I am a tough sell when it comes to home decor. I have a weakness for office supplies, organizational tools, and any cooking gadget. But when it comes to home decor, I do not bend easily to much of anything. I will wait months, and even years, to find just the right thing to fit my idea of what it is I want my home to look like. And, to boot, I have a much higher degree of skepticism when it comes to religiously-themed items.
To say the least, I am particular. That said, when I opened the box to this wall-hanging, I was at work. Twenty minutes later, I went home for lunch, and before even putting down my bag, I was hanging this on my wall.
I knew the exact place for it–near the front door, over my shoes.
I knew what I wanted there–a reminder of how I should be thinking throughout the day.
I knew what I wanted it to look like–stark against the white walls, complementary to my I-didn’t-choose-it blue kitchen, but classic with a touch of casual elegance to fit with my decorating approach.
This UrbanSoul wall-hanging fit every single one of those categories. It’s charcoal color is not a solid charcoal, but a subtle mix of blacks and greys to give it an overall “feel” of dark charcoal. The creatively used font allows for a bit of interest without being too fussy. And the charcoal and white color scheme fit perfectly to pull in the colors from my living room to seem seamless through my kitchen and out the front door.
It took me 6 months to begin hanging pictures in my current home. It took me five minutes to hang this one. For me, that is a raging success!
