Are you a passionate interior designer at heart? Is your home an aesthetically pleasing reflection of your personality? Cheers girl, we’re on the same level here!
But gosh, I always disliked how the tv messed up my perfect vision. It’s just a huge black rectangle that doesn’t work with my living room design ideas.
But then… the Frame TV enters the chat!

Samsung Frame TV: Pinterest Interior Design Goals!
Wow! Samsung has heard my plea and they have created the perfect solution to make my inner interior designer SO happy! They gave us the Samsung Frame TV.. Pinterest GOALS!! *insert angelic ‘aaaah’ sounds*
This frame tv changes everything.
You can now integrate your huge television into your interior and match it with your color palette, your vibe and your personality. It’s so easy to make the Samsung frame tv look like art in your living room! I’m obsessed!!
What is the point of a Frame TV?
First and foremost, it’s a tv so you use it to.. you know.. watch movies and shows. It’s a smart tv, so you can download all your favorite apps and streaming services.
But what makes the frame tv special is the fact that it has a special art mode, which can be activated with the press of a button. It can even detect when there’s no one in the room, so it turns itself off to save energy until someone enters the room again!
The brightness of the screen goes down in art mode, to make it look like an actual framed piece of art! Because the screen is made specifically for this purpose, there won’t be any screen burn-in, which would be the case with a regular tv that shows still images too often and too long.

Styling the Frame TV: Gallery Wall Inspo
After staring at my beautiful tv for what felt like hours, I realized I had no idea what to do now. How do I style my frame tv? So many choices!! In the end I chose to turn it into a piece of wall decor by installing the frame tv wall mounted.
The tv comes with a beautiful frame that magnetically attaches to the edges of the tv, to make it look like a framed piece of art.
Is the light wood print frame that I’m showing in these pictures not your style? No worries! There’s so many options, you’ll find something that matches your interior.
To sell the illusion, I chose to create a gallery wall by hanging posters with matching frames around the tv. Because my interior is very light with touches of beige and sand, I opted for abstract posters and pictures that match the vibe.
To make the tv blend in with the posters, I set up a matching picture for the tv’s art mode. Now it looks like one coherent gallery wall in my living room and no one would know that it’s actually a tv!
How to build a gallery wall with the Samsung Frame TV?
I started by measuring how much space I have around the tv, and how many frames would look good around it. The tv is pretty massive, so play around with different sized frames. Obviously the tv is the biggest center piece, but try to even it out with good placement of different sized frames.
Do you find it difficult to create a nice composition? Then try to copy what I did! In the pictures below I’m sharing the sizes of my art wall. Whatever you do, don’t make it too symmetrical. Keep it interesting!
Once you know which frames you’re going to use and you have decided on the placement, it’s time to order everything! I like to get my frames and posters from Posterstore, because it’s super easy to find matching art and you can add the right size frames to your order in one click.
And since I’m not a fan of drilling holes in my walls, I used Command strips to hang everything in place. Make sure to use a spirit level to make sure everything is even!
Art Wall Organizer Template
To make things a bit easier I have created an easy-to-use drag & drop template. Use it to play around with the placement of different sized photo frames around the TV. Once you’ve found the perfect composition, drag and drop images into the template, they will snap to the frames automatically. This way it’s super easy to build your own art wall, before committing!
Other wall mounted Frame TV ideas
Whether you are displaying your frame tv wall mounted or not, there’s so many ways to make this work!
I have already told you about my frame tv gallery wall, but there’s other ways to make this baby look pretty. The frame tv above a fireplace would look AMAZING! Or you know what would also be great? To add two wall mounted lamps around it, or maybe one of those horizontal museum lamps above the tv, to make it look like a fancy piece of art!
