In this master bedroom of a executive HDB flat, we customised a beautiful painting of the Fenghuang. This painting composition has very positive connotations. It is a symbol of high virtue and grace. The Fenghuang also symbolizes the union of yin and yang.
In ancient China, they can often be found in the decorations for weddings or royalty, along with dragons. This is because the Chinese considered the dragon and phoenix symbolic of blissful relations between husband and wife, another common yin and yang metaphor.
We contrast the painting against the bold black coloured wall by having a golden border for the painting which gave it a rich look.
