Fireplace ideas
Tamara Whitney
February 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Because of the space and angles in our living room we had to place the TV above the fireplace. I actually do not mind it there at all, but now I am not sure what to so with the rest of the fireplace. There is not a lot of room to display anything on the mantle now and I hate the brown tile work. The paints brick I can work with if maybe there was more color elsewhere? I am drawing a blank with it!

I would keep other objects to a minimum on the mantel. There is not much room for them. You could try something tall, and plant or tall light fixture to the left of the fireplace. The tile doesn't bother me too much. It could be trimmed out with a small beveled edge oak trim around the perimeter.
