Is it possible to know the name of designer of doors covering T.V.?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
sharonmagliano, another option is TVCoverUps. Framed art(including your own) or mirror adds to the room's decor, with the hidden TV and Entertainment Consoles beneath.
See how EASY it really is:

The room is very tall, about 14' at the ridge. The fireplace mantle is about 4'-6" high. Thank you for your comments.

I usually prefer no base or a tile base where I have tile floors and then a very simples painted wood base at stained wood floors.

Thank you. That light is from Steve Handleman Studios in Santa Barbara and it's their Marakesh fixture.

5. Built-in niches and alcoves. A cozy looking seating alcove peeks out from beyond the living room, and a small niche crowns the top of the stucco fireplace.
Shane D. Inman added this to Goodbye, TV — Hello, Fireplace
Painted doors. These artistic Spanish colonial–style doors are in the same style as the rest of this home while hiding the television.Design tip: Have a contractor make doors to fit and then have them expertly painted by a local artist. This is great way to support your local community.
