Don't get me wrong, Room for Color is primarily a vibrant showcase of interiors proudly embracing color throughout the home. But I also love our annual ode to color for another opportunity: to study how other people incorporate and layout furnishings within their spaces, including and specifically, large screen displays. Here are some of my favorite examples where the TV is tuned into the rest of the room and the lives of its occupants...
Kelly's "Cheery Rainbow" Room:
I would have never thought of using a pull down map as the background for a television, but I have to admit I'm charmed by this unusual juxtaposition between display and cartographic items on display here.
Michelle's "Eclectic Electric Blue" Room
It's quite obvious Michelle and boyfriend share a love for their music and movies. Their vast media collection is organized by color, and even the fireplace is utilized to house a cache of vinyl. If you're going to keep LPs, CDs, and DVDs out in the open, this is how to embrace it!
She wanted to keep the room's walls "light and neutral", and the same ideal was extended out to Shannon's streamlined and minimalist HDTV setup. No cords or cables visible, wall mounted, with a floating media cabinet hiding all the connected components.
