This is a good way to make a bigger TV look intentional (and less like your husband won over you). Keep it alone on the wall above the console or shelf and hang another shelf above it. (design by Sarah Richardson) - Home Decor Idea
I see a lot of "almost" bookshelves. They hold books and look "design-y" but they waste energy and space. If you are really into books, it's not about the cute shelves. It's about the books. Make that space hold as many as it can.
