You don't have to decorate up to the ceiling. Get a large framed print or nice painting from Hang painting 5 or 6 inches over sofa

Please show pics of your room, not the ceiling.

Or just one large piece of art if you are into minimal design.

Paintings by Kirsten Elizabeth Gilmore
If you do opt for one big painting, my suggestion would be to take some painter's tape (blue, "low tack" tape from the hardware store).Then, try out different sizes of rectangles that would fit well visually over your size couch. That sort of tape won't peel paint off your wall. Then, if you go onto etsy, you will know what size you need.

Be willing to be a little flexible about, though, as artists can often offer standard sizes for less than custom sizes. For instance, I offer 2ft x 3ft paintings (24"x36") for much less than 24"x26" paintings. Even though the latter dimensions are smaller, that size would require hand-stretching, and I can't buy them in bulk, so the materials cost more and the process takes more time.

Just by eye, I'm guessing 30"x40" or 24"x48" might fit well horizontally across the top of your sofa, but you would really need to see it well with the blue tape to know for sure.
or, etsy store:
