So for those of you that asked last week, here is a picture of what my new fireplace looks like.  Bear in mind that I am not living in the house yet, so this is not my decor and the walls will be white.   As soon as you open the front door, this is what you look at.  I really hate it.  

So here is the plan right now.

1. Replace the current tile with a small marble subway or herringbone.

2. Rip down the mantle and make something white wood like these:

Basically this would be a dream:

What do you think?
