Suggest a matle for this unfinished Gas Fireplace?
Can someone suggest a surround idea for this gas fireplace? It's doublesided, the other side is the family room. This side is the great room and I plan to make it a cozy space with dark furniture, although the trim in the room is white and I think I'd like a white wood mantle.
and another view
Note that this is not my furniture, these photos are the previous owner's furniture. They have it separated into two separate spaces. We plan to have it as one big warm sitting area with some dark leather couches, large chairs, and we plan to use the space for game nights, entertaining, etc. The painting on the wall would not be there, nor would the screen, dining room table, etc. I'd appreciate any advice to draw the eye to the fireplace and add to the warmness I plan on instilling in this room. Thanks so much!
