This is so serene to me. I love the celedon color on the walls, in contrast with the black marble center and gold detailing on the screen.
Painting the fireplace surround and adding glass tile has such a big impact. Note the minimalist decor on the mantel.
If I had a brick fireplace, I’d consider painting it white like this one. But I’m not a big fan of the tulips… I’d love to see a series of orchids and an oversized black & white print above the mantel.
Don’t like the wall color, but I dig the symmetry of three.

I am going to do some hunting around my house for objects d’art that are begging to come out and be displayed. Hoping to upgrade my own mantle decor soon.
