The writers did try and balance the character a bit more by having him put up the drawings of his son (an obvious opposite to what we know of Picard).

In some ways he had a lot to live up to, replacing the living legend of Picard on the flagship of the Federation, he wanted to change the shift rotations and having as he put it 'a certain formality on the bridge' in terms of Troi's uniform to make his mark I reckon, it must have worked on his old ship for him to want to change it so to him he's just settling in and aiming to do things his way, not imitate Picard. So yeah I think Riker was a bit out of line.
