Great idea for hiding the TV could work in any decor Fireplace or not! A sliding wall above the fireplace (a ventless model from Hearth Cabinet) conceals the television. Hide the TV in a variation on this theme?
I appreciate quality tv and movies almost as much as I appreciate fine art so why should I have to choose. I don& think I& ever seen a TV that looks great in a room so why not tuck it away behind an abstract masterpiece.
