I believe this is why "holiday cottages" are so appealing - the best are tastefully decorated, but with a minimum of 'things', so they neither look nor feel cluttered. For a week or so, we can enjoy living in a tidy and tranquil environment. And what a joy to see an actual piano in one of the rooms, rather than just a "statement piece" !

I don't think it's a good idea not to take in consideration the position of the TV when designing your living room, especially if you are a person who watches TV. We should design our homes to work for us and make us feel good, not for people who will eventually visit us, and who will not stay for even a night over.
