|The purple really is pretty subdued.|
When my in-laws brought it over the next day I was nervous to see what it was. Especially to see what the colors were. I opened it after they left. There have been few times in my life where I've felt the kind of relief that washed over me when I opened the box. It was a picture of the Mt. Timpanogos temple, where my hubby and I were married. I love that building. And the "purple flower in the corner"? Well, you can the picture below. Between the sky and the flowers the picture was almost certain to go with any purple I might have chosen. After I found that I totally loved the picture I talked to my mother in law about what I had understood from what I'd been told. Both my husband and I had completely misunderstood her. All three of us had a good laugh. I had to wonder what I was so worried about. I've seen how her house is decorated and I like her choice in color and art.
Now the picture hangs beautifully in our front room. I really do love it. It looks fabulous with my purple walls.
Now I just have to wait until we can afford the living room set I want to go in here. It will look stunning. Our current couch is in the post-relative style (given to us for free by our relatives and not really my style, but in good repair) and makes for comfy seating until the budget opens up a little more. Donations are gladly accepted. ;) Did I mention that I love my purple walls? They'll look great with crown molding and more pictures.
