Art Above the Sofa
"Art should never be the same width as the sofa," advises Decorator Brad Ford. A better setup: Choose a painting or a print that's two-thirds as wide as the couch, and position it so that its midpoint is about 60 inches from the floor and centered. The bottom edge should be 8 to 10 inches above the sofa back.
Art Above the Bed
"After the bed itself, the wall above the bed is the most visible real estate in the room, so don't leave it empty," says Designer Elaine Griffin. "Fill it with something that makes you smile." The art should occupy no less than two-thirds of the area above the headboard but not extend beyond its edges. Steer clear of minuscule dimensions "unless you have a four-poster bed, which is already busy. In that case, a small, simple piece hung low works well."
