I have gotten a few reader requests lately having to do with televisions and how to decorate around them and make them less of an eye-sore. There are all sorts of ideas below - hide it within built-in shelving, wallpaper the wall behind it (or paint it black), place it on top of a hot pink credenza as a distraction, hang art around it (like I did).....and at the end of the post is an example of what NOT TO DO.
It's easy to see that New York interiors and architectural photographer Emily Gilbert started her career as an artist, even moving on to be a set dresser for TV and film. She loves a room. She loves the contents. She understands what makes a room tick. She composes, she almost caresses, she snaps. It's gorgeous. You can follow how she approaches her commissions on her blog and drink in even more fab photos over there.
I wonder if photographers who shoot such absolutely amazing spaces (ie. yesterday's post) go home to their less than stellar dwellings and think "why do I live in this dump?". I think today's featured photographer might have had that thought on occasion. Mauricio Fuertes of Barcelona claims he's been working alot, in places that he dreams about. I'm fairly certain had I stepped into any of the spaces I'd be having dreams about them too, and wishing they were mine.
