mr. gorbachev, break up this wall!

living room (small)
This is my living room, or at least the right most 70% of it. My living room is an 11x21" box, and the entire southern wall is blank. 21 feet of blank! I know frames should go on this wall, but I don't know where, and I don't know what it ought to look like in the end. I don't want to go overboard with holes and shelving, since we are moving in 6-8 months. I was thinking of getting 2-3 large posters to hang behind the TV, and then maybe I could have a small cluster of photographs and prints in line with the dining room table. What do you think? I'm stumped.

Please excuse the mess! I always forget to clean up before I take photos of my apartment!

  1. Or you could get some of those cool vinyl wall stickers you see everywhere. :) That would be super-easy with the move in the not-too-distant future.

  2. Can you paint? I would paint a beige/cream/off white/tan (that family of color) vertical rectangle across from the dining room table and a horizontal, bigger rectangle in the living room area, then hang the pictures and paintings within those rectangles, which would give definition to both "rooms". I don't know if that makes sense without a drawing...
