let's talk TV's

Okay.  So, you've got at least one.  Now what do you do?  Hide it or let it shine?  One of my favorite ways around the TV dilemma is a custom made cabinet.  Now, I know this is unrealistic for many, especially those that do not have a wonderful carpenter around (which I do, by the way, if you need him), but it can be highly functioning when made to fit your space perfectly.

This one was featured in House Beautiful.  I like the subtleness of it.  It's definitely not shouting: "TV, here, LOOK!"

Can you tell I have a thing for bookcases?  No doors on this one, but still not glaringly obvious.   Another House Beautiful feature by designer Ashley Whittaker.

This one gets an A++ for creativity.  Simple, clean, lines, than surprise, they placed an antique painted cupboard in it.  Very original.  Design by Faye Cone, featured in (you guessed it) House Beautiful.

Then I stumbled upon a new-to-me blog, Pure Style Home, and I love the media cabinet she uses in her family room.  It looks to me to be a "found piece."  I did not see a source listed.  Love the sliding glass doors and drawers below.  Her entire blog is beautiful & her home was featured in this month's Better Homes & Gardens. Be sure to check it out!
