The artwork in the original photo has been digitally replaced with tree art for sale in this listing. Decorator Katillac says "I decorate with the colors of my gemstones!" The dominate color in this bedroom is aquamarine, which "symbolizes flow and harmony while being vivid enough to be sexy." There is a little of this same color outlining the trees in the painting, which also gives harmony to the artwork. The designer intended the bedroom to be sexy, sublime and decadent. She also adds "Color and light nourish us, fight disease...ask your body what color you need to feel better."
