So, you’ve just purchased your dream TV. As you center your TV on your living room wall and step back to admire it, you note that the wall décor around your TV is lacking. You want your living room décor to be as impressive as your TV, but hiring an interior designer is expensive and you have no idea how to decorate a wall around a TV. Don’t fret! We’ve come up with nine stylish ways to decorate around a TV.

As a general rule, symmetry is visually pleasing. If your TV is centered on your wall, mantle, or entertainment center, consider adding wall art to make your living room feel balanced. There are several charming ways to add symmetry around your TV. Mirrors, wall art, sconces, cabinets, and lamps are just a few options that make your space feel homier.


Ashley Oengus Accent Mirror 

To brighten up your living room and add the illusion of more space, try a mirror! We have a large selection of mirrors at Homemakers, but we are loving these Ashley Oengus Accent mirrors. A set of these mirrors would liven up your TV decorations!

“If you have a lot of wall space showing behind a TV, think about using either a couple of larger prints or maybe a small series of art work-either horizontally or in a cluster.”

–Brandon, Visual Designer

Pacific Coast Lighting Tripod Floor Lamp

Add some asymmetrical charm to your living room décor with a faux tree or floor lamp beside your TV to add some visual height. This Pacific Coast tripod floor lamp would be an excellent piece to add asymmetry to your living room set-up.

Gallery Wall

Can’t narrow down your wall décor to just one or two pieces? No problem! Pick several of your favorite pieces to create a gallery wall to compliment your living room TV. A gallery wall can add personality to your room and flow well with your TV. Homemakers has countless wall décor options to fit your style, but our favorites are wall clocks, mirrors and wall art. Add some botanical notes with these stylish fern prints! If that’s not your style, consider this chic, marble wall clock. 

Artificial Plants

Get a boho vibe with some artificial plants. We have lots of plants in various heights that would be great to set next to a TV stand. It's aslo great for someone who might not have a green thumb or not enough time to take care of a plant.
