The great television debate

September 23, 2009

When it comes to the old gogglebox (TV to you and me, but unfornately not to my mother), when does it start hindering the decorating process. So often you complete a fantastic country cottage-style living room scheme, and suddenly you’re faced with trying to ‘match’ a giant Samsung PLASMA in with your chintzy fabrics and rustic furniture.

I love these three television rooms from housetohome.co.uk. A real inspiration for the television fan, whether you want to make your model a statement feature, incorporate it in your scheme, or hide it away (with your collection of Julia Roberts romcoms :-S)

1) Say it loud and say it proud …

3) Save it for a rainy day …

I think i’m definitely an ‘option number 3’ girl, because i simply CANNOT and WILL NOT choose between gorgeous country style and an episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
