Here at Apartment Therapy, we can't get enough of clever ideas for hiding thermostats, air conditioners or circuit boxes when they aren't in use and here's a simple idea from Richard & Julie's Pawtucket loft. Can you spot a thermostat anywhere in this picture?

A picture frame hinged to a small piece of wood that has been painted the same color as the wall is as straightforward a solution as there is, but it gets bonus points for being totally unnoticeable, even up close. And though the single framed image, hung low to cover the thermostat, might seem a bit awkward and out-of-place, they've balanced it by hanging the second painting above. Check out the full tour for more images of Richard & Julie's Elegant Industrial Loft.
