I’ve long been frustrated by the light-sucking black covers of our electronics that have not yet caught on to the Apple-evolution of aluminums, whites and golds.
TVs, soundbars and speakers are still ugly black boxes that have not caught up with the trends of recent years. This is why I always try to figure out ways to make them blend with my #whiteliving space.
CREATING A BLACK & WHITE GALLERY WALL AROUND THE TV
In our bedroom, I always have a black and white photo wall and arrange the gallery around the TV frame so the TV frame is part of the photo wall. This is how it looked in Berlin:
And now this is how it looks in Manila:
I have yet to adjust one of the signs which was covered when we upgraded the size of our tv 3 years ago. But you get what I mean by trying to make it blend with the gallery wall.
FINDING A WHITE TV
In our living room I was able to find a 48inch white Samsung TV in Berlin for 600 Euros. White TVs are not available here in the Philippines, but much you can definitely find white TVs on Amazon and in Europe, because DiploBigBro was able to get a white curved TV in Switzerland, where he is based. He is also a Diplomat. The 2nd out of 3 diplomats in their family.
This is how it looks in our white living room. Doesn’t the white border make a huge difference?
