Please help me with this room!!
October 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My living room is capped on both ends with overwhelming rock walls from the 70's. Neither removing them or covering them is an option as these are actual rocks and not a façade. The surface is totally uneven so nothing can lay flat against it. Some of the rocks jut out several inches. The picture here shows one end of the room. The other side is a full bar completely fashioned out of the same rock mixed with a black slate top ( most of the wall behind the bar is made out of rock too). I don't even know where to begin with this room. When we moved in the walls were lined with barnwood and the room had blood red carpet. Really, really dark and awful. Believe it or not this is a massive improvement from what it was before but now I'm stuck. I need to find a way to make these rock walls work somehow.
