A New TV Cabinet & Art to Finish the Space

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

There's a space in our home that I've haven't shown on the blog.  After we moved our TV from above the fireplace to the opposite wall in our family room, the space never looked "finished". We had a pretty great TV cabinet that we found in the mountains at a tag sale which worked perfectly until the guys decided we needed a larger TV.  Then the TV looked top heavy because it was wider than the cabinet.  Also, the wall around the TV was blank because I had a tough time pulling the trigger on art. All of this plus the new location beside stairs made it a little tricky.  Fast forward a year (yes it took that long) and we now have a TV cabinet that is size appropriate and beautiful art from Minted surrounding it.


Minted recently started offering new mounting and border options that take artwork to the next level. I chose mats and brass frames for my prints to give them a custom look.  I wanted the artwork I chose to have meaning.  My family has many wonderful memories under palm trees - whether at the beach, Palm Springs, or Aruba, we love tropical vacations.  The prints are by different artists, but the matching mats and framing unify them making them look as though they go together.


Here's a close up.  It's hard to get a shot without a reflection as this room receives lots of natural light. I filled the remaining space with a pair of faux antlers that I already had.



I'm so happy with how this space looks now and when I sit down at night to watch TV I can enjoy it rather than obsessing over what to do there, haha.
