How about a social emotional or specific life skills vocabulary word wall? There could be posters with money, measuring tools (both rulers and for cooking). Have students participate in making a calendar for the week or month that you display. It could include group therapy times, holidays (I like doing the daily national holidays that are appropriate), moon phases, or anything else that may be important on your school calendar. I know these arent decorative in the traditional sense of borders and stuff, but I will say my boss praised how I decorated my classroom with meaningful content that was not too visually stimulating (as to not overwhelm) and even brought a potential parent to see my room for a good example.
