Every kids' dream room incorporates a top secret no-grown-up zone, whether it's a pint-size indoor tent or a secret playroom accessed by an unassuming wardrobe. (Bonus points for anything involving a ladder, or better yet, a slide.) Most of this wish list fades with a love of tree forts, of course, but something about the built-in bunk room never quite loses its allure. It's a permanent sleepover setup that design savvy parents will appreciate too.

is a chic update on that Brady Bunch
room we always secretly pined for.

-worthy hideaway, as Lars Bolander
