Hi ... Is there a difference if you put the wood surrounding the fireplace cross-wise instead of the lines going length-wise as in the picture?

In this room, the vertical wood adds height to the ceiling, continuity with the ceiling, and beautifully creates the fireplace focal point. If the wood were horizontal on the wall, it simply would lose the impact.

Great design!
