    Love the tapestry idea

  2. OCEAN OF FOXES on June 26, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    I hate my Samsung. I bought it because of this art display thing and it DOESN’T WORK as I imagined. It literally makes you display a FRAME like a passe-partout. And you can’t set your picture for a screensaver. I wanted it to be part of the wallpaper and I had struggled so much to set it up I finally gave up. It was way too expensive, I’d choose LG over it if I could choose again because the remote works like a mouse and is much easier to navigate. This sh1t was expensive. It’s not the model with the actual frame, the frame is very thin, 75". I think they released the frame-frame models just after that but mine was advertised as the art display too.

    or just buy a projector screen which is grey…

  4. tiger1962 daz on June 26, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    Great! Thank you. I just bought a 55” tv and that big black thing is really an eye sore when not in use ( most of the time bec im not a tv lover, my hubby does but not always around due to his work) i love you tapestry thing ❤️

  5. Wanda Cakes on June 26, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    I love, love, love my frame TV!

  6. gizelle louis on June 26, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Just remember, everything that’s fashionable today will be outdated tomorrow.
    Decorate to your style and preference. A lot of these ‘ must do and must have ‘ are up to you.

    My solution was to create a u shape with two sofas and an oversized chair. These create a focal point on the fireplace. The big tv is on the wall behind the chair (there’s a walk space between them). When it’s just my husband and I we have a sofa each with good sight line to the tv (chair has low back) but when we have guests the seating layout creates a conversation pit. This worked with great effect when we had visitors for a week including kids recently and because the focus was off the tv it wasn’t until their last night did the kids ask to turn it on. We had great conversations, played heaps of board games and chess and the kids mostly went off to bed without dramas

  8. rockshot100 on June 26, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    I completely agree with her, the huge black rectangle will be the focal point of any room and will dominate it. My TV is off 99.9% of the time. I used almost all of her tricks. One trick she didn’t mention, is to use a lightweight framed art a little bigger than the TV. I hot glued a random piece of molding to the back of the picture and that acts as a bracket to cover the TV, the molding is a "U" shaped plastic thing that runs the length of the top of the TV that clips over the top. So if I ever turn the TV on, I just put the artwork behind the console table to hide it. EASY

  9. C S on June 26, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    We bought some really cool fabric in Argentina and made curtains that slide closed over the TV. Closed, it just looks like a wall hanging and it’s a nice reminder of our trip.

  10. Laurentiu Trifan on June 26, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I watched this clip … only for the pleasure to see & hear you … because I have laid off of TV … for a few good months. And it feels soo good. 🥳

  11. Mark Bartlett on June 26, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    We installed samsung frames into a $50 million superyacht and dislayed custom artworks on them -they’re that good.

  12. Cassandra Scott on June 26, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Great vid! You must have covered every angle/option! I own a TV but it’s not for watching… I’m not connected to receive a signal… I use it to watch DVD’s! So it’s fixed to a mobile stand tucked in the corner behind a large chair with a large piece of fabric thrown over it which is the same colour as the walls and curtains. You’d hardly know it was there!

  13. Tim Ward on June 26, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    I have a smaller (32") screen in a mid-century modern living room. I built a mid-century-ish walnut-stained plywood console (with legs) to house it. Although the screen is always visible, turning it into a piece of walnut furniture that evokes the feeling of a modern-but-period TV created perfect harmony with the decor. And because modern TVs are so much thinner, the console is only 12" deep but has enough room for the cord. I’m not a carpenter and have only very basic tools, so I had Home Depot cut all the major pieces. Worked out well and the total cost was under $100. Something to think about for those who like some of the old-style rooms, have a small living room, and don’t like even relatively small black rectangles.

  14. Tami Vega on June 26, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Dear Ms. Posh, Brilliant. Well done. You really do put out the best product. I"m in planning stage for a new house. Your videos inevitably end up in my Decor Playlist. Thank you for your high quality work. You’re a pleasure to watch. You are making things easier for me and my decorator. (Whoever she may be.)

  15. V Giard on June 26, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Mine is on a mid tone stones wall (there is a black stove neer by too) with a tube hiding the cables behind and a rustic chelted storage made of old wood from a barn and metallic frame from a construction desk top. It is perfect. Texture is doing all the work without steeling the show when the TV is on

  16. khelix23 on June 26, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    I liked the tapestry idea 😅

  17. Sarah Coombs on June 26, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Yes! Thank you for all these suggestions!

  18. It'sMe And You on June 26, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    you are so good this

  19. Belle Will on June 26, 2022 at 10:33 pm


  20. Robin Black on June 26, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    A TV will never be eyesore to me. I love watching TV so I just can’t see it. I don’t want anything next to it as it’s a distraction when I am watching especially a ugly clutter gallery wall

  21. TheSazzna on June 26, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    I have a 75" tv in a room that has windows on every wall, what are your suggestions for making it blend in when my tv has to sit in front of a window?

  22. Engineering π on June 26, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    TV is a TV, it should be the way it is, no hiding, framing, etc, it seems crazy to me. If someone does not like it, then don’t have one.

  23. saby8765 on June 26, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    I just couldn’t agree to getting a samsung frame because it looks nice when you’re not watching it. For a tv, the primary focus should be, well, on the quality of the tv.

  24. Raquel Isla on June 26, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Your ideas are great. Thanks a lot❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  25. Secondeve on June 26, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Great ideas, thank u!

