Overhaulling family room with 2 sided fireplace (photos)

elcrotserApril 5, 2012

My family room (22 * 13 ft) has dark stained wood beams running horizontally across the room. The ceilings are 8 feet. The wood flooring is a honey color. The window and doorway trim will be white. We just removed the panelling and taped and mudded the unfinished drywall and primed it.

Issues for me are trying to decide whether or not to paint the beams white, what type of trim to use around the beams and what to do about the two sided fireplace with orange-ish colored brick. I also think that the mantel needs an overhaul as well. Looking for all suggestions.
