fireplace opinions needed
Here's a photo of our current fireplace. We had a mid century modern home and we are updating the entire space. Does anyone have any ideas for how the fireplace can be updated? Our style is warm modern/contemporary. It has a nice stone slab so we are thinking of maybe refacing or keeping the white brick. To the right of the fireplace is a louvre window that will be replaced with a casement and a solid window next to it and ocean view to the right (it's kind of a strange layout due to mixed focal point -fireplace and view) During the day, your eye is drawn first to the view. At night, probably the fireplace, especially if it is lit. What would you do?
