The flat screen TV is part of our lifestyle and out in the open in most households. Many homes and apartments lack a built-in entertainment center, so the console or media stand is the next best thing for supporting the TV and housing media equipment.
Several years ago I shared 9 ways to design around a TV but today the focus is on one of the most popular solutions: the media stand. No wonder so many retailers sell several versions, they’re in high demand! Styling a media stand or console can prove a challenge, I prefer simplicity myself but there are many different ways to pull off a stylish display of your own.
One of my favorite looks is a symmetrical art display around the TV, I did this recently for the shelter family room. Art or photographs that share commonality combined with matching frames is a no fail way to style a wall around television.
