How to stylishly integrate a flatscreen TV in your living room:

A huge TV screen can be too "in-your-face", if what you want is a cosy, art-filled space. Create a feature wall that the TV screen will blend into. Start by using darker wall hues — grey or wood tones go well with black TV screens. As exemplified in the design by D'perception Ritz, pictured above, incorporate the TV screen into a wall of stylish bookshelves with a console below to hold set-top boxes, remote controls, DVDs and other electronic gadgets.

If your living area is small, be reminded that experts recommend that the size of TV screens should be a third of the distance from your spot on the sofa for strain-free viewing.
