Once I saw a picture of Alexandra's mauve boudoir and it had that same bed. Maybe OTMAA stayed with their mother when they were sick?

Didn't the mauve budoir have striped wallpaper, though?

It seems to me the children were sequestered in a particular room on the second floor when they were ill -- I've read in more than one place that when they all had measles, Alix had a difficult time with the stairs after the electricity had been cut. I want to say the room was at the end of the wing, somewhere near the playrrom, perhaps?

Somewhere on this website--your search would begin with the subjects listed on the home page--there's a statement that a special room was used as a children's "sick room" or isolation room. I believe it was adjacent the room where Alexandra nursed, for many years, the terminally ill woman who had served as her lady-in-waiting.
