Emily A. Clark shares what to do with that big, blank wall behind your sofa. While every living room configuration can be a little different, she offers a few tips for what you could do with that blank wall behind your sofa. Now, you’ve likely heard her first tip before, she suggests bringing your sofa out and away from the wall. Even a few inches away from the wall can make your living room can make a big difference. You don’t want your living room to look like a furniture store with furniture lining the outside perimeter of the room. Your goal here isn’t necessarily to have the most floor space possible but to instead create a space that feels more cozy and conversational. Once you’ve pulled your sofa away from the wall, Emily’s second tip is to think about furniture in terms of layers. In her living room, she used two single bookcases and put a mirror in between to open up the space. On either end of the sofa, Emily placed two small end tables and lamps. Finally, Emily’s third tip is to think vertically. A sofa’s overall shape is naturally horizontal, so you don’t want to duplicate that above the sofa. Instead, think up and down. Whether it’s a pretty piece of art or a vertical mirror or even a tall gallery wall. Think up so your wall automatically seems taller and your room seems more grand in scale.
