Words from mum: Lena has set up camp in the box room, so although I had a huge number of decorating ideas, I didn’t want to swamp what is a fairly small space. We want to be able to get as long as possible from the décor, so tried to avoid too much pink in the permanent parts – although she’s a very girlie girl at the moment. The walls are one of my very favourite colours, and although it was hard to get the shade I really wanted, I found it after a lot of tester patches! We have a bed for when Lena’s ready for it, which is the same colour as the cot and will sit under the window.
