Q: Our taste is quite modern, but we inherited a busily patterned yet good-quality sofa that we have to live with for the time being. What should we hang on the wall above it?

Tamara says....
Simplicity is key. Try one or two black and white photos (or a very neat gallery-style row), at least 20 inches high, starting at about 10 inches above the back of the sofa. You may also want to consider a slipcover—they can be expensive to have custom-made, but you can find some more affordable ones at large linen and home stores.
