Decorating Around A Flat Screen TV

I stumbled on to a really fun group on Pinterest and their work got me thinking about our fireplace.

Kevin and I talk about where we’re going to (eventually) put our TV a lot when we’re sitting in our (still far from finished) living room. He would like for the screen to be out in the open…

…while I, on the other hand, would like for it to be mounted behind closed doors.

Not necessarily behind doors above our fireplace- I’m thinking ours would hang behind bookcase doors on one side of it. So as I lay here recuperating, I’m curious to hear which you prefer. I look forward to watching the results come in on the poll below and thanks in advance for any advice you might have for us in the comment section! XO

    Never over fireplace, would just be too uncomfortable you or guests stretching your necks. Hutch with doors would be fantastic! (don’t like the couches on the sides of fireplace with TV overhead either, Even worse for twist ‘n turn neck strain – but it does look nice) :)
