Love the accent of the portrait silhouettes which add for a great conversation piece.

Have you ever thought of adding a custom scree - If you go to you will see a product designed specifically for that style of prefabricated metal wood burning fireplace.

Similar colors are Koala Bear 780D-4 and Ultra Pure White by Behr.

In my experience Koala Bear is much darker than this color. I have Koala Bear samples painted on several of my walls and it is almost dark brown. I wonder what the actual color is....

There are many online stores that carry this cherry print. It is called "Seek Happiness" by Rodney White. Here are a few links to get you started:

Depending on mount, material, and size, the pricing may all be different.

What color are the walls?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to Good Dogs in Design
How adorable is the idea of including your dog's silhouette along with the rest of the family's above the mantle?
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Painted Fireplace Mantels Add Pizzazz
Use a good-quality high-gloss paint. Use various size paintbrushes to get into small, detailed areas as well as larger mantel areas. A narrow mantel in white may look skimpy, but you can pump up the volume by painting it the same color as your tiles.
3. Family silhouettes. If you are in the market for new art to spruce up your walls, why not make it personal? Search for "custom silhouettes" on Etsy to find many great options. Most artists ask you to send in a clear profile picture of each subject to base the silhouette on. You can have the human members of your family done, of course, but many artists are happy to tackle pets, too.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Black
A black fireplace surround and mantel. Classic, simple, elegant.
