Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

The art looks oriental to me, and the border is ornate. IMO the bed doesn't really go with it. I think a simple wood bed would look better. Or keep the bed, and put a smaller print over it - maybe a European street scene? 

 

We actually have a large Japanese gold leaf screen with cherry blossoms above our headboard. Our bed is dark cherry. Smiley Happy

Is this a storage room?

I don't sleep near, or under, anything that can fall on me.

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

I would have much rather they used a larger headboard than the large piece of art work.

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

The size of the art behind the bed is ok with me but the Asian theme is what doesn't go with the rest of the room at all.

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

It doesn't bother me too much but the rug has to go, and I don't like the ceiling fan either. I would love to see the picture straight on, because it kind of looks like the picture isn't centered, but maybe that is because I am looking at it on an angle....

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

It appears to be oversized for the size of the room.  I don't care for the art piece anyway.....too dark and heavy.

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

I have large scale art over our bed and I love it. It's the only thing on any of the walls.

Re: Large Scale Art Behind a Headboard

Depending on what it is, I don't mind large art behind the bed... In this instance, an otherwise pretty room, but I don't like what I can see of the folding screen and I don't like the photograph...

There is something about this room that makes the picture behind the bed work.  I was looking at the other art and bedspread, etc. and it all works.  Art does not necessarily have to blend with the rest of the room but rather fit in.  I personally love a lot of black & white prints and photography and I have have pieces with color.
