This was written in the “The Yellow Wall-Paper”. P61

“The furniture in this room is no worse than inharmonious, however, for we had to bring all from downstairs. I suppose when this was used as a playroom they has to take the nursery things out, and no wonder! I never saw such ravages as the children have made here.”

The narrator is describing how the furniture in the room does not look pleasant, to be in used. She assumes that the children who were her before is the reason why the furniture may look this way. Due to the major damage, she thought it may be a playroom which can mean there was a lot ramping and action going on in the room.
