So, I'm not good at decorating at all. All of the walls in my home are bare. Every time I try to buy stuff, I leave the store empty handed.

Anyway, we do adult foster care for two developmentally disabled women. They have lived with us for about 4 years. They came with a few things for their rooms, but the stuff was not really anything special. I've been working on making their space more cozy and comfortable despite my ineptitude.

I've got one bedroom and their bathroom almost finished. I'm going to get a nice chair for the empty corner of the bedroom. Can you please take a look at these two rooms and see if you have any suggestions? If you walked in here, would you think these rooms were comfortable?

Ignore the hamper full of clothes. That's mostly bedding that needed to be changed from this morning. I'm doing the other lady's laundry and haven't got to this one yet.

A writing surface would be my recommendation. I like wall decals. Easy to change out as interests change and won't damage your paint. My daughter has an awesome cherry tree one from pottery barn.

I might be lame... I see nothing wrong to begin with...

I would add maybe a single candle in the corner...maybe a bowl of that cool looking potpourri.
