How Can I Make My Bedroom Appear Less Childish?

Good Questions

Q: I've recently had to move back in with my parents, and am struggling with making my childhood room look less… childish. Things that seemed fun or cute in my last apartment now seem to be making for a very teenage look!

The room is a fairly blank canvas at the moment — white walls (though they look cream in the photos), timber floor. I was thinking of painting one wall grey? The blind in the pictures is going to be replaced, so suggestions for what to replace them with would be great. I'm also planning on creating a 'gallery' area above the space the two larger pictures are currently leaning.

Suggestions for what to add or remove would be most welcome! (Keep in mind i'll be shipping any suggested additions to Ireland.)
