When my parents moved into their house I was probably around 10, and my new room was an awful salmon pink with greasy kiss marks on the walls from the six year old who used it. I desperately wanted to redecorate and my mom agreed. However, I wanted black and white stripes with No Doubt posters and JTT pictures from Teen Beat. Instead my mom overruled everything and put white carpet, dark maroon walls, antique wood furniture, and gold/maroon/hunter green accents on everything. I hated it. I still hate it and I moved out about ten years ago. I wasn't allowed to put up any pictures, I got into trouble for spilling things (like blue nail polish) on the carpet, and the one poster I taped to the back of my door was ripped down and thrown out. So, basically I hated it and had to live in it for 7 years. I agree with the previous commenter, I had one of those grown-up "beautiful rooms" and it was stifling.

I really like long runners in the hallway but our cats love to use it like a slip'n'slide. Do you guys have any suggestions to keep from having to fix it repeatedly? It ends up being a bunched up tripping hazard.

@EllenChristine, there is most definitely a recession for everyone, including programmers, engineers, technicians, etc. The number of layoffs, entire departments being cut, is astounding. It is a situation I see every day when I visit companies. It's especially depressing when I've built a rapport with these guys after years and then see them carrying their belongings out in a box.

Can someone remind me where to find those bookshelves? They might be "overdone" but they seem like they'd be a good fit for the tiny room I'm moving into.
