Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

A lot of good tips, but I think your room should represent your personality and creativity more then your age.

I'm clearly living in a giants kids house then #noshame 😂

I guess I have a kiddie bedroom. Lol I love it tho

I love my bedroom it's colorful and represents me personally. I think that's how a space should be no matter how old you are, mature or not. Your space is you and it's for you to feel your best in

I use candies and air freshers

I agree with everyone here! I also use wallflowers and candles, we all like personality and we all like what we like. But good post.

So many good tips! But I still think you can be hitting 30 rocking awesome boho print duvet's and using mason jars!!

I think these are great tips. You can can still express your personality thru more mature pieces, but everyone likes what they like.
