It is not only important to pick the right sofa but also to style it in a way that makes it pop and work with the rest of your interior design. The sofa is usually the focal point of a living room design and that means that the space above it is also the center of attention. Here are some decorating tips on how to style the space above your living room sofa, from pretty shelves to wall art.
Window: placing a sofa up against a window can frame a sofa beautifully. And when you close the curtains, you get a pretty backdrop that’s far more interesting than a plain wall.
Shelves: fill the space up with shelves but don’t forget to leave yourself enough headroom. You can also place a shelving unit with books behind the sofa, it makes for a big impact.
Art: have a single big piece of art centered above your sofa or display a series of pieces.
Gallery wall: collect all of your favorite memories above your sofa.
Mirror: hang or lean an oversized mirror behind a sofa. Mirrors add dimension, light and visual space to the living room and are also great accessory pieces.
