Violet Twist

There was a bit of indecisiveness going 'round with what color to choose for Jade's room.  Pink?  The hubby said no.  I was swayed toward soft blues for awhile.  I was trying to match the color to my Dancing Stars quilt to be honest.  I was looking at some fabric online (shocking)  and found the color periwinkle.  Showed it to the hubby and he agreed that a shade of purple would work!  It is always a huge plus to have both parties in agreement.  I went to Lowes and looked at some paint chips to find periwinkle.  The one that they carried wasn't exactly the right shade I was envisioning.  I grabbed some that were similar and brought them home.

Isn't it a breath of fresh air with a lingering scent of lilac perhaps.  I. love. it.  Just in case you couldn't tell that already---hehehehe  Valspar Violet Twist I love you!!!!!!

I adore her room with all the light streaming in every morning and my nice,new comfy rocker/glider I bought for a steal from Craigslist.  (See the Dancing Stars quilt??)

Originally, hubby was going to paint one wall and do a mural across it.  The violet was going to clash with the other 3 tan walls so we had to nix that idea.  I told him well since you are painting the whole room then let's skip the mural and do one in Ayden's room instead.  He is 6 yrs old and will be able to appreciate it:):)  I LOVE THIS MAN!  He went ahead and did a quick butterfly sketch with flowers instead and surprised me!

I am 36 weeks and I have an appointment today with my doctor to see where Jade is hanging out in my belly;)  I will keep ya'll updated!

Hugs!

It looks like you are ready to go now. I love the little mural. I think doing the whole room was a good idea.
