Since I tend to normally focus on home offices and desktops, I decided to change things up and give the living room some love. We've discussed the best colors for a dedicated home theater, but comparatively, living rooms also have to be livable and ideally offer more color than a dark theater setting. Cue in these wallpaper recommendations, inspired by the designs of some of the most popular flat panel TVs available today...
Light & Airy: The Panasonic Viera models are some of my favorites because of their sleek design and
the clear bezel some of the models come in. This Smart Viera would be
complemented further with a nice white and gold wallpaper to get a clean yet
fashionable look, further accentuating it's see-thru design, and making sure the television is not the focal point of your room.
Dark and Moody: If you're aiming to improve the viewing experience while the lights are dimmer or off, a more dramatic darker background can bring out the picture front and center. The 60" VIZIO Razor LED Smart HDTV is a great budget pick (60" for under a grand!), and this dark copper and blue color underwater inspired wallpaper should help blend in the Razor's black bezel when it's movie hour.
Cheerful and Playful: I’m
not a huge fan of 3D content myself, but children seem to like watching movies and animated features in 3D. If you’ve got kids
at home who love the 3D watching experience, the Samsung sets are an extremely popular line. Pair it with this cute jungle wallpaper by Jonathan Adler and make the room even more kid-friendly.
Fashion First: This
last one is for my own dream living room. I don’t need a
3D TV, and because I live without cable I'll be relying upon an antenna and smart streaming features via Netflix. I've got my eyes set on a LG LED Smart TV paired with this tie-dye wallpaper creates a feminine space without being too girly.
