I recently received an email from a reader who needed some advice on how to decorate around a TV. He wrote me saying, “I was wondering if you have plans to feature design inspiration, or how-to’s for televisions. In all these mid-century styled home, and modern style homes the TV is rarely featured, but it’s something people use everyday”. I TOTALLY agree! In most styled spaces, the TV somehow disappears. It is a hard accessory to decorate around, but it’s possible! Below are some simple tricks to decorate around your TV.

My most favorite way to decorate around a television is to include it in an art gallery (seen above). Use a variety of sized frames but make sure that there are frames that are larger than the TV. Using black frames also allows the TV to disappear a bit. Also a college of photos and interesting prints remove the focus of the TV.

Placing your TV on a media console and displaying decorative items around it can create a more artistic approach.

If you don’t want to commit to hanging art a large selection of art on the wall, lean an arrangement around the TV. Also place books and ceramics near and around art collection for a cool vignette.

I think the number one key for decorating around a TV is keeping things clean and minimal. Also when the media console/buffet is awesome, you forget how big and shiny the TV is. TV’s will never go away so we might as well embrace them!

  1. Great post! I’m decorating our new living room right now (a room that is so awkward to lay out!) and the tv interferes with all my aesthetic wishes. I think I’ve figured it out, and we’ll hope that the man of the house doesn’t disagree 🙂

  2. Televisions have changed a lot over the past decade. As a result, so has the way we decorate around them! If the TV is centrally located, I also like to hang pictures around the television to add a unique flair to the wall.
