– Don’t buy a flat screen too large for your space.
– Be creative with placement, it doesn’t have to where it has always been.
Here’s a great example by Emily Clark, designer and blogger. By using a grouping of black and white framed art, the flat screen becomes part of the grouping. If you don’t follow Emily’s blog, you should, go check it out!
Placing a dark panel behind the flat screen can unify the television with the
furniture and create height a focal point in the room. The black panel
balances the large glass window otherwise, the flat screen would look
lost on the wall. Something about this look is so zen!
Painting the wall dark makes this flat screen disappear.
Here they have chosen to make the focal point the fabulous
marble surround of the fireplace.
By framing the screen with moulding the flat screen
becomes part of the design element of the wall like paneling.
I love the look of this room!
I think it is because the accessories are so well chosen. The pair of simple white ceramic ginger jars
positioned on either side of the flat screen, add soft curves and keep the wall interesting.
I adore the covered books in the bookcase and those cute little elephants.
Just the right design elements without being too distracting for the viewer.
