I cannot wait to get stuck in to designing and decorating the baby’s room. Calling it a nursery sounds weird and makes me think of wet nurses and nannies, so it will just be called the baby’s room. At the moment, the room itself has no flooring, unsanded walls that need painting and a bare bulb as a light. We have a fair way to go with the house but will get it finished in time (goddamn it!). The room itself is pretty big but quite dark as it only has one small window. This will probably be good as it will stay nice and dark when the baby is sleeping, but I don’t want it to feel like a dungeon.
There are loads of lovely baby room images out there – here are some of my faves.
