My son wanted a fire truck for his second birthday. My mother bought him a ‘Bedroom Colour Consult’ with Xavier (no last name).

His team spilled into my son’s room.

‘I’ve always liked chevrons…’ I offered.

Xavier scoffed. ‘Oh, Darling! Chevrons are sooooo 2008.’

Xavier’s assistant looked at his mobile phone and squealed with delight. ‘They revealed Prince George’s new nursery design!’

Xavier snatched the phone off him.

His jaw dropped.

‘Team! Change of plans. Bed goes there, get me one of those mirrored chandeliers and Dominic-‘

‘Yes?’

‘We’re gonna need a LOT of chevrons.’
