Full Width Image with CSS

I feel really dumb but I cannot get my header image to be full width. I've researched all the various CSS articles on this which include max-width, background-cover...etc. Yet I can't get my CSS to work.
This is element I'm trying to make full width ( I think):

#site-logo .cs-logo1x

Site: http://beloveden.com

 I cannot figure out why the image won't go full screen. Any help appreciated.

You have to specifically define 100% width on the parent and child elements, in this case the anchor and img.

style.css, line 801:

#site-logo a {
    display: inline-block;
    width: 100%;
}

style.css, line 822:

#site-logo .cs-logo1x {
    display: inline-block !important;
    width: 100%;
}

Thank you so much Tom. How did you know that the anchor was the parent?

You're welcome.

Look at the page in any browser and open the web inspector (like Firebug in Firefox). You will see how the page is being interpreted by the browser regardless of whether the content is being generated dynamically or it's pure HTML markup. I don't know how that image inside the anchor looks on the back end, but for troubleshooting styling problems like this, use a web inspector so you can look directly at the DOM tree of the rendered page. The anchor is clearly the parent of the image from that view.
