Design that makes a difference
TV…the Tube…Telly…whatever you choose to call it – it seems to take a prominent place in most of our homes. While the TV can be a window into the international news scene, an escape into a fantasy world, a portal to sports paradise it can also be a giant eye-sore. I, personally, am not a big TV watcher. In fact if it were up to me, I wouldn’t own a television at all. However, I do realize that a TV-free home is quite the rarity. SO…as one seeking to create a more lovely environment in which to live, love, and grow I am faced with the challenge of dealing with this giant black contraption. Throughout the years I have seen many different ways to cover up, disguise, and hide these boxes. Each space where a TV makes it’s home has different requirements for equipment, space, and storage…so each one truly needs to be addressed as an individual. That being said – here are a few of my recent favorite entertainment spaces that create beauty as much as function:
Framing out your TV can give it a much more sophistocated feel than leaving it bare against the wall.
However you choose to approach your entertainment – always keep in mind that the most important part of entertainment is who you’re with. If your space focuses solely on “the tube” – you may be missing out on the most wonderful elements of your space – your loved ones.
