As you all know, Charlotte has many, many medical diagnoses (ME, fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, non epileptic seizure disorder, tic disorder and functional neurological disorder with a hallucinogenic component, generalised anxiety disorder…). In an attempt to do something, anything, which might help her, I decided to turn her bedroom into a haven of peace and tranquillity. I researched the colours which seem to calm and relax. Between us we chose to go with a pale lemon and duck egg blue.
First, we painted it a pale sunshiny colour:
Next we painted the book case with a chalky duck egg paint:
I sewed together four curtains to make a much thicker pair, which looked so much better:
And added a few bits and pieces to complete the look. At least, Gary did on account of the fact that he won’t let me near his drill 😢
I shall let the photos do much of the talking:
I’m so pleased with the results. It is warm yet very calming. The girls love it and hopefully it will be a lovely relaxing place for Charlotte to come and rest in when she is feeling rough.
