Good Questions: How To Decorate Around Chair Rail?

Lex sent us a good question. He writes: I love my living room with all it's great molding, but it's posing a problem in decorating behind my sofa. There's a rail that's about 5.5' high, right where paintings or pictures would go. The ceiling is 10.5' high, yet I feel to place art above the rail would look funny...

I also am in need of a good paint color for my walls, that would go well with the grey sofa, red chairs, and dark wood furniture. I'm not opposed to painting over my wall tree and redoing it (or something similar) at a later date. Any ideas?

Please share your tips and suggestions with Lex in the comments below...thanks!
