Your couch is probably the focal point of your living room, and that means that whatever's going on on the wall above the couch is also the center of attention. It's an important — and somewhat intimidating — spot to fill because it's so central and so big. So we've rounded up a few ideas for what to do with this prime piece of visual real estate.
Fill it up with shelves.

Hang a single big piece of art.

Display a series of 2 or 3 pieces.

Create a gallery wall.

Hang (or lean) an oversized mirror.

Add a picture ledge.
