Ideas for the space above piano - want to use 2 prints, but add color?

The wall above the piano is the focal point for our living room and we'd love to treat it like a mantle and really pull the room together.

Here's the puzzle: we want to incorporate the ART canvas (shown leaning above the piano) and the world map canvas I've posted, but also add a pop of color so it's not all black and white. Any brilliant ideas for putting those two prints together in a collage-like way that would also brighten up the area but not look too busy? We have some pops of red/orange elsewhere in the living room that could be nice to tie in.

Thank you in advance, it has been sitting bare for months because we are stumped!

I'm concerned with the fact that your piano is on an exterior wall which is bad for their health. If you have a larger expanse of interior wall, I think the art can be worked out and the piano can be saved from serious complications. Use the comment box here to attach more images of your space.

That's really the only place that the piano can live. Any other thoughts?

I would go with an ombré painting style with the three colors i see in the room. A sponge like transition between grey blue, orange and red in any order you feel would look the best. An example is in the attachment but I think it will look just fine with the different shades of color your living room has!

Yes. A bold color just on this wall

I suggest painting the wall behind the piano orange. Hang the two pieces of art ... One over the other.... And add one simple accessory at one side of the piano. Simple and dramatic!