  26. Nina Koinz on June 26, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    I don’t own a T.V.

  27. VerumPositor on June 26, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    I have the latest Frame TV model and everyday I enjoy it. I incorporated it in my Gallery Wall

  28. zakosist on June 26, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    I dont even have a TV, but great video. Those are a lot of tips I would never think of or even know existed if I didn’t watch this

  29. Lia Mind on June 26, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Totally agree with Martin Abernathy! I have been looking for a long time for such a video or a instruction from a designer on what to do with the “ normal” stuff such as Tv, so thank you very much! Could you also tell what to do with the stereo system/ loudspeakers, what is the best way to integrate it in the interior?

  30. Susan Hawk on June 26, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    My TV is hardly used anymore. My husband and I have tablets and use them instead. My husband has hearing issues and it is difficult to have the TV blasting. Life is so much more calm when the TV is not on.

  31. Keenya Land on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Love it

  32. EH on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    We just got the frame tv to put over a fire place and LOVE 💕 it!

  33. Impulsive Urge on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    how is a black slab of glass ugly? its a neutral color, its shiny and attractive

  34. Chris ... on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    When I upgraded from a 26-inch flatscreen monitor to a 43-inch plasma flatscreen, I had to also resolve TWO issues:
    1. I rent, so wall mounting was not really an option.
    2. I live in earthquake country (West Coast, specifically Seattle), so my expensive flatscreen needed to be secured; a stand was absolutely NOT good enough.

    I researched and found a low TV console with an extendable mounting arm (flattened pole, actually), providing me with both screen stability/security AND an adjustable viewing height. And the ‘arm’ is set up to hide wiring as well: BONUS!
    But WAIT ! There’s MORE!
    It’s a dark wood tone console reminiscent of a low coffee table, but set on ironwork. It’s heavy as hell so in an earthquake it’s not going anywhere! Plus it has 3 linear drawers, under which is a shelf. So not only can I secure the TV and organize my media supplies in one spot, but it has that matching dark tone you recommended to minimize the starkness of a black tv panel.

    I’m reporting this so others know to do the research when you have a unique problem; you never know what’s out there until you look.

    I had just this week started thinking I need to do something with the lack of decor and the intensity of my flatscreen backed by a buildergrade-beige wall. I was just considering making it a gallery wall and playing with layout options in my mind.
    I live in a studio apartment. My futon bed/couch faces a 16ft-wide wall with a bookcase at the righthand corner, a dining area at the lefthand corner, and the TV console in between. I was thinking a gallery wall would help define the space. I considered aligning the bottom edge of different-sized framed art pieces running horizontally about 5-6 inches above the top edge of the flatscreen, maybe 2 more same-size frames (one on each side) to balance and fill the space (aligning the tops of the frames to the top of the flatscreen and aligning the outside edge of the bottom frames with the outside edge of the outside-placed upper row of art).
    So I thank you for providing and affirming options!

  35. Rachel Torres McFarling on June 26, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I have a very big free standing television with a big window behind which is a few metres from woods, so not too much light. On each side I have curtains, long of course, and we can close them either behind or in front of the television. The TV itself is on an antique coffre, (can’t remember in English), with an antique damask throw. None of this was planned yet it seems to work.

  36. TV Art Gallery on June 26, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    I like the idea of turning idle tv into Art display. That’s why I created a channel so I can cast vintage arts on my tv. I really enjoy it so far.

  37. Mrs Nibin on June 26, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    I love love your vids . Please make one for xmas 2021 🙏🏻♥️

  38. saby8765 on June 26, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    A top of the line tv, like Sony, should be showcased rather than hide. That is probably right up there with your expensive furniture.

  39. s p on June 26, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I took a 6 month break from TV. It’s now month 147. Best decision I ever made. There’s always Youtube!

  40. Leigh Merryday Porch, M.Ed. on June 26, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    What do you recommend if your "black" to blend the TV in your color palette is navy? Same idea of dark + dark, or major clash?

  41. T A on June 26, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    I plan to hide our TV behind the curtains, like you mentioned in another video. 😉
    The window is just next to the TV, so it fits.

    I would consider to use a colourful patterned wallpaper, too.

  42. Judith Cervizzi on June 26, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Please tell me where you got that large black console. It’s gorgeous!

  43. B Good on June 26, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Cabinets with doors used to be much more popular and easy to find. But when TVs became bigger and more rectangular, I guess 20 years ago, they didn’t make cabinets to fit the rectangles. But I don’t know why not – it was such a simple way to hide a TV. Instead they went for a console with an exposed TV.

  44. Deb Eight One Three on June 26, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    There are 1.7bn households with TVs, not 1.7bn people. Most people don’t live alone

  45. rockshot100 on June 26, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Great tips, I did mine on the cheap. TV is not on the walls you first see going into the room, the seating is. TV is on an arm, very close to the council, so wires are not a problem. On the council, is a big light vase or vessel to move to floor when not on. Also did the gallery thing with black frames, and have the big oriental style with a fair amount of black in it. These tips DO work.

  46. silkskinz on June 26, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Samsung frame… How much electricity are you wasting in rest mode, idiotic!

  47. Mary Aparici on June 26, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I haven’t had a tv for 12 years now.
    Don’t miss it . 🫶🏽

  48. girlymexican on June 26, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    When did the human being decided a tv was an eyesore?

  49. B Br on June 26, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    If I had a tv I’d put it in an armoire so I could close it up when not in use. Even better I don’t have a tv. I get all the entertainment I want on my computer or iPad. You can live without the one eyed monster. That way I don’t have that ugly thing on the wall being the piece I have to decorate around.

  50. Halane on June 26, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    The tv doesn’t really bother me. The sound bar and subwoofer though, those are a pain! Any ideas?
