One of the tricks to see if you have a good composition is to cover up one half of the image, and see if it's still (over all) interesting. Then check the other half, both horizontal and vertically. Looking at the bottom half, I'm thinking maybe some design/pattern in the carpet to lead your eye into the painting?
Honestly, though, this immediately reminded me of some ancient video games... sorry... but it does bring back some good memories :-)
