Taking time to sort out what decor one wants in an area of the house can be very time consuming and the start of many an argument amongst those that live there but don’t contribute!  I have found this amongst some of my friends who’s adult children have come home to nest again.    There was a feeling some years ago that the kids had left home and it was now the adults’ time to stretch wings and make some time for their own travels and hobbies.  Not a hope now.  The grown up toddlers are back from uni, usually earning reasonably but not well enough to buy a house of their own.  But when mum and dad want to start decorating their own house, you’d be amazed how many of the returners suddenly find their voice and make objections.  They have read the magazines and seen the high ideals of city life.  But they don’t want to pay for it!
