Giant living room wall

delaneylr12July 22, 2013
I have one very large wall in my living room. Tall ceilings. My tv is on this wall and I can't figure out what else to do with it. One problem....it is an older home and to the left of the tv there is a very slight bow in the wall from the house settling. I can't hang a large picture there because it just won't sit flat on the wall.
I was thinking floating shelves...
Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

How about a gallery wall? Having multiple pictures will hide the bow in the wall and would fill up the space nicely.

An open, lighted and light colored wall unit that you can put the TV into might work. I can't quite see what style you have. Are you on a tight budget? Just looking for a way to accessorize what is already there or are you open to changing the TV stand?

Gallery wall on both sides? I have seen some nice inspiration pics with the gallery wall framing the tv.
I would love a new tall and wide entertainment center, but not sure it's in the budget at this time. Out style is kind of eclectic. Modern mixed with old, metal mixed with wood...

a triptych of the world map each piece framed would take up space and be interesting and would be budget friendly if you could do it yourself.

I would be concerned with having a bow in my wall and would address getting it fixed first before trying to disguise a potentially large problem. Just sayin'.

here is something quite different. Not sure if it suits your aesthetic or yr present design but cedar boards to split the wall would be interesting with a TV mounted and the remaining g wall space could be filled with wall art(framed or unframed or posters or whatever!} as previously posted. It's eclectic

Maybe combining pictures with one or two big salvaged letters. Or spelling out something clever with various colors and sizes and fonts of salvaged letters and combining them with artwork with minimal frames or frameless. These pictures will give you an idea...

Large-scale art work or something architectural to break up the large expanse of wall. Ledge shelves with art work leaning on top and some vases would give some 3D to the space. A large ficus tree on the side of the TV without the chair is another idea. Also, you might consider pulling that chair and table in a little closer to the TV to make the arrangement a little tighter. Can't wait to see what you do. How nice to have such a large room!
