mantle, large piece over mantle, coffee table
shelf for lots of candles...any way to put a "ledge" to sit on by the fire?
add track lighting from ceiling? Way to combine modern space with rustic elements. Maybe put a large picture or decorative wall hanging over fireplace with sconces on side. or do that on the wall without the fireplace
creative idea for family pics. black/white, large, no frame
add sitting ledge? also gives the mantle something to "sit" on
could use large mirror to open the space - either on fireplace wall or the other one
curtain/fabric to create a look/ambiance
keep fireplace wall with large decor and on the 'side' wall, use lighting to create a different feel
large strip of fabric from fireplace wall (or the other one) to the ceiling to create a sense of 2/3 dimentional???
one large picture or a collage of medium to small pics
many lights/candles scattered randomly on wall with contrast of larger solid light on other wall
combination of shelving and pics vs just hanging pics. Also the comb. of brown shelving with black frames ...probably would only work if all pics are black/white? or antique?
what about hanging lighting/candles/plants/decor? down from the ceiling?
pics up staircase
does a lower/flat 'coffee table' make higher ceilings look higher?
cool/different wall decor idea
use of color, texture, lighting...warmth
