More decorating advice for boomerang kids' rooms at home

We’ve already shared some tips on how to update your adult child’s space so that he or she doesn’t feel like the move home is a move straight back into childhood. Here are some more tips, this time from the Cape Cod Times.

Here’s their list of five-second fixes for your adult child’s room:

  • Add some fluff: Decorative pillows in corresponding colors can give a bit of pop to a plain bedspread.
  • Floor it: Adding an Oriental rug or other vibrant floor covering disguises ratty carpet and brightens the room.
  • Print ’em: A favorite print, a blown-up photo of friends, or a tapestry hung on the wall immediately draws the eye toward it – and away from the piles of dirty clothes in the corner.
  • All-in-one: A bed-in-a-bag set, which often contains a comforter, sheets and pillowcases, can refurbish a room in one fell swoop.
  • It’s a keeper: A favorite keepsake, such as a high school trophy or beloved teddy bear, will ensure the room is comfortable, no matter how many changes are made.
