Need neutral colors, fireplace and books/entertainment shelving redesi

goozyOctober 21, 2013
The home I purchase in Baja Sur has sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez. I need ideas for redesigning the fireplace area that will also have book shelving and entertainment space. I don't care for TV screens on the mantel. Something in a soft eggshell for the color maybe. And add rich wood for a warm and natural feel. Love some feedback.

Your ideas are on the money! I would bathe the entire room in subtle variations of a creamy warm based white. I would round out the angles of your mantel to better echo the shape of your kiva. I would also consider a venetian plaster treatment for your entire surround. Very subtle, very tonal and warm with accents of reclaimed wood.

Any ideas as to how to incorporate wood for bookcases? Also window treatments. I am not liking the white vinyl but can't change those for now. Is it possible trim out with wood? Any examples?

I'm thinking wood bookcases wouldn't work well with your dark furniture.

What about built ins painted black. Bookcase on the left & cabinet on the right with TV sitting on the top of the cabinet.
