Can someone help me with ideas for my living room and fireplace

HeatherstimeJuly 15, 2011

I am having alot of trouble coming with solutions to cleaning or easy fix resurfacing my old fireplace and the surrounding wall with built in shelves. I want to change the color of my living room to something warm, it is a small room and I don't want to make it look smaller and I tend to enjoy ocean or victorian themes. I don't know if I should paint the older built in book shelves to match the new wall color, whatever it may be. The furniture is beige and the tables are oak. I am so lost with this room. Any help is greatly appreciated!

How do I attache a picture of the living room?

I'm going to suggest you post your questions in the home decorating forum. I think you'll get lots of help there. to post pictures you have to upload them to a pic hosting website like photobucket. once they are there, copy the html code for the pic and paste it into the body of your message. It will just look like a bunch of text, but when you hit preview, you should see your picture. The folks on decorating forum will want pics for sure.
