The majority of the wall space is painted in pale grey which makes the room feel large and inviting, with pops of green showing up in strategic areas like behind the bookshelves that help bring in plenty of natural light from the large windows. A light shade of pink on the curved ceiling takes the eyes upwards to appreciate the paintings.
