The perfect Painting

I really like this sweet little bedroom. Its colours are serene, a perfect mix for mind and soul in order to have a wonderful relaxing night. But it is also a little bit boring. Artwise.

The print on the wall certainly matches the colour concept but it is boring. Even for a little room like this one you could do so much more with the right piece of art.

Now I found the perfect painting for it that would give this room some more attraction - don't you agree? Even if this is probably "only" a guestroom the painting adds an extra atmosphere. I am kind of surprised myself how a single piece on the wall can have so much impact. But I should have known...

I do not want to diminish the work of the interior designer in any way but I want to show that a single piece of art can make a lot of difference - to the better, sometimes to the worse. It is all a matter of taste, emotion and attitude. But it is worth to take time to look for the right piece.
