Tips on Wall Decor to Make Your TV the Center of Attention
Created by Erin Williamson
Interior designer Erin Williamson says, "I like to integrate wall-mounted TVs into the rest of the room by surrounding them with art, so the TV becomes a part of a larger gallery wall." "Anchoring the TV to the wall with a shelf, credenza, or console table gives it a sense of permanence and makes it feel more at home in the room." ”

An Artful Confusion
To paraphrase blogger Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess: "I don't really have a big desire to 100% hide my TV in my house because I don't mind seeing them in spaces." Yet, it annoys me when they dominate the space. If the TV isn't turned on and we aren't watching something, then it's nice that it disappears into the wall like this. The second function of this black edging is to draw attention to the artwork we hung above the television. "
