Media walls generally look best if they echo the architecture of the home. Cabinetmaker True studies the trim throughout the house and runs matching base and crown molding across the front of the built-in. He’s also fond of incorporating fluted pilasters and arches when appropriate to break up the unit’s rectilinear lines.

Complete cohesion. Place the television directly on top of the fireplace and bring both of these focal draws together by surrounding them with wood and molding details in the same style. Consider painting the backs of flanking bookcases the same color as the fireplace for further design cohesion.

Ottomans are decorative furniture pieces that are used for seating lying down storage and giving a gorgeous look to your living room. Ottomans are common in countries like the United States and European countries but they are seldom found in the third world countries.

A smart consumer (like you) takes storage and style seriously. This Crate & Barrel Stash ottoman puts the two together in perfect harmony.
Irmentrud Vreni Fireplace January 23rd, 2018
Let the fireplace float. By placing windows around the fireplace (and placing the metal chimney on the outside) there's little to block the light and view so the interior stays more open and bright. The fireplace seems to float in the wall rather than being anchored to one spot by a heavy masonry chimney.

Keep the screen hidden too. It’s not only the projector that can be concealed but the screen itself. With a motorized projector lift some ceiling-integrated speakers and a drop-down projector screen the transition from living room to home cinema can be as smooth as it is impressive. The space freed up while the screen isn’t in use can be used to display artwork or any other more aesthetically pleasing pieces.

Moroccan poufs are a dime a dozen these days but this lime-green one from Serena & Lily stands out from the crowd for obvious reasons. Or choose another bold color to take a room from blah to brilliant.

While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.
