Hi there, We have an old red brick fireplace with a rather large hearth and I'm just looking for some advice on how to update it. The ceiling is also cedar planks so the double dose of brown and reddish hues is a little much. We will eventually install hardwood instead of the carpet as well which will introduce yet another dark tone. We were going to paint the walls and stain the fireplace charcoal to eliminate the red tone so we could avoid painting the ceiling but I'm not sure that will be enough so may end up painting the ceiling. Any advice on the fireplace would be appreciated. Thank you.
