2. Bedroom

The bedroom is an essential space in any house, serving as a personal sanctuary for individuals and couples alike. The bedroom tends to be the most private corner of a home since it gives people their own private space. It’s a spot where you can escape from the outside world, unwind in peace, and do things you like to do, like read or listen to music. For a comfortable and inviting bedroom go for calming, blue tones & natural colours. Landscapes, nature, sea or waterfall (water elements paintings), colours that are towards cool colours, blues, greens, and whites to make your mind peaceful. In nature, water flows to low places, gathers its power, and nurtures life. Cosier environments promote better sleep and overall well-being.

According to Vaastu the painting depicts pure love and can increase harmony among two people residing together.
