Light Blue - the perfect Colour for a Bedroom

Maybe I am slowly boring you with these paintings - I hope that is not the case -  but I want to show you how sweet these could look in rooms with a basic light blue colour hue. Also this bedroom has been designed around the colour light blue which is a calming colour on one hand but also refreshing and clean. It reminds you of the sky, of clear calm water of a lake. It is cool but not cold and is certainly a colour that is very appropriate for a bedroom.

Lightness is also represented through the painting Contemplation on a Feather which I virtually added here above the bed. Btw - the suggestion of a canopy bed through the pelmet above on the wall is really charming and would add a nice frame to any painting you would choose to hang here. I also "mounted" the painting into a dark frame in order to match the colour of the bed.


In the original image there is nothing planned to be hung on the wall and this is a bit sad. A piece of art always adds some personality to a room.

The painting is acrylic on cotton and belongs to my pigeon series. I am also writing a documentary and diary about a feral pigeon family who lives on my balcony since nearly 3 years now. This diary contains many stories and photos about pigeons, who are extremely underestimated and misjudged. These birds are highly intelligent, make very funny companions and are absolutely amiable. If only more people would realize how special these birds are. Maybe you will change your mind too if you start reading my blog Pigeon Tales. You will learn a lot of things you probably did not know before.

The bedroom looks kind of unfinished without the artwork above the bed. Your painting is really pretty and intriguing :-)

I'm having a giveaway for a beautiful horse photo - hope you'll come by and enter :-)
