Ideas for a small fireplace and adjacent 36" alcove
We just moved into a condo with a fairly small great room. it is truly a blank canvas. The current color scheme is white on white. The fireplace is surrounded by wood trim but lacks a mantel. In the alcove glass shelves on brass rails were hung by the previous owner.
My furniture is mainly early American antiques. Also have a few antique oriental rugs, one of which I included in the photo. They are mainly red, blue and gold. Pretty traditional color palette.
In the kitchen, which is a whole different animal, the family pet and residnt paint chip expert is arguing that dark gray looks stunning next to honey oak. More on that later.
