Here's my 9 foot long, purple velvet couch. Yes, I picked the fabric out myself and had it reupholstered that way on purpose and then went on to pick out apple green chairs ;) So far I haven't gotten further than that but eventually I'll have a theme of purple, apple green and aqua (like the throw on the chair) as the color scheme.
Right now textiles mom picked up in Guatemala adds lots of color. In the small black frame under the new painting is a cherished rose sculpture made by my great grandmother, a hand turned bowl made by my father- in law- holds a beeswax candle on the coffee table and there are books everywhere.
DJ, thanks for the idea for today's post. Last post I admitted to liking my new painting so much in part because it matches the sofa. DJ suggested I show a photo. This Saturday the painting goes to my gallery, Terre Verde in Moncton so it's time to get out more purple paint.
