Christine, I am resending these photos again. I'm hoping you have some time to offer suggestions. I'm creating a TV/reading den in our small third bedroom. The wall where I'd like to put the wall-mounted TV is across from the sleeper sofa but is broken up by a closet door. The closet door cuts the wall in half which means the TV placed on the remaining half wall will not be exactly opposite the sofa. I think it will be okay. This will be a lightly used room with just me and my husband.
I've been looking for a small console table to place under the wall-mounted TV (yet to be purchased). I found the Tanner console table from Pottery Barn. The table is 65" X 12" deep by 30" high and will fit on the half wall which is 83" long. We would buy a TV and have it wall mounted above the table. I would put books and electronic components on the table and hide the cords.
Another idea is to forego the console table and instead buy two tall etageres to place on either side of the sleeper sofa to create a sort of library. Then I would just mount the TV on the wall discussed above but it seems it should have something under the TV. Any suggestions? Thanks. Pam
I definitely prefer the console table over the library idea. It will look much better. I also like the Tanner console table you selected. It is great to have a variety of finishes, and it will fit in nicely with its low visual weight.
Now that I've answered your question- time for the unsolicited advice. This is good advice for everyone. Question- what is the color pallette of the den? Anyone? Anyone? There is a teal green chair and ottoman, but I don't see that color repeated. There is red in the pillows on the sofa. The flooring, walls and window treatments are neutral shades. The picture over the sofa is mostly blue. If you want to pull this room together, you need to repeat some color. I chose the teal from the chair. That is very dominant, and you did not mention replacing it. Change the art over the sofa. See the teal in the painting below. It is also full of the other neutral shades in the room. (let me know if you'd like me to put this painting in my store)
Then- the one picture thing is not working for me. Think variety in wall decor. Variety in subject and also variety in number. With one picture over the sofa- how about three ceramic flowers replacing the other picture, hung vertically in a row? I'd add three more on the other side of the window, giving that wall some symmetry and balance. (from Target)
I would also add an area rug to define and add texture to the space.
Then simply switch out your pillows, (pillow below from Pottery Barn) and you have solidified a color pallet. Can you see how much more put together your room will be?
Thanks for writing in, hope you didn't mind the unsolicited advice.
