This is a room that needs art on the walls. I have designed the color scheme in this room and in the following photos will demonstrate different artworks by me that would work well in this space. I am using my own art here as not to violate anyone's copyrights, but I can make similar designs with any artist's work that would be considered for any space, as long as a photo of the room with the wall for art is available. This is a great way to figure out the right art for any space.

Here above are more options from The Joy of Design Mandala Series Puzzles by Helena Tiainen. Nearly endless variations are possible based on the likes of the home owner/renter/business owner. The mood that is created by the selected art is what defines the final choices. Whether one desires a dramatic air or a room that feels like a sanctuary, anything is possible with the right art.
