I would like to paint the bookshelves beside my fireplace, and possibly the fireplace. My walls are currently Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige with white trim. My furniture is mainly blue. Any ideas?

I'd love to see a stone veneer on the fireplace. In various shades of brown, your shelves and walls will blend in more and support your blue furniture well.

I would build the shelves all the way to the ceiling and frame the tv in like a picture. Then I would paint the shelves either black or white depending on taste. I might take out a few shelf boards so that it is not so uniform and have room for some larger items- the room is too matchy- matchy. Way to many photo's- maybe you could condense them into a collage of some sort. I do not know your budget so just throwing out thoughts.

Thanks for the ideas for the fireplace, shelves. I was also thinking it was too busy with photos.

I think the shelves should be removed...The fireplace is not the focal point, your eyes are drawn to all the photos and shelves.
