When we asked how you've maintained a sense of home through your moves, you replied with solutions that combined practicality, creativity, and decorating know-how.
Paint: Painting is an inexpensive and dramatic way to change a room. Get permission and be prepared to return the walls to the original color when you move out.
Fabric: Whether you prefer cheerful chintz, rich tapestry, or some other style, fabric is a relatively inexpensive (and temporary) way to personalize a room.
Bring home with you: Little items can mean a lot, providing tangible ways to cope with multiple moves.
Collect local flavor: Reflect your world-traveler status in your home décor.
