If you’re anything like me then you constantly find yourself struggling between wanting the latest and greatest technology at home, but also wanting said technology not to be a giant eyesore.  I mean I spend countless hours, days, months even designing every aspect of every space in my home and then I have to put a giant clunky, black metal, television on my wall with about 20 different cords all to watch The Great British Baking Show?!! Finally, a solution.

Enter Samsung’s newest game changer: the Samsung Frame TV.  And yes, the name says it all; it’s a fancy television that doubles as beautiful art the second you turn it off.  

As soon as I discovered that this was in fact a real thing, I knew I HAD to have the Frame TV by Samsung on my expansive gallery wall.  As you may remember, our gallery wall is one of my pride and joys, and was the result of a past One Room Challenge design project.  It sports 20+ pieces of original art and 3-d objects.  And in the room, which is our loft, we’ve set up a home bar where we sometimes have a little nightcap, as well as play a game or too.  Think puzzles, backgammon, etc.    

The loft could be considered an in-between space in our home, but it actually is a high-traffic area.  And whenever we have a full house over the holidays, we host a guest or two on the sleeper sofa.  So of course, I’ve wanted a TV there for some time now, but this was the one wall in my home that I was not going to sacrifice.

So let me tell you: the Samsung Frame TV is beautiful.  You can completely customize the layout and style of frame, with a shadow box, matte color, etc.  You can even decide if you want a panoramic piece, triptych or mixed layout! Plus the actual frame of the Frame is interchangeable, so rest assured it will flow seamlessly with the design of your home.

As for the art itself, there are more than 100 available pieces within 10 different genres that have been carefully curated to show when the TV isn’t being used as is set in Art Mode..  It also has a motion detection setting so whenever the Samsung Frame senses someone walking into the room it will automatically go into Art Mode turning your art of choice on if you don’t want the TV to stay on constantly.  You can choose from landscapes, abstracts, wild life, urban architecture…you name it.  And if you’d prefer to showcase family photos instead, you can upload them directly yourself.  It’s all controlled and easily changed by your smartphone.  I mean, #GENIUS.  And because it connects to your phone you can also run apps like Spotify, YouTube, and Instagram right on The Frame as well as search the internet.

My husband, of course, appreciates the specs of The Frame TV. It’s 4K UHD, features a Smart View and one remote control, as well as a no-gap flush to the wall mount and only two cords.  That’s right only 2 small, thin cords!!  I have a feeling I’ll be catching him watching the Cubs in here more times than I can count!

I’m extremely thrilled to welcome this new addition to my gallery wall, the only sad thing is now all of my other televisions pale in comparison.  Time to switch them all out don’t you think?! #iwish  And in case you were wondering, yes The Great British Baking Show is absolutely my favorite Television Show.  Truly, MKR
