Doily Under the Flatscreen TV?

Good Questions

Q: We just moved into a new house and I am excited about decorating but I am design-challenged. We will have tons of decisions to make but the one I'm writing about today is this. We have ordered a wooden TV console and a 42" flat screen TV for the living room. My husband asked if I wanted to put a "doily" on the stand under the TV. Is is common or acceptable to add a runner/mat or other square, rectangle or oval of fabric on your TV console?

I love fabric and would welcome an opportunity to add some color but don't know if that's the right place.
