The room looks big, but I suspect the arcane mysteries of the photographer's art at work here. The TV looks impossibly small to modern eyes. Nowadays we'd just sit in the bed with a small glowing rectangle a few inches from our eyes, and absorb entertainment in that fashion.
This is an improvement. You know what it's like when you're in bed, ready to sleep, and you have to get out of bed to turn the TV off? It's a commitment. You have to be sure you're done with TV.
