When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.
If you plan to use it as the primary sleeping surface for yourself, look into the type of mattress that comes with it. As you are no doubt aware, sleepers come with many different types of mattresses, some using specialty materials, some come with inner-springs and others are air beds. Try and find one with a mattress type you are happy using. Also look for a mechanism that opens and closes easily.
Maps are a fantastic way to add a sense of history to a room. They’re also great for paying homage to the places you've been or places you want to go. When it comes to decorating with maps you have a ton of options - colorful, black and white, sepia toned, new, vintage, city, country, transit, nautical - the list goes on.
