Hanging lights such as lanterns, lamps, or even string lights will help illuminate the wall in a softer tone. This fits perfectly especially in comparison to the harsh blue light that most LCD TV’s have. It also adds to the cozy atmosphere you might want to create.

Add Some Natural Life
Framing your TV in plants on either side of the TV stand, or on wall mounted shelving, will help bring some natural life to the wall. Also it will contrast the digital screen. Do not hesitate to try it as it is quite a good chance for bringing the natural world near you.

Adding stonework, or the imagery of stonework behind the TV will create a cozy and fireplace-esque atmosphere.

Adding shelving to display artwork will break from the already ‘boxy’ feel the TV adds by nature. You will want to avoid adding any more square patterns to get around this. And shelving can help break the square monotony.

Frame the TV
In keeping with the theme of avoiding additional ‘square’ shapes, try adding a large frame around the TV itself to create a singular picture feel. When turned off, or on, the right picture frame around the TV can create a rather unique effect.
Placing the TV inside a closing armoire or sliding door enclosure will offer you the chance to hide the TV away when off. In addition, it gives you the chance to give the room a more simplistic feel and create more space.
Adding built-in cabinets with open-faced displays will allow you to showcase your style and decor around the TV. Moreover it will create storage. You can display books, sculptures, movie collections, art, and any other form of self-expression. While simultaneously creating space for storing things. Amazing, isn’t it?

If being discreet isn’t your style, try converting your TV wall into a full-on movie theater experience. Frame it in surround sound speakers to give guests and family a full on cinema experience.
Add/Incorporate a Fireplace
In the spirit of keeping the living room social and cozy, display the TV above a fireplace. This can be a wall mounted digital fireplace, or a true-to-life fireplace beneath it. This will create a warm atmosphere that still remains social and entertaining.

Paint The Wall With a Mural
If keeping the TV the only thing mounted on the wall is the goal, try converting the back wall into an artistic mural expression of your home. You can paint foliage, artwork, or quotes on the back of the wall to give it an artistic feel, without hanging anything additional.
Decorating your TV wall can be a challenging task. You want to avoid creating a ‘boxy’ feel by over blowing the wall with square shapes. In the end, you are only limited by your creativity with ways that you can break from the monotony of the ‘square’ and add new life and style to your entertainment wall.
