Any interior designers on here (or anyone who has an eye for decorating)? HELP!!

Posted by   + Show Post

So DH finally put the two shelves next to the two TVs in our living room.  An electrician is here as we speak moving the outlets up so they are behind the TV.   When he is finished there will be no wires, outlets or phone extensions there.  The wall underneath will be completely bare.

I would like to put something along the wall under the TVs because they look so plain but I don't know what.  We're not going to paint the walls anything but white because we will not be here that long.  We are moving in 2-ish years and will rent this place out, it's a pita to paint the walls over and over.  

Any suggestions?  I am probably the least creative person ever.

Where is this from? It would match the shelves perfectly.  I love it.

I would say a long credenza a buffet would be too tall.

I really like this one too.  I don't know though, I have three under three.  One of the reason we're raising everything is because of little fingers.

A long shelf from the edge of the first cabinet all the way to the end of the last one. Put it up with brackets on the wall.

I really like Ikea's modular items, with like almost block type book shelves- books in some, pictures in others, etc.

ArchiExpo.  London.  Sorry.  Just google black lacquer high gloss credenza.  There should be tons that are pretty similar.

You could put a glass shelf under neath.  The length of the t.v's.  Then you could put what ever you wanted on top. The floating type so there is no brackets .  This will give the illusion of a piece of floating glass or a mirror!


glasstopsdirect.com has wonderful pieces

 I would paint the walls at least a beige color.  Then, a buffet or something like that against the wall with a big floor vase next to it.

You mean the ones that you mount on the wall?
