Designer Dossier, Entry 1 (…of many tales from the job)

At Andrea Noel Designs, we like to keep our clients up to date with any fresh trends, new ideas and easy ways to solve (what seem like) big problems.

 

One of our recent clients had a minor dilemma dealing with a particular television. The man of the house wanted a second T.V. in the family room for game days, of course, and the head of the house (his wife) wasn’t too fond of the idea, so we, the mediators interior designers, found a compromise.

This second flat screen T.V. is hidden fashionably over the fire place, behind a mirrored T.V. cabinet. The mirror’s doors can easily open for display of a second game during the NBA finals or close for decorative purposes at a family gathering. Plus, if the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND the Real Housewives of New York are on at the same time, who’s to say you have to choose between Lisa Vanderpump and Bethenny Frankel? That is cruel. Watch them both, you deserve it.

Here are just a few more examples of how easy and aesthetically pleasing it can be to hide your T.V.’s:

This ever-so-sleek laminate build-in unit is trendy and could be the emphasis of any living room. Paired with a beautiful fireplace and a high ceiling, who would even guess that a T.V. was hidden within?

 

Framed for Function:

A series of framed pieces on cabinet contraption is a unique way to hide a television set in a formal living area.

We love this shutter unit! It will add such a flare to a living space when closed and is oh-so functional.

 

Slide On Over:

This contemporary living room calls for a sleek fix when hiding a T.V. A lacquered sliding door that doubles as a wall is perfect for this space.

These sliding barn doors are so fab. Not only do they get the job done in concealing this flat screen, but they also bring the whole space together with the white-washed, distressed wood.

Just a few fun ideas when it comes to dealing with pesky T.V. sets!
