It looks sort of awesome the way it is, no? *Sigh.*
But seriously, which looks better? Dark gray or white? Or something completely different?
Rachel makes me realize that I haven't specified what the color scheme will be in this room. This is the inspiration photo for the room:
The rug will get swapped out for a light blue one and there will be pops of red. So I'd like the fireplace to have some drama . . . but more of the black-white spectrum kind. And of course I'll put a bird on it. :)
