Home interiors aren't always about form, beauty and function—they're also places to have fun and show off your personality! A playful home is a happy home. It reminds us of the importance of taking a lighter approach to life and appreciating the transitory beauty of this thing called life. But so often, the only ones get to have playful rooms are children! Well, here at homify we believe that everyone has the right to have a little fun at home. So we've scoured our archives to find 9 playful interiors bursting with personality. They range from quirky rooms to unusual decorations and swinging seats. There's definitely something here that will bring out the child in every grown adult…

1. Hanging chairs and surfboards

A playful interior doesn't always need to be out there or outrageous. Sometimes all you need are a few low-key features. A suspended hanging chair and a few decorative surfboards are a good start…  

2. A ceiling full of crocheted lampshades

Crocheted items were the domain of old grannies for a long time—and then they suddenly became cool! The crocheted lampshades here give a whimsical ambience to this colourful living room. We love it!

3. A kayak staircase

It's not often we come across a unique home interior like this. The seats of this kayak have been converted into cool steps and made into a staircase! It's definitely one for the more adventurous decorator.

4. Teacup pendant lights

Upcycled teacup and teapot pendant lights are a bit trend at the moment. They add a gentle, playful feel to the home without being totally over the top.

5. The Space Invaders home

This little bathroom was designed for a fan of the 1980s arcade game Space Invaders. They even went so far as to tile error warnings on the bathroom wall!

6. Human-sized floor lamp

This floor lamp is sure to scare anyone creeping into your home at night. It also gives this living room a wonderful zest. We're big fans of the tree branch lighting as well.

7. Bathroom with an underwater theme

Who says a little bathroom needs to be boring or white? This awesome little black bathroom has a swirl of underwater life that is sure to have guests lingering in the bathroom. This one comes to us courtesy of Singaporean interior designer and decorator Design Intervention.

8. Blow up mirrors and a stage-like design

This interior is definitely one for lovers of the dramatic arts. The living room resembles a stage in many ways. It has a huge mural backdrop with classical figures. It also has a very unique ceiling with blow up mirrors!

9. A dedicated games room




Those who like to play hard might want to create a games room. This games room has the obligatory pool table, mood lighting and ultra comfy couches.
