Centering wall decor with tv in corner

kellytornabeneJanuary 26, 2013
Hi, I need help with figuring out how to center pictures on my living room wall. There is a tv in one corner, so I'm not sure if it would be best to measure from the actual corner or from where the tv is. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

We may also be purchasing a new tv stand, which would probably raise the height of the tv.

Why center them? You could do a free form arrangement.

I was toying with the idea of hanging several related prints in a horizontal row, but may go with a free form collage of photos instead. Either way, do you think it would look best to measure an equal distance from both corners to account for the tv, or should I just start near the tv and extend over the couch as far as necessary?? I know I may need to just experiment and see what looks best, but I was hoping for opinions to help guide me.
Thanks so much!

I'd like to see a pic of the entire wall from end to end. Currently, I can't get a sense of where the wall ends. Can you step back and take another pic?

Here's a better view. It's a very small room. I've thought about mounting the tv on the center of the wall, but the couch is our main seating area, and it would require people to turn their heads a bit too much, hence the corner.

You can nicely group a cluster in the open wall space between the tv and the sofa back. Look at it as negative space and group the photos or artwork in that area. It is less a matter of being mathematically correct and more a matter of creating visual balance. Hope that makes sense.
