Bright White Fireplace

This living room is broken into three seating areas, including this one by the fireplace. Keeping the surround a bright white keeps the focus on the bright furnishings from Pal + Smith. Designed By: Pal + Smith; Photo By: Eric Staudenmaier for California Home + Design

That is a Pal + Smith sofa. The style is called "Muse". Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sometimes all you need to transform a space is a fresh coat of white paint. Designer Melissa Palazzo of the Newport Beach design firm PAL + SMITH is known for her stellar use of color. By painting the fireplace surround a bright white, she kept the space feeling bright and cheerful but not overwhelming. More: 16 Stunningly Beautiful Fireplaces
A fireplace can liven up a simple white space. Instead of going with a traditional arrangement, try an asymmetrical one. A thick black mantel gives the feature dimension.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Bright White
Pop Up: Bright White With Hits of ColorWhite is a good choice if you are a collector of objects or art. Nothing makes color and pattern pop like bright white. And it gives even kids' scribbles a gallery-style backdrop.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Wonderful Ways to Colorize a White-Walled Room
8. Have fun with upholstery fabrics. A room with white walls can definitely take lots of color in fabrics. Natural sunlight helps, too. Select three complementary colors and repeat them in pillows, art and accessories.

Love how the fireplace looks. Updated with white paint. Not overtly modern (so not feeling cold). You can also put TV above it. Fireplace does not have to take center stage.
