fireplace color

Tuesday, March 05, 2013


We are getting ready to start painting at Casa Niche and I am also contemplating how to tackle this 745 foot fireplace wall.    

{that's my eyeball measurement--give or take a couple hundred feet} 

The electric blue is going bye-bye as are the marble tiles and brass trim insert...maybe even the mantle. To rock, brick, or tile the entire height of the fireplace wall to the ceiling would be lots of dollars. Obvioulsy, we could stop the tile/rock line at any point--5ft, 10 ft, even 20 ft tall. Or, we could cover it in trim  But, I spotted a fireplace wall on pinterest that had been simply been painted a dark color and loved the effect.   






 This particular Dutch design firm, Home Unique, uses this idea a lot. Many homes in their portfolio have a beautifully painted wall behind a modestly sized fireplace insert.

While I am not a fan of the accent wall, I do really like this painted fireplace wall idea. What are your thoughts?
