TVs have traditionally posed a challenge to interior designers and home decor enthusiasts, especially in the bedroom. Many people want to be able to enjoy their favorite shows and movies from bed, but they don’t necessarily want to lose valuable wall space to a big black box.
Enter The Frame TV. It’s got the high-resolution picture quality of QLED that you’d expect from Samsung, but more importantly, it lets you display your choice of artwork when you’re not watching TV — finally, a TV that serves as a blank canvas with limitless design possibilities.
For designers like Jeremiah Brent, of Jeremiah Brent Design, The Frame TV offers a whole new way to approach bedroom design. Brent partnered with Samsung to decorate an elegant bedroom around The Frame TV.
“The fact that you can seamlessly switch from a modern abstract painting to a French Nouveau piece is really special,” he says. “Your bedroom can take on an entirely different personality.”
Brent’s “no rules” approach to California modern style is inspired by his travels to the far reaches of the world. He has built a successful career around crafting elegant spaces for celebrities and high-end clientele, and is a well-known tastemaker in the design world. He was the host of Home Made Simple on OWN, and, with his husband Nate Berkus, launched the show Nate & Jeremiah by Design on TLC.
Brent admits that TVs in the bedroom are “a dirty, dark secret” — no one actually wants the TV to be the main focus of the bedroom. The good news is that with The Frame TV’s variety of modes, you have the freedom to have your cake and eat it too (preferably in bed, while watching your favorite guilty pleasure show). The Frame TV sits flush against the wall and hangs like actual art with the No Gap Wall-mount1; you can even customize the bezels around the TV, like you would by choosing a real frame for your artwork2. What may be most exciting to a designer like Brent, though, is the lack of cables and cords jutting out from behind the TV (because your modern bedroom should not display the jumbled cable setup you had in your college dorm room)3. It’s what makes The Frame TV “a designer’s dream,” Brent says.
For this bedroom, Brent chose a dark wood bezel for The Frame TV to add warmth. He sought out furniture that felt textured and well-traveled, including a pair of 17th-century bookcases and a rough rope settee sofa. Brent loves to incorporate natural elements where possible, so he brought in a driftwood headboard for the bed.
The final touches? A few accessories like small bowls and vases to accent the surfaces in the room. “I always believe that less is more, and my husband does not!” Brent says. “When I look at a table, for example, and there’s 30 things on it, I start to sweat because I don’t feel like you visually can appreciate the things on them.”
Brent says when designing a bedroom, the key is to focus on the different “moments” you want to enjoy in that space, such as sleeping, enjoying a cup of coffee, or binging on your favorite show.
“I think an investment in your bedroom is an investment in your future.” Brent concludes. “It’s where you start and end each day, so take the time to really create a space that rises up to meet you.”
