    Have an Interior Designer stop by and take a look. It is less expensive than making the wrong decision and have to change it and do it again. You get what you pay for.
    Good luck.

    This is a Valor Portrait fireplace that is a available with coal, logs, or rocks, and 8 different fronts. No other manufacturer makes a fireplace remotely similar and can be purchased from a Valor dealer. The Valor website is www.valorfireplaces .com which shows the various fronts, and has a convenient dealer locator.

    @gigaenvy: Thanks for the info. Is "arogant" a trade name specific to one manufacturer, or is it your opinion of the color (in which case the correct spelling is ARROGANT)?

    Please note there is black in the floor, the TV, the wall surrounding the TV, the TV frame, the shelves and the chandelier. I guess they are all slightly different, yet they work together. The marble is "Portoro" which my dealers tell me is the rarest and extremely expensive now. All for Black!

    Dear aymeegb,
    Thank you so much for your kind remark. Unfortunately I no longer have those records, fortunately they are not important. Every room and city light condition and space reflect light differently as well as color so there is nothing like testing, so you can even do better, I hope. Try different samples. This is a smooth base or background a matt finish.
    Good luck and keep me posted,

    I guess about 4' -4'6" to the floor from the bottom

    Thank you Jerry that was very helpful. I really wanted to put the TV above a Valor fire but I have a bad neck and think it will be too high. Will have to build cupboards at either side instead and put TV on one side at an angle. Thanks again, yours looks great.

3. Above the fireplace. Many people are not fans of TVs above a fireplace, but if you don’t mind the look, consider painting the fireplace surround black. This chic library in San Francisco provides a fine example.Design Debate: Is It OK to Hang the TV Over the Fireplace?

Mary Jo Bowling added this to TGIR: The Case of the Disappearing TVApr 17, 2014

In the business of writing about architecture and design, you quickly learn that televisions are like guilty pleasures — almost everybody has one, but some go to great lengths to make sure no one else finds out about it. I believe I’ve seen every conceivable technique for hiding the so-called “idiot box,” from paintings that slide over the set to motorized screens that rise from custom furniture. But recently I noticed that some designers have figured out an elegant solution: Simply paint the wall behind the set black, and it fades into the woodwork, so to speak. That’s what the designers at Jerry Jacobs Design did in this room, and you might have to look twice before spotting the set over the fireplace.

Judith Taylor Designs added this to When Decorating Styles Collide: Practical Ways to Merge TastesJul 30, 2013

Unify. The architecture here, including the molding and the fireplace, reflects the period when the home was built. To update period architecture, keep the furnishings really simple with clean structured shapes. This will lend a modern vibe and create a nice harmony.Here the simplified shapes are unified with color. The sculptural forms of furniture pieces like these will please those who desire strong, clean lines, while the traditionalist will enjoy the overall structure's being anchored in tradition.

Shawn Gauthier added this to Great Seating: Cozy Up to the FireplaceDec 22, 2011

Want to sneakily add in more seating in a less than obvious fashion? Replace a typical coffee table with an oversized ottoman. It will still carry the same effect as a coffee table — ground the center of the layout — and doubles as extra fireside seating when you have guests.

Becky Harris added this to Favorite Blooms: Summer SunflowersJun 18, 2011

Subdued sunflower yellows and dark accents create a wonderfully warm mood in this library.

Scheer & Co. Interior Design added this to Well-Styled ElectronicsJun 18, 2011

Insetting and framing the TV and painting the wall behind it a dark color (chocolate brown, in this case) makes this ubiquitous electronic device blend in with its surroundings. Plus, I think there's something nice about ensconcing a TV among throngs of books.

Add a fireplace, bookcases and a television and this becomes a family room, library and living room in one.

2: Camouflage with a dark color. Still not loving how much the black shiny rectangle jumps off the wall? Camouflage your TV with a background wall of black, brown, navy, charcoal gray — any dark color of your choosing. This room takes it all the way with the black stone fireplace and ebony floors. I especially love the recessed niche with what appears to be a moulding detail on the inside.

Margaret Everton added this to Mid-Century Modern With a Touch of ParisFeb 16, 2011

The formality of Mid-Century Modern parlors meets with the living passion and intellectualism of Paris. The French are so great at keeping their stacks of beloved stuff looking artistic and deliberate.

Kerrie Kelly Design Lab added this to Design 2011: Black Casework, Doors and CabinetryJan 1, 2011

A black mantle and hearth gives this seating area an updated look while breaking up the look of books.

Lily Gahagan added this to Readers' Choice: The Top Living Rooms of 2010Dec 15, 2010

Most of the popular living rooms we saw were neutral tones, but here yellow and black break that generalization wide open. Traditional touches like wide molding and built-in bookshelves kept the palette from reading too strong.
