I recently had a eDesign client that had a small dilemma in her living room.  She had pretty much everything already figured out in her living room, but there was one part of the space that was causing her issues.  The vaulted ceiling room had a BIG wall that needed attention.  She had tried several different things, but nothing was working.  The furnishings in sitting in front of this wall was a seating arrangement consisting of two ivory arm chairs and a small end table in between.

BIG Living Room Wall

Dealing with large vertical spaces like this can be challenging.  One large piece of art may not always be the answer.  Hanging items on a large wall may not be the total solution either.  My first suggestion was to add potted plants a little higher than the backs of her chairs to both sides and a floor lamp to the right side of this seating arrangement.  This will add visual weight to this side of the room and take away so much visible wall.

Wanting to give her some options with both different styles and varying price points, I came up with three wall gallery ideas for her to choose from.

OPTION 1

Hang a round jute rug on the wall with a round mirror mounted on the center of the rug.  Then add a little width with sconces holding flowers flanking the sides.  An arc lamp gives intimacy and is in a place where it will not be in the way.

Wall Gallery Option 1

Round Jute Rug: West Elm (similar)  |  Round Mirror: Target  |  Sconces: Pier 1 Imports (similar)  |  Faux Flowers: West Elm  |  Arc Floor Lamp: World Market  |  Lamp Shade: World Market

OPTION 2

 A true art gallery with a series of watercolor paintings bringing out the accent color in the room.  A driftwood floor lamp gives an earthy edge in contrast to the bright white frames and mats.

Wall Gallery Option 2

White Frames with Mats: Target  |  Ombre Watercolor Art: Outside In Art Studio via Etsy  |  Driftwood Floor Lamp: World Market  |  Lamp Shade:  World Market

OPTION 3

A painted color block detail with notched corners with wall pallet art and a metal tripod floor lamp.  With the paint color similar to the chair fabric, it will add interest without being overpowering.  A mix of rustic and modern play a part between the art and lamp.

Wall Gallery Option 3

Dandelion Wood Pallet Art: Rustic Tree House via Etsy  |  Tripod Floor Lamp: Target (similar)

So, which did she choose?  I will be posting a follow up a little later next week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
