This is the room I’m most pleased with right now. Not only is everything put away in its place, its main occupant just looks so cute and happy whenever she’s in it.
It was a little girl’s room before and it’s a littler girl’s room now, but looking at the old ‘before’ photos I can’t really believe it’s the same room.
Here’s the crib in a bit of context. The door immediately to its right leads to the master bedroom walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, and an identical door leads from that into the master bedroom. (To make this door work, we had its wall almost entirely rebuilt. Pity there isn’t a good before picture.) This makes is so much easier for me and James to pop in and out of her room for nighttime feeds. When Katy is older we’ll block up the sliding door with another ceiling-height cupboard like the one on the far right. And just beyond that cupboard, at a right angle, is the bedroom door.
Here’s the view and the window treatments, and a bit of the wall facing the crib. We did actually get that wall painted the same colour as the green in the Roman blinds. I’m glad we picked the colours before we knew if Katy was going to be a boy or girl, because this green looks pretty good with nearly anything.
I had the changing table / dresser copied from a design I saw in a fancy baby-goods store. It came up to about a third of what it would have cost at that store.
And together with another chunk of that green wall, here’s the single bed where James or I catch some Zs close by to Katy when she’s having a fussy night. We’re adding some fun jungle-themed decals to that wall once they arrive from Blik – more photos to follow then.
I think I’ll post bathroom pictures next. Everything else still feels like a work in progress right now…
