The decorator is booked in for next week. He's doing the dining room on Tuesday and Thomas' bedroom on Wednesday.
I didn't think Thomas would mind what colour I chose for his room so when I asked him what he wanted I was expecting him to say he wasn't bothered. I was pretty shocked when he said purple.
He's colour blind with red and green and I know a few colours look different shades to him, so I thought he might mean more of a bluey purple, but when I showed him the chart he pointed to the brightest purple on there, making my knees buckle ever so slightly.
It is definitely not something I would have chosen but it's his room so I'm happy-ish for him to have it - on one wall. Batman and The Joker have a lot to answer for.
The name of the colour made me smile. It's called Crown Jewels. While for some it might conjure up regal images of robes, crowns and amethysts, it brings something completely different to my mind and seems very appropriate for a boy's room don't you think :)
Brace yourselves friends, there's a bright colour coming up!
