While a number of us at Freshome would love to have a home theater, those of us who are still waiting to make our millions and buy our mansion settle for creating a theater-like space in our dream living room. A flatscreen TV is a must (here’s a VIZIO D-Series 24″ option from Target to get you started), but it doesn’t necessarily have to be the focal point of the room. We’ve highlighted a number of ways you can seamlessly integrate your TV into the room or cleverly hide it away. For example, you can tuck it away in a polished entertainment center, like the Cameo 2-Piece Entertainment Center from Crate & Barrel.
Homes are not always dramatic and dazzling, but details make a huge difference even in the most compact spaces. Take this townhouse as example: part of a luxurious NYC West Village townhouse, this comfortable furnishings and colors create a parlor room where socialization is key. The fireplace and floor to ceiling French windows leading to a terrace that overlooks the garden are massively charming, but all the details shape a elegant yet snug living room.
Under a wooden ceiling, a sunken living room rich in colorful details warms up the concrete connection to the outdoors. In a lake shore weekend home like architect Stuart Sampley’s revival of the traditional Texas dogtrot-style architecture, the living room design plays a key role in the overall weekend fun feeling this house bestows on its owners.
