Q. Deb, my husband and I disagree on the placement of a picture in our bedroom. Should the main picture be on the wall over the bed or on the wall across from the foot of the bed? Thanks for your help.
A. To answer your question,in a bedroom, the bed is usually the focal point. A focal point is the area in a room that draws your eye first. Usually, the main artwork or decoration is placed over the bed to highlight the bed. Hope this helps!
I also wanted to take this opportunity to let readers know about the Maryland Green Designer Show Home, which will be open to the public Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 4-Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The proceeds from the show home will be

Local interior designers/decorators, including me, have designed rooms in the house to showcase this environmentally friendly home located in the Preserve at Severn Run, 1760 Holladay Park Road, Gambrills, Md. 21054.
