It's all about the TV / Det handler om TV'en....


This is how we've chosen to "display" our TV. I mean, the TV can NEVER look good, it's just not possible. So I chose to put it on top of my favorite DIY - the striped credenza (before and after pics HERE). That does at least give me a little eye candy I did see a blogger that had a white frame on the TV instead of black, and it looked really good. So I'm wishing for a white TV (a big NO from mr B). However, I do think it's difficult to style around a TV. I mean, you don't want there to be to much "noise" around the TV, and at the same time, I don't like the TV.

---------------

Dette er TV-møbelet vårt :) I min mening, kan TV'en ALDRI se bra ut, det er rett og slett ikke mulig. Så jeg har valgt å bruke favoritt DIY-prosjektet mitt - den stripete sjenken. (før og etterbilder HER). Da har jeg i alle fall litt eye candy. Jeg så en blogger som hadde hvit TV i stedet for sort, og det så utrolig bra ut. Så jeg ønsker meg en hvit TV (men mr B har lagt ned veto). Uansett, jeg synes det er vanskelig å style rundt tv'en. På den ene siden skal det ikke være forstyrrende elementer for tv-tittingen (jeg er litt tv-slave om dagen), men samtidig synes jeg TV'en er stygg og dominerende.


The voluspa japanese plum blossom candle definitely helps. And smells out of this world! They have great voluspa bargains on ebay - this one was a birthday present from my youngest brother - he sure knows what to get for his big sis!!

What are your best styling tips for making the TV "work"??

------------

Det japanske plommeblomstlyset fra Voluspa hjelper veldig. Og det lukter helt fantastisk! De er ganske dyre her i Norge, men har gode bargains på ebay. Dette var bursdaggaven fra min yngste lillebror - han vet definitivt hva storesøster setter pris på!!

Hva er dine beste styletips for å få TV'en til å funke som en del av interiøret?

None;( jeg ønsker meg vel også en hvit TV. Blir jo mye mindre dominerende med en gang. Det eneste jeg har gjort er å plassere TV sånn at den ikke sees med en gang en kommer inn i stua;)

Great idea- I love it! We have our TV in a large built-in cabinent so I can shut it away. However, that involves shutting the door and that does not always happen. :-)

DIY-prosjektet ditt er så flott at jeg (nesten) ikke så at tv-en sto der jeg..hihi...Ja du, ikke lett å møblere rundt den...grr....Men jeg som du er glad i å se på tv, så da fårn vel være ganske synlig også da.

For my bedroom I have the idea to hang it on the wall and place a lot of art work around it,or, perhaps have one of those credenzas, where the TV moves up from beneath.
I your case since it's all out there, why not embrace it and make something out of it?
Hang some art or sconces behind, or have a pretty slim tray in front, or a small box for the remote?
I am not so sure about the figurine.

Good luck with your styling...

Hei! Så utrolig flott sjenk! Kan tenke meg det var litt av en jobb!! Helt enig med deg, en tv kan aldri se bra ut. Ha en fin kveld:o)

Det er ikke alltid så lett, men en mørk vegg bak tv-en, mørk brun, mørk grå, mørk blå, mørk grønn funker veldig bra. Men kanskje ikke hos deg :-)

We don't have a TV. Simple as that. But if we were ever to get one (not likely), we would have to make way for a media room. Not because of the way the TV looks, but because it takes all the attention away from each other. I prefer the living room to be a place to socialize, not laying brain dead on the couch.. lol!

I love your credenza, it makes an awesome TV table! The wallpaper in your living room looks super gorgeous too =D
