What configuration for floating shelves around mounted TV?
We just mounted a 60" flat screen smack dab in the center of a blank wall in our living room (the left wall in my photo below). Most inspiration photos I see for wall-mounted TVs are in some kind of built in unit or above a fireplace--the fireplace was not an option due to its structure, and we can't afford a built in, so I'm searching for an alternative that will still look nice and finished.
I love the inspiration photo below and in this idea book (Ideabook: TV mount) and the use of floating shelves to add some visual interest to the wall. Our TV wall is about 13' long and I am not sure how to scale a media/console table and some floating shelves on either side.
Does anyone have suggestions for configurations/size of floating shelves (e.g. symmetrical on both sides of TV, staggered, etc.)? Also, what kind of media stand would look right in this long space?
