    I believe it is actually slate. This mantel/fireplace is similar to an antique Victorian one that I am restoring.

    Do coordinate strategically. This dark gray stone fireplace takes center stage, standing out amid warm neutral furnishings. The temptation might be to hang a dark artwork above to harmonize with the stone, but the painted gray alcoves on either side complement the fireplace enough to leave the white space above the mantel primed for a brighter piece. This painting ties in more with the yellow tiles of the fire surround, while the muted blues are picked up in the accessories.Since above-the-fireplace art is a natural focal point for a room, this can be a good place to start when deciding how to decorate and accessorize the space. Pick at least one color from your artwork and repeat it in details around the room. How far you go with this will depend on how “pulled together” you want your scheme to feel; for example, a more eclectic space than this might feature many more colors.Tip: Using a mat around a picture can add an air of formality, so it works well when you want your decor to feel classical. Here, the white-on-white effect also helps the coastal room feel airy and modern. A mat can also be used to boost the size of an artwork — useful if you have a very small piece.

    “In the main living room, we wanted to create a grown-up but, at the same time, relaxing entertaining space,” Wickenden says. “We achieved this by keeping everything light and bright, apart from the backs of the bookshelves, which we painted dark gray to give the room a little more interest and to make the accessories displayed there stand out.”Sofas:; Down Pipe dark gray bookshelf paint: Farrow & Ball; Portman ottoman: Oka; pillows: de Le Cuona and Chelsea Textiles
