decorating without damage?

Not sure exactly where to post this!

I would love to hear how you all decorate/personalize your AS without damaging the finishes. My interior is fake wood , some kind of padded upper wall covering, and carpet like walls. Also some aluminum in galley area. And maybe vinyl covered walls in bathroom.

I want to hang pictures and other decorative items but do not want to damage the interior.

What do we use if we want to stick something down and not have it bounce about in transit? Hoping there is a way (maybe something used in earthquake zones in museums or something?) so that not everything has to be stowed every time we move.

Also, if we do want to permanantly mount something, do we just screw into the walls?

Any suggestions?
Thank you!

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

We have an '05 25FB. We have found that wall decorations can be hung on the "fuzzy" wall sections with the hook side of velcro on the back of the item. These flamingos and the Lucy license plate have been on the wall for almost 2 years and 30,000 miles.

I use velcro there also. Use the glue backed loop side on the wall and hook side on the item. If you ever want to get the hook side off the wall, just use a little lighter fluid (naptha) to remove it and disolve the glue. do not use this in the bath as the paper will searate from the board. I did that using a suction cup. I did use a screw to attach the clock over the television because of the weight, and having to remove it often to reset it for different time zones.

The 3M Command Strips and hooks work well. I mounted a hook above the television for a clock but remove the clock when traveling. Also put the new metal 3M hooks in bedroom to hang clothes, etc. Using the Command Strips to hold artwork from Artstream.
