Here is to crossing another home resolution off the list! I am happy to share that the new media console is exactly what I was looking for.
As you can see above, this one small change has made such a huge difference. The furniture better coordinates, with the cool crisp white and the warm and dark wood finishes mixing together nicely. Another big improvement - having the TV at the proper height. While we never noticed it too much before, the other stand was just much too high. This height makes for a much more enjoyable viewing experience.
One of the best features of this console is that it offers wire management. Yay no more crazy ugly cords peaking out! Reggie is a huge fan!
With the new TV height being so much lower, I am considering expanding the gallery wall to cover the entire wall, including above the TV - thoughts?
I've also found a new ottoman! Paired with this chair, which is one of my favorite pieces in the apartment, this is now the perfect reading spot - so long as the TV isn't on to distract me.
Really happy with the look of this right now!
