An earthy bedroom deserves a warm landscape painting of birch trees

Most of House Beautiful‘s recommendations for the best paint colors for your bedroom include pale pastel shades of green and shades of beige. So the one outlier, a recommendation for this tomato red, really stands out.

Red makes a bedroom warm

This red would look sensational in a master bedroom or a man’s bachelor pad. The color is masculine yet welcoming to all.

As designer Timothy Corrigan says: “I wouldn’t normally think of using red for a bedroom, but this burnt red is so subtle and complex that you can’t help but feel embraced by its warmth. There’s an echo of Pompeii–but it also has a totally contemporary vibe that makes it right for today.”

Bring the outdoors in

Bring the outdoors in with an original watercolor landscape painting. This tree art pictures birch trees ( or aspen trees) with the glorious red and yellow fall foliage.
The watercolor landscape painting would look good anywhere that you want to remember the joys of the outdoors. The tree painting is an ORIGINAL watercolor.
