I get lots of emails asking for design advice. Although I don’t always have the time to specifically source items for people, I would at least like to post about some of the same design dilemmas I see over and over again and to hopefully offer up some general advice.
A reader recently sent me pictures of this apartment that’s she’s renting and the vast space above her sofa that’s calling for art. . . or something grand.
Big walls are scary things to tackle. One of the biggest mistakes I see is hanging something that’s too small and actually makes the wall look more awkward. If you have one of these huge “above the sofa” walls, here are some possible options:
On a side note, I also like the look of wall lamps flanking art. They also help to fill visual space are provide great task lighting. It also allows you to forego bulky side tables if you don’t really need them.
