How to Decorate around a TV

As a home owner, finding ways to decorate around our tv's can be challenging.  Below are a few tips to help you become creative while not having your tv dominate a wall. 


“I like to integrate wall-mounted TVs into the rest of the room by surrounding them with art, so that the TV becomes a part of a larger gallery wall,” says interior designer Erin Williamson. “Adding a shelf, credenza, or console table below the TV anchors it to the space and lends a sense of permanence.”

Cuban-born, Florida-based interior designer Maite Granda chose a frame-style TV mounted in a custom built-in wall unit. The beachy scene looks like a photograph when not in use that complements the setting and overall design.

In this living room design from LA Designer Affair, the TV wall is a focal point but not the main event thanks to a deep blue adjacent wall with custom paneling and bold artwork keeps the TV from dominating the room. In addition, hanging decorative baskets above the TV draws the eye up.

Blogger Emma Chapman from A Beautiful Mess writes that her favorite accent wall décor to hide a TV involves hanging empty thrifted picture frames and painting the whole thing black. "I love how the TV kind of disappears into the space," she writes, "but when it’s on and in use it’s actually even more visible with the darker background."

Interior designer Gabriele Pizzale of Pizzale Design housed the TV in this open plan living and dining room in a taupe-colored wall unit with plenty of drawers and shelving filled with objects and art that allows the TV to recede from view when the screen is dark.

In this living room from Pizzale Design, a pair of framed prints on either side of the TV helps to create balance and tone down the TV.
