When we bought this house 13 years ago, I made the room next to ours a nursery for the baby. Evan4 was 3 months old when we moved in. It had baby blue walls with a wallpaper frieze under the picture rail of teddy bears. It was lovely.
I planted a tree fern outside the window to soften the outlook. It’s on the dark southern side of the house and even in the drought, it’s thriving.
David2 has been living in this room for a couple of years now. The teddy bears disappeared right away, but he put up with the baby blue walls until now.
Here’s the feature wall.
He’s put the head of his bed and his tallboy up against it.
His piano lives at the other end of the room.
This painting was one we bought in Bali. David2 has always loved it. When I moved the bookshelf into the dining room the picture had to be moved. It looks as if it was meant to be in that room next to that feature wall.
The last thing that needs to be done is for me to photocopy lots of sheet music. David2 wants to dye it with tea and stick it up all over the walls between the picture rails and the roof. He saw it years ago on one of those renovation programs and he’s never forgotten it. (I’m just hoping that it won’t be too hard to remove when the room eventually needs repainting…)
He’s happy. This room looks so much more like him.
