LA Good Question: What to put above the sofa?

We've had some great questions sent to us recently and this one is no exception.

It comes from Jill:
"What should I put above the couch? I have very tall ceilings, that could stand up to a big piece of artwork. I've been trying to bring more blue in the room (with the chair and the little picture frames)"

See a larger picture and leave your suggestions after the cut:

Thanks for the question Jill. First things first, we think if you want to work more blue into the room you may want to work in some pillows on the sofa or some display items on the coffee table. A lighter blue might bring some depth to the colors in the living room. As for above the sofa, we think a grouping of photos or paintings might be better than one giant painting. But having said that, you can find great Marimmeko wall hangings at Textile Arts which could be a lot cheaper than finding a large piece of art. They come in so many different colors that you're bound to find something that will enhance the blue.

What do you guys think?
