Empty space

We are in the process of decorating our living room / kitchen area, and we have a big empty space on the wall beside the sectional. What should we put there? A large bookshelf? A console? Help please :)

I would paint that wall behind the couch. Buy a big floor mirror and put against that wall on the open space, some pictures in the wall over the couch too and some pillows to coordinate with the wall color.good luck

Well it really depends on what your needs are. If you have a lot of books, then a bookcase would be useful. You could also place a floor lamp there with storage chest next to it., or a console with lamps. If it's a console or chest, then I'd definitely place artwork above it, and I'd make it sizeable!

We are doing a gallery wall above the couch and we already have some curtains we could use as inspiration for an accent wall and pillows. We have a light gray area rug with a modern pattern on its way too!

If you don't need the bookshelf or furniture, put a large art panel there instead of crowding it with furniture. Check out my work for ideas. I have many originals, and hundreds of configurations of canvas prints that I can print to the size you choose.

Enjoy decorating!
