Preparing my son’s room was my final phase of control before the chaos. As the designer in my home I took charge of designing the furniture, considering the layout, proposing the colours, and curating the decor.
Of course confidence in design is not the same as confidence in being a new dad. So when my mother in law started enquiring about my plans, all my insecurities surfaced and I found myself tight lipped and anxious.
My subconscious solution: “Design and create the best possible cot, impress your in-laws and somehow it’ll all be ok.”
“Sylvie, we’re almost two years on and it certainly has all been ok. Thanks in huge part to you and your incredible love, for Gray and for us! We love you too! “
