Disguising a TV • The Gallery Wall

Disguising-a-TV-DiCorcia-Interior-DesignThe Bungalow is an experiment lab of sorts, a place where I test out my more “creative” decorating theories and analyze the outcome. My husband has come to accept this (and is a saint for it!), allowing me take the reins when it come to design decisions – which include large splashes of pink here and there! So I had no grounds to stand on when he wanted to hang a 48″ flatscreen in the middle of our living room (whaaaat?!). I’ve pondered its existence for some time, contemplating concealment options such as a great antique armoire or having built-in cabinets and shelves constructed around the monstrosity, but neither solution would really work in the space. And as much as I hate to admit it, the room probably wouldn’t be used as frequently without its presence – where would we watch football when the Giants are away?! So I’ve come to terms with it and decided in lieu of concealment, the art of disguise would work quite nicely in the form of a gallery wall strategically placed around it.

Unless the husband is gay.”.

Do you conceal or disguise your TV? Is it ginormous, or small and petite (like the one I wanted)?
