So we set about doing a little decorating. And boy do I have the right husband for this! Brett took pictures of the wall, manipulated them on the computer with photo shop, and designed a fun graphic mural for our living room. The colors were risky, and I was a little hesitant, but Brett's confidence with color is unsurpassed, and I have to say he was right. There were moments (like after the third time going back to the paint souq with the same can of paint and asking them to try and actually mix the color we ordered) when even he lost hope that we could pull it off. What follows is the true adventure of home improvement. (Thanks goes to Abbey for providing the video with her new birthday camera.)
It might not be what we would paint in our house back in Utah, but in Qatar it works. It has been a fun project - probably more fun for me and more work for Brett. The best part is being able to show off my husband's artistic talents. He rocks!!
