We've finished most of our basement family/media room remodel, but lack a couple of major details. This is a blurry pic, but the walls are a light grey. The curtains besides the fireplace are a bronzey-brown and are only decorative, there are no windows. the coffee table is not normally there, and we'll be replacing anyway. The fireplace is the problem. We painted the 2 columns the same grey as the walls just to see how it would look. We are thinking of tearing off the columns and mantlepiece, and tiling over the whole thing with a stone veneer/tile that's a little more modern like the 2 pictured. Opinions please?
