It's A Wrap!

After months' of painstaking search for a piece of blue/green-color-tone artwork to neutralize our golden dining room walls, after bouncing among classic portrait/social scenes to chinoiserie prints to impressionism oil paintings, I finally settled for a modern abstract/representation piece by Georgia O'Keefe named "From the Lake No. 1". She seemed to use a lot of blue and green color family in her artworks, and her abstract styles were not too radical or over-the-top.

This is a peek from the foyer into the dining room. I am not keen on the golden wall color (I thought it'd turn out more buttery than gold) but am too tired to change it now. I will live with it for a while, and decide if I want to repaint or wallpaper it. Note I also replaced the sliding mirror closet doors -- you can't have a mirror closet door at the entrance of a million-dollar home, right? :-D
This is Georgia O'Keefe's From the Lake No. 1 (1924) art print in a dark wood frame with linen liner. Though it was initially done in oil, the lively flow and transition of the colors made it so fluid that it appeared watercolor. The painting on the wall "Paris Walk - Snow" was done by none other than yours truly.
Mine exhibited side-by-side to Georgia O'Keefe's: it could only happen in my dreams and my home. :-)
The lime color dupioni shade lamps are glowing in golden tone which make the walls even yellow-er. :-(
