Texture twist. You can use texture when combining a fireplace and television on the same wall. The extra texture actually makes the components subtler; the eye skims over the TV and fireplace instead focusing on the wood stone and cubbies. Even if your fireplace is front and center you can camouflage it by using the same neutral colors for the firebox as the surrounding stone.

Stone. There are many options of stone to choose from for a fireplace facing. I love to wander at stone yards looking at all the different varieties. Stones such as fieldstone come in many shapes colors and textures. I suggest finding the best installer you can and work with him or her to select the best stone for your fireplace. Around $4.000 to $7.000 for stone and installation.

Positioning the TV asymmetrically within a media wall helps de-emphasize it further making the wall feel like a composition that includes various items (such as flowers and vases) instead of making the screen the central star of the show.
