on how to avoid mistakes with designing your living room.

1. Hanging Art Incorrectly

The Mistake: Hanging artwork at an inconsistent height or at "eye level," which can vary greatly depending on who you ask.

The Fix: The center line of your art should be 60 inches above the floor, whether it’s a single piece or a grouping. This standard height creates visual harmony and ensures your art is neither too high nor too low.

Tip for Philadelphia Homes: In the diverse architectural styles of Philadelphia, from classic Victorian to sleek modern lofts, maintaining a consistent height for artwork can unify the space and add a touch of sophistication.

2. Wrong Size Art Over the Sofa

The Mistake: Choosing artwork that is too large or too small for the space above your sofa.

The Fix: Ideally, art should be around 2/3 the width of the sofa, but no more than 80% to keep the proportions balanced.

Tip for Philadelphia Homes: With varying living room sizes in Philly's eclectic homes, this rule helps maintain visual balance whether you’re in a spacious suburban home or a cozy city apartment.

3. Wrong Size Coffee Table

The Mistake: Selecting a coffee table that doesn’t match the scale of your sofa, either too small or too large.

The Fix: Aim for a coffee table that is about 2/3 the length of your sofa. This proportionate approach ensures the table serves its purpose without overwhelming the room or feeling insignificant.

Tip for Philadelphia Homes: Given the mix of old-world charm and modern living in Philadelphia, this guideline ensures your coffee table fits perfectly, whether you're entertaining in a historic townhome or relaxing in a contemporary condo.
