- Painting on a yellow wall becomes an attractive artistic «blur»
- A vertical picture can visually increase the height of the room;
- Horizontal arrangement of paintings might increase the spatial width;
- Medium-sized square pictures do not visually alter room’s geometry;
- Large canvas or a few large images above the bed visually reduce its size.
An ideal size of the painting in the bedroom should be in match with the architectural size of the room and the chosen furniture and accessories. In urban settings, medium size paintings are a preferred choice. Height of ceilings that’s more than 3 meters allows using vertical compositions, in other cases horizontal rectangular paintings are appropriate.

It is worth remembering that a bright yellow color of the wall can suppress the light tones of the picture and distract from its subject.
