I have a problem area in my downstairs living area. Truth be told, there are lots of “problem areas” in my home. Is an indecisive, obsessive–compulsive, Type-A perpetual home improver ever happy with her abode? However, there is one spot that has been bugging me above all others lately…our fireplace.
Something about it isn’t working for me. Is the blue to bright? Should the painting be rested (as shown) or hung? Is it the ugly yellow oak that is off? I can’t put my finger on it, but I do have some ideas on ways to improve the situation. I think the mantle needs to be bulked up. It is our planned project for August. Stay tuned for details and reveal.
In the meantime, do you have suggestions for upping my fireplace’s aesthetic value? I am a little lost and totally open to suggestions…
