Close up both openings. But it is not going to be a clean, quick project because you need to deal with removing the existing mantel and replacing it. Which isn't to say that it will be a difficult project, just a bit more involved than nailing up some new drywall. Very much worth the effort though because what ya' got there is pretty bad.

Holy smokes, that tv is not good there. For starters it is waaayyyyy too high. I think the fireplace is a nice design element, but the tv needs to fins another home.

I like the new version of A. Some hospitals have a temperature settings on the controls of the shower. I suppose this luxury item is available in retail stores.

I have found that small (but necessary) things are overlooked in planning bathrooms. Do you know where your towel racks will go? Will you have enough wall space for the length you desire?

Those wall fireplaces are tough to place. I think most times they can look a bit cheesy, very Vegas. I'd prefer to see a piece of art or a nice mirror.

Actually, neither counter works with the floors. Quartz is too cold makes the floors look more beige. Keep looking for a more solid counter.

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the colors from that wallpaper. The raspberry has a bright fun vibe. The green looks bold and classic. The yellow is cheerful and airy without being overpowering. I am sure this is the most helpful comment of the thread ;-) But really, there are no bad choices here.

I think that blue would look the best. Olychick posted a picture of a tub that is, to me, the perfect color blue for your bathroom.

I like you living room! If you also use an area rug in your dining room you can do dark wood for your dining set. You just don't want a dark wood table on top of a dark wooden floor, without a rug. I would look for an area rug in a solid very light grey to tie in with your living room rug. This dining set would look stunning. Good luck!

You could choose something with dark wood, like your floors. Something similar to this below?

I love the lime wash look. We act tried a temporary lime wash product on the front right but didn’t look like we expected. With the triangle roof gable it looked like a snowman with a hat on. Lol. Wondering if painted brick would give the same appearance


The back is very tradiional with porches and looks great. The front not so much. Trying to stick with the traditioral look on the back of the house do you have any other suggestions

I didn't quite get the colors right here. Maybe someone with a keener color sense will chime in. But hope at least it gives you some ideas of what might work or what doesn't work for you.

To my eye, the problem with your house is the black roof. It's just so heavy looking. When it comes time to replace it, consider a softer color, then blend in the gables with a harmonious paint color. Other than that, just some dressing up is all your pretty home needs. I've added an eyebrow dormer (less expensive than adding a porch, I believe). I've added a traditional Colonial door in a brighter color, softened the shutter color to an off black/dark gray, added a wider, more formal walkway, and replaced the post lamp with a stately one. The walkway & driveway were edged with "plants" -- maybe ivy or monkey grass or vinca minor or pachysandra would work here.



Also, I got rid of the molding over the windows.

It's probably from Vanguard Furniture or Lee Industries. Both are trade only manufacturers, so you would most likely have to go through a designer. If you would like something similar, I would check RH or crate and barrel. Either of those would have a shelter/track arm similar to that style. Also, make sure you get a Crypton of other performance fabric if this is for a family room so that you can avoid stains and spills. Good luck!
