Design CHALLENGE. -- living room staircase space

December 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Please help us design this space!

The couch is where the picture was taken from. TV is up and I like where it is on the wall.

The stair rails are under experiment. They may be completed as black and white( they are currently in progress) or they may change depending on design needs. Any input here is also great. The green wall in back is currently planned to be light gray

A couple preliminary options I thought of:
(all options result in hiding the TV cords)

1. Have a living wall under the TV. Then put plants and high decorative objects on the cabinet (either this one or a shorter one?)

2. Put a smaller cabinet under the TV. Have plants with height which reach to the height of the TV (block the cords). Then have a day bed bench where the cabinet is in the photo

3. Have a planter where the cabinet currently is. Long and low with high thin plants reaching upward. cabinet with decorative items/plants under the TV.

Shelving was another option. However, we have a small kiddo and I'm not sure this is the right time for that.

I am in no way fixed on these ideas. It's just the only thing I could come up with :)

Hi kaminskia -- Welcome to houzz. I'm afraid that plants/drips/humidity in such proximity to your electronics might be trouble. I'd slide the console right under the tv, bring the tv down 18 inches, and put a swivel chair -- and since you seem to love greenery, a plant -- where the console is now.
