I never made a properly nursery for my girl when we lived in Japan, partly because anything remotely attractive was basically unpayable. Okay, and also because with a new baby, new country, and new house coming all at once, I couldn't really muster the energy.
This time round, though, I'm making up for lost time.
While our container is in transit and all of our worldly possessions are locked away somewhere between here and Japan, decorating projects are on hold, but I'm dreaming of getting my girl's room ready for happy afternoons of "Mama! Play cook!" and "Mama! Colouring!!!"
I see white walls. I see pops of colour. I see a galley wall. Perhaps a teepee? Touches of japanoiserie as we tip our hat to the place where my girl was born. There'll be oversized pillows in all manner of patterns. And bunting. Because, come on. We must have bunting.
Lots of happy colourful dreams! I can't wait for our shipment to arrive so that I can get started.
