Decorating Above the Couch

Decorating the wall above a couch can be tricky.

Decorating the wall above a couch in a room with a vaulted ceiling can be even trickier. In fact, if it’s not done well, it has the potential to be an eyesore.

So, if you are looking for something to put above the couch other than a large mirror or picture, here’s an idea you might want to try. (Pardon all the dust!)

When we built our home seven years ago, I purchased a couple of wood shelves and brackets from Target. Then I just rearranged some of my most loved and collected objects around until I liked how it looked.

It’s a bit unexpected and it gives some much-needed interest to an otherwise empty expanse of wall in our living room.

A common mistake a lot of people make is to hang things way too high. In my opinion, one of the reasons the shelves work so well here is that they definitely “relate” to the couch below it.

Oftentimes, the best way to decorate a room is to surround yourself with the things you love and have collected over time.

When family and friends visit, you want them to feel comfortable and welcome – even if you forgot to dust.
