Your house is not the boss of you! Just because there’s a big wad of cable and power outlets on one wall does not mean you have to put your TV right there. Heck, Rita at Suburbs Mama didn’t put hers anywhere. She swapped out her set entirely and replaced it with the colorfully cozy scene you see before you.
I love the extra high gallery wall too. Genius, because A: nobody is going to smack their head on it when they sit on the sofa, and B: kids won’t be knocking stuff down left and right, like the poor battered gallery wall next to my stairs. I just threw away a frame that took a fatal fall this very morning. Seriously considering using some industrial strength Velcro on that thing, or just forbidding everyone from going upstairs ever again.
