Above the Sofa

Deciding what to put above your sofa can be a daunting task because it's an important focal point of the living room and there are a lot of options on what to do. Take it from someone whose sofa wall has been bare for longer than she'd like to admit, finding the perfect thing can take some time. It's important to keep scale in mind, you don't want to put anything too small or too large or it just won't look right. Here are a couple of ideas I like that would definately spruce up your space:

A funky informal arrangement of framed art & sculpture

A formal grid of similar photos or art

An eclectic art display and folding screen to break up some of the large space

Love this! Large canvases with a bold, graphic design

Simple, centered art looks perfect with the swinging arm lamps

One mirror or a group of mirrors adds depth to the room

Bookcases or shelves would add color and function

Wallpaper framed as a piece of art

One large painted canvas fills the entire space

Or maybe you don't have this problem because you have a window above the sofa, lucky you!
