What Houzz contributors are saying:

A gray and purple color scheme and bold but sleek design elements, such as the large concrete fireplace, make this room elegant and comfortable. The fireplace also serves as a room divider.

Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Artfully Asymmetrical Fireplaces
Gray days. A floor-to-ceiling fireplace in all gray gives the illusion of a dividing wall rather than an actual fireplace. This wall acts as the focal point, so the fireplace becomes the accent. Tip: Change the direction of the striations on the fireplace material from vertical to horizontal to make a room appear wider rather than taller.
