In this Toronto living room, a couple of elements are at play. A slim fireplace allows a large TV to sit above it without too much neck strain by viewers watching from the sofas or chairs. Also, a dark (possibly marble) surround keeps the TV from creating too much of a black-box effect in the space.
This is definitely not for everyone, but if you’re looking to create a fresh, airy home, consider a concrete floor painted white and sealed. It creates a crisp backdrop that really allows light to bounce around and allows natural elements like verdant plants and natural wood to really show their character.
