Cathy Flemming
The artist looks like Tang Mei Wen's work. Cutter and Cutter in St.Augustine, Florida.. ask for Patricia. They handle Tang'swork!!!!! The prices range from $6,000-$50,000.

The contrast looks great ! What type of product was used to create the black background? Texture? Color of paint?

Here's an example of how we've used bookshelves and a fireplace together in one space, with a similar color scheme to what you've described.

If my walls are SW macadamia, can I just paint that on the back? The bookshelves are already the trim color (off white) and I just wanted them to pop but the red brick is an issue. I am hoping the macadamia wall paint harmonizes with the red brick. I considered SW Kilim that is soo popular, but it looked too pink. Thank you for your advice! It is an entire house paint job and I need to be sure I pick best paint colors.

It would really help if you knew the name of the artist of this painting, it's so beautiful that I would love to have one as well. Is there any way that you can find out and get back to me.

Can you please tell me if there is a picture for the top of this unit? - We are going to build a mini version of this in our new home. Space is limited on our fireplace wall, therefore we will eliminate and downsize different sections. Any suggestions? Is this unit built clear to ceiling. Do you have any other pictures of this unit showing the top, or any other units similar? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Get More Bang From Your Bookcase
A bookcase nook can be the perfect place to display a special work of art. A portrait, a painting or a favorite photograph can add a personal touch to what can be the focal point of the room. A bookcase is also a wonderful place for what can often be the necessary evil of décor: the TV. Surrounded by molding, arches and books, a TV would blend in nicely.
Jessica McClendon added this to Learn When to Splurge for True Design Happiness
Sure, dark wood might require a daily swipe with the Swiffer, but if looking at those floors makes your happy, you won't mind the extra effort that goes into the upkeep.
