Q: We recently moved into our first house and the "TV wall" in our family room is enormous. We're really struggling with what to do with it and as a result, our living room currently looks like a college apartment -- yuck. We've looked at a variety of entertainment centers and console/credenzas and while we've found a couple options, they've either been out of our budget or just didn't seem quite right.

I want to get rid of that bookcase and the old Ikea TV stand I've had for years and replace it with something more substantial. The wall measures about 14 feet across, and the ceilings are 11 feet tall. We're in the midst of a major decluttering, but we do need some storage in this room as well since there are no closets nearby. Our tastes run somewhere between traditional and contemporary -- the IKEA look is too plain, but we don't want something too ornate either. We also love dark wood. We'd love suggestions and/or ideas!!
