Parents of young children are welcoming the break from pinks, princesses and plastic. “The kids’ rooms now are more of an extension of the rest of the house,” says Paula Berberian, creative director for WallPops, a line of removable peel-and-stick wall art popular for kids’ rooms. When entering that space, “you’re not assaulted by a totally different look and feel,” she says.
