The tiles are from Beaumont tiles (
The size was 300x600 and the colour will now be discontinued, though there will be something similar available.

Fade to black. If you’d rather not go to the trouble of opening and closing doors, cabinetry that gives the TV somewhere to sit but doesn’t hide it away could be the answer. Set a dark TV against a dark wall and it will disappear into the background.

WallpaperThis doesn’t have to be loud and a feature item of a room. Here is a perfect example of a restrained wallpaper, complementing the room – it’s paired with dark furniture and works well with the technology, storage and decoration. Note that the Eames Replica Chair With Ottoman is the ultimate man space seating.Step inside this home

Move the televisionWe all have different relationships with our televisions, but if you feel like you are not putting it to good use, it may be because of the positioning. Think about rearranging your room so the TV is in a place that best suits your current lifestyle and needs.TELL US Do you have any clever and fun ideas for celebrating the telly this year?MORE5 Ways to Make a Flat-Screen TV Blend InAbracadabra!

3. Black it outA tried and tested way to make the TV disappear is to camouflage it into the surrounding wall. Paint the back wall a dark colour such as navy, charcoal or warm black – or use wallpaper as in this photo – and your TV will seem to merge into the background. In this living room, the dark feature wall and matching joinery add sophistication and moodiness to the room. This is a good solution for those wanting to avoid the obtrusiveness of TVs and of having to fiddle with cabinet doors.Tip: Use seagrass or a woven wallpaper in a dark hue on the back wall for added texture and warmth.

maybe tapestry on the wall might be a solution
