Let’s Style a TV Stand

Let's Style a TV Stand…
Time to play one of my favorite games! I present a bunch of options — for styling a TV stand, in this case — and you tell me which items you’d pair together. I’ll tell you my choices too. Ready? Go!

I like numbers 1, 3, 4, and 10 together. Number 9 is cute too though — the yellow panel reverses to charcoal gray, and it also comes in a whitewashed finish. Which ones did you choose?

    I think I’d do up 8 with 2 and 7. The blue footed booby would make the man giggle everytime he saw it, just thinking of the name. I do love the MCM of the other stand. I’m already keeping an eye out on kijiji for one in our area.

    I’ve got one of those little ceramic succulents already, and the seller was great to work with! I’d probably order a bunch more and place them among a few live plants on top of the console.

      Ha, I had to stream it while I worked today because I couldn’t get the songs out of my head. (Um, and also I’ve always had a crush on Rick Moranis.)

    Oh Suddenly Seymour, you are the cutest. Upvote for choosing a GREAT movie to have on your TV screens.

    I love all the choices provided, actually. Today is a good day to imaginarily shop!

    The only thing I differed on was #10. To me, the colors are a little too muted. But I love that sculpture so so much.

    3,4 & 10 as well, although truth be told, our TV is so GIANT and my audiophile husband has so many different pieces of equipment (it takes three separate remotes to watch TV) that “accessorizing” the cabinet is out of the question. I’m not complaining! When we watch a movie, we really watch a movie! You would feel like Audrey II is right there in the room with you. Gulp!

    Hi Nicole! I love your choices and I would go with #3-4-10 and 2 instead of 1. I picked #10 in my spring favorites 2 weeks ago! http://fourseasonsathome.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/waiting-for-spring/

    Ah, you always introduce new household things to lust after. I’d go for #9 if I were picking a stand again (I’m half-way tempted to sell the old one and make a switch) and #10 – which now I need to check out for some bookshelf styling.

    I love all three media stands, but #8 matches my style best. I also love the wire vases in #5, but I don’t think I’d use them with the media stands. Funny.

    What I’m really loving is the white TV. Really? You can get them in white? Why’d my husband come home with a black one, then? WHERE IS MY WHITE TV? (And what color is the screen when it’s turned off? If the screen is dark, that kind of defeats the purpose. In my mind’s eye.)

    3,4,6 and 7 – Love this stand, its timeless. Gotta have a TV. I’m drawn to the wire sculpture, I have no idea why! Adore that piggy bank and it adds a splash of color

    I’d go with 3 + 4 (love! we have a similar shape/set-up) and that’s it! I usually love accessories, but not near my TV – I find them too distracting while trying to watch.

    4, 2 & 10! Oh and of course a TV; the white one is lovely. The white tv would pop on this tv stand and the little pops of colour would be just lovely.


    6, 5 & 8 – I really love the white tv stand, the pop of colour with the yellow piggy, and the contrast from the metal vases? It would be so lovely — and again, of course a tv. A white one would look good on this tv stand as it would blend in and let those vases pop, but a black one would also look go and go with the vases.

    Two options .. like usual! And I wonder why I have trouble decorating my apartment …
