Disguising the TV

We’ve officially been moved into our new house since Christmas and I have yet to decide where to hang artwork. Every room has a frame or canvas leaning against a wall just waiting to find a permanent place. I’ve decided it’s time to get serious and pick up the hammer. We’re starting with the living room; it’s the priority because of one single thing: the televison. It’s big (thanks to Kalyn’s criteria). It’s ugly. And it’s an eyesore. Black TV against a white wall; here’s my point:


It may look stark right now, but I’m looking at this area as a blank canvas. My plan is to disguise the TV in a gallery wall. I found a handful of gorgeous gallery walls that are inspiring this little project (some with & without TV examples).

I’m currently in the process of compiling artwork within my color palette; I’ve also started finding frames and mattes. It’s important that the wall feels eclectic and a bit mismatched, yet looks cohesive. If you’re interested in creating a gallery wall- a good way to keep the wall consistent is by color and scale. Look for a post of the final result in the near future! What’s your favorite way to display artwork?
