The Above the Couch Conundrum

I've lived in this condo for over two years. Two years!! I actually can't believe it!! Jeremy and I bought this place not long after we got engaged and I moved in and waited impatiently for our wedding and my permanent roommate to move in. Over the past few years we've updated a few things around the condo, but there's one spot that I keep avoiding. The gigantic wall over the couch.

It's a blank slate.  A giant blank slate and I have no idea what to do with it!!

Here are some things that I've thought about: 

A Gallery Wall


The problem... I need to gather a whole lot of prints, frames, pictures, and that can get pretty pricey.

Honeycomb Shelves


I actually think this might be my favorite option. The problem... we'd have to build them which is pretty hard to do when you live in a condo.

A Shelf 


Just one ledge shelf. I don't think that would be too hard. The problem... this one is the same issue as the Gallery Wall. Gathering prints, pictures, frames, etc.

A Map

The problem... I'd have to find one. Hmmm, anybody have any leads?

Do you see my problem? Maybe there are tooooo many things that I can do with the space above the couch. Anybody have any tips, ideas, anything? Help?


  1. I love the idea of a gallery wall over the couch! We have a photo ledge above ours!

  2. We have the same problem. I'm leaning towards two large (36x36) canvases on ours, but your ceilings are so high, I'd go with the gallery wall/ ledge! Something to keep the focal point closer to the couch.

  3. I love all of those ideas. I honestly don't think you could go wrong. I love the map idea though, it's very unique!! Can't wait to see what you do.

  4. My place is so undecorated and has been for 3 years. I'm indecisive and worry about the expense of decorating too. So now I'm looking at minimalist decorating.

  5. My votes from pinterest...clocks, plates, ceiling medallions.

  6. We also had a huge blank wall behind our couch and I settled on a gallery wall and haven't looked back since! I also like the idea of shelves but sometimes I worry that we would bump them by accident. Either way, I don't think you can go wrong by pulling something you love behind the couch

  7. You can always make the art yourself. It wouldn't be that difficult, and then the art would go together - and it would be cheaper!

  8. My hubby and I are moving to Memphis in May! Any ideas of some great places to live downtown? Thanks!

    It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called dr emu, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of dr emu, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.
