I was asked, if I could do an interior styling with the Samsung Curved TV, and I gladly accepted that challenge. The curved TV design is very elegant and I could easily see it fit into the nordic style.
It made me think about the living room, and how much our TV habits has changed over the last couple of years. All the streaming services and less flow TV watching. Every family member with their own screens. But I believe, it still has big value to watch TV together, whether it is TV-series, movies or documentaries. Shared stories, that gives you something to talk about afterwards.
So my goal was to create a space for TV watching that’s cozy and a place adjustable for more or less people together at the same time. A zone for the kids and their friends, the whole family together, or you and your friends.
My take on the styling was to use the wall and the floor for decoration, green plants and make the TV become part of the interiors.
5 tips for decorating with the curved TV:
1. Use a bookshelf
With many streaming services and a smart TV like this you don´t need DVDs and there are no extra wires hanging from the TV, so there’s actually no reason for a traditional media furniture with cabinet doors. I think it’s a good idea to use the space under the TV for books, magazines and little stillebens with ceramics.
2. Add green plants
It creates a cozy space and the organic shapes makes the big screen look less tech. In my styling, I have used the light woven baskets as plant holders. It’s a big screen so it´s ok with a bigger indoor tree besides the TV.
3. Create a cozy space on the floor
Use one or more big soft rugs on the floor, throw in a mattress and a bunch of soft cushions, and add some plaids.
4. Use the wall behind it for decoration
Since the TV is not hanging on the wall, you can use the space behind it for decoration. Paint the wall in a soft color or you can hang a wallpaper poster, as in my styling.
Add lots of popcorn for the right cinematic feeling
…and now let the streaming begin. You are all set for the fall season with lots of binge watching with family and friends.
I have been testing the curved TV at home, and I must admit I´m already addicted. The screen is really great, and the user interface is so logical and easy. All my streaming apps are now together and incorporated in the TV. There´s only one remote control and it´s super easy to navigate. The curved screen is great for movies and TV-series. I´m a fan….
