An elegant Bedroom with a Volcano on the Wall

You might have seen this elegant bedroom already a couple of times. Published in Southern Accents, it is now in the room gallery archives of MyHomeIdeas. But have you ever thought about adding something to this room? A painting f.e. to the wall above the headboard?

For quite some time I thought that there was something missing because the eye needs an object to focus on, an anchor. Although this room is truly elegant and emanates a certain tranquility and ease of mind through the wonderful cool palette of colours there is a bit too much tranquility for my feeling. I thought it (the room) would need a bit of complementary element. One of my favourite silk paintings - Haleakala - would be the perfect match - wouldn't it? But see for yourself what happens with this room if...

The painting has been inspired by the wonderful landscapes on the Hawaiian Islands, especially by Maui's volcano landscapes of the Haleakala. If you would like to know more about the painting, it's "making of" and detail images check this link. Only in the details you can see the true contents of this painting.
