies' section has it going on, whether you're in search of charm, some space-saving storage or furniture, or a bit of a price break. It's especially helpful if you're outfitting a city apartment or small room and find yourself in dire need of non-oversized rugs, side tables and storage. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the options often come in pastels, bright colors, and patterns — a respite from those more serious shades of adult-approved, deep, woodsy browns and basic white. Shop on, and be prepared for some childlike delight.
