I just got a couple of before pics from a little paint job i did many months ago. New house with lots of white walls . A few suggestions to add a some accent colors to give a bit more dimension to the dining room and the living room fireplace. These contemporary fireplaces can look ever so boring if kept the same as the walls. I chose the colors for the dining and painted the border on in lieu of putting up a permanent chair rail. The top trim on the fireplace is finished with a metallic bronze and gold paint.
