10 ways to fill the space above your sofa
A to Z
Bringing harmony into anything is a little difficult especially if you wish to incorporate or work with different elements. But that does not mean it’s something impossible to do.
Here we have all together blending perfectly together into each other from wall art to printables and mirror, wall hangings and macramé style wall hanging.
I am all in for this look hence this will be my number one for now.
Aesthetic world map
I absolutely love to travel and do that whenever I get the chance. Anesthetic world map hanging right above my favorite couch is such a beautiful feeling. I can always look at it and work even harder to make my way to some island or to the top of the mountains.
It not only looks beautiful but can be quite a healthy addition to your house.
Dishes around a frame
Are you a food lover like I am and wish to see those beautiful dishes lying around everywhere literally on the wall as well? Then why wait when this actually is a wonderful decoration idea which looks absolutely stunning. Take out all those beautiful pieces and hang them around a wall art.
Filling a space was never that simple, isn’t it?
Mirrors are a great way to make a space look bigger as they work as reflectors and bring in more light making a space look more open and big.
Although mirrors themselves look cool enough but if you wish you can pair them up with some wall hangings of your choice.
If you want a boho-chic aesthetic, then a macramé is a hallmark piece to do so. Its simplicity is what clicks and attracts eyes to look at it. Work on it to infuse it with different patterns, plants, and other light features to really bring that all together into a great wall décor above your couch. Look at what works best for you as you can find them in a number of different styles and sizes.
Wooden wall mount art
Wood is honestly so so beautiful and I love absolutely everything about it.
Not only does it look good as furniture but gives altogether such a brilliant modern vibe as a 3D wall art. I can spend all my money to have this piece there on my wall next to my couch. How can something be so simple yet vibrant and beautiful and attract so much!
Well, we won’t be committing an actual criminal activity but I loved the look and thought of sharing it with you guys. If you are a fan of peaky blinders, criminal minds, prison break, and breaking bad that you will also fall in love with this look.
The handcuffs and chains look so mesmerizing although only on that wall and not on the hands for real lol. And a simple wall clock to complete the look.
Floating shelves in the wall
Floating shelves are a great way to cover that vertical and horizontal space but these amazing floating shelves within the wall are absolutely amazing.
Great to keep your books that have been lying everywhere without an actual home. Well, they have one now and its sure is a cozy one within the wall.
Floating shelves and mirror duo
There can be a million ways to use something and in the same way, you can create a fusion look with mirrors and floating shelves that are absolutely stunning.
Mirrors give a clean open vibe and shelves compliment that vibe like nothing else.
Neon signs and art
Some of you may consider neon lights only for outdoor use but they are on another level when placed inside the home. Not only do they look aesthetic but at the same time have such a cool modern vibe.
You can have them custom made into anything you like. It can be your favorite quote or sign or maybe a fusion of neon lights and art.
Neon teams up with paints
I love painting on walls, there is just so much space to work with and you can make anything colorful and turn it into an abstract piece of art. Hang a neon sign there among the art and voila you have something unique above your couch.
And the possibilities are endless like you can add mirrors vertically to the space or maybe think of something else to make the space pop.
Play with shapes
Not everything needs to of the same size and shape, it is your creativity to create a balance between them.
Take vintage frames of different shapes and align them in such an order that creates a beautifully symmetrical look that is pleasing to look at.
In the digital world that we live in today printables have become so common and are used almost everywhere to bring a pop of color to the surroundings. And we will also do the same.
Get some amazing printables and frame them to put them on a floating shelf above your couch.
Trust me it’s that simple and looks so amazing that the look is to die for.
