What to do with this space?

I have this open ledge in my entry that needs a personal touch- any ideas are welcome. The vase pictures is not meant to be kept up there- it is just up there until I put it somewhere else :)

Thanks!

What I have read rather consistently on this site is that one should do nothing at such heights. But my tall pieces of furniture looked so bare, especially now that I have vaulted ceilings. After trying many different objects/collections, even photos on or above, I have finally left the space empty long enough that I actually like it now! It will be interesting to read other comments.

What an odd little space. I would definitely leave it bare to avoid calling attention to it. In fact, I would find another place for the plaque over the door. Anything to keep the eye from going there.

Add more trim to top of closet to give it a more finished look.

OOOPs, easle won't work, too slanted and won't be at the correct angle. So, I suggest two large wicker and iron trimmed baskets. Different sizes. ... Or ... a fabric bunched with three large vases.
