The narrator is upset about John’s choice of bedroom for her. The narrator prefers a lovely room downstairs that has nice decorations and a window overlooking the garden. However, John argues that the room is too small because it cannot fit two separate beds. He selects instead the nursery room (as indicated by the bars on the windows for children). A big room, the nursery has windows on all sides and allows plenty of sunshine. However, the wallpaper in the room - stripped off in two places - has a hideous, chaotic, yellow pattern, and the narrator can barely stand to look at it. John then enters the room and the narrator puts away her journal, as he hates for her to write.
