Cool-Colored Bedroom

In my last three apartments, I have painted my bedroom periwinkle blue. Blues and greens are cool, calming colors, good for private spaces like bedrooms and bathrooms. But to make the room more interesting—since it is visible from the living room and hallway—I hung this dynamic painting, called Off Season Smoothie, by Jim Sperber. It jumps out at visitors who enter the apartment and pass by the hallway door, but it doesn't negate the calm of the room because I can't see it when lying in bed.
