Any advice on a corner media shelf? I need to make as much use of the wall as possible as our home is small and we're in desperate need of storage.

what about mounting your tv to the walland if your feeling a little adventurous you could fram the TV with a cool frame (or alternatively buy a print and place on a sliding track so you could cover over the TV when your not watching it.

I think floating shelves are always are great solution. The more items you get off the floor the more space you will have. Just be conscious with a dzrk or heavy timber table can make a room feel small. If its not inthe budget to for a glass coffee table then perhaps you could paint youir coffee table white? If you use a paint stripper and borrow an erlix gun or invest in one that will make the paint job smooth!

Just because your door trims are timber you do nt need to be too matchy matchy to have a beautiful room - again if you feel you could paint then I would paint them in a warm white semi gloss oil based paint DULUX Stowe whote is a greta colour. I hope this helps a little

If you have the budget, I don't think you could get more storage in a corner than in this: [houzz=

A smaller version of this open shelving, in the same wood tones as your beautiful mission table and trim, might work against your wall. Or, alternately, a larger mission style console. I would not even consider, however, painting your lovely historic trim. http://www.stickley.com/OurProducts_Details.cfm?id=2598&Collection=mission&cat1=88&view=all&view=complex&finish=
