Aesthetic Monitor Display

You might be wondering if there’s even such thing as an “aesthetic monitor” since most displays are pretty generic and give off a tech-y feel. The key is to use a more minimal monitor, along with a monitor arm. White monitors tend to work for most aesthetic setups. You can even paint your monitor to match your color aesthetic – tutorial for that here.

Use this monitor to display anything from aesthetic study websites, to the best study with me videos!
