Oh please, don't paint that stone! Sell your home and move if it troubles you! That is a beautiful room and the stone fits it....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Industrial Chic Hearths
Seen from all sides, this panoramic hearth warms from every angle in the room while adding a subtle room division.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design in America's Happiest City
The Valley Lane home, also designed by architect Mark Gerwing, is a long open space with a large fireplace dividing the kitchen and dining areas from the living room. What a great place to come home to and light a fire after a long hike or time spent skiing.
Bring it inside. These types of chimneys aren't just for exterior wall applications. Metal chimneys are ideal design elements for two-sided fireplaces, where they help keep the interior spaces more open and connected. This interior wouldn't be nearly as open, bright and spacious with a boxy chimney rising up from the fireplace.
