This scene took place sometime in 2016…
Andrew – “We need a new TV!”
Claire – “Why? This one works perfectly well!”
Andrew – “Yes but I want a bigger one and there is that new OLED technology which…”
I stopped listening at that point. When you are married you have to pick and choose your battles, right? So we got a new BIG TV. Which means that I was left to decorate around a giant black rectangle taking centre stage in our living-room.
The thing with TVs is that often, when decorating, people treat them as an after-thought or, at the other hand of the spectrum, make it THE statement in the room. I wanted none of that. I don’t find TV to be nice to look at when they are off, so I wanted it to merge into the aesthetic of the room, while yet keeping it noticeable and enjoyable when on. The easiest way to do it for wall art hoarder like me? A gallery wall!
This gallery wall was a challenge though as our TV sits in a corner of the living-room, so not only did I have to plan around a TV but also across two walls! So before to start nailing things on the wall I looked for inspiration on my trusty Pinterest, and below are my top four sources of inspirations! All have the lightness and aesthetics I wanted to achieve. Come back very soon to see the results!
