Would navy walls work in this room?
This is our future billiard room (you can see part of the table - mahogany I think with burgundy felt). The fireplace was completely behind a wall so we had the contractor open it up. We're keeping the brick exposed but adding a mantle. I want to paint the room navy but I'm not sure it will go with the brick and/or pool table. Maybe FPE Guggenheim # G028 or BM Hale Navy, Old Navy or something similar for wall color. The picture shows the west window and we have 2 north windows above the full wall built in bookcase. All the trim will be BM dove white so the room shouldn't be too dark. My concerns:
1. Will navy go with this room or should I pick another color. I love deep saturated colors.
2. I'm thinking that leaving the brick exposed is not a good idea - too casual. My other 3 fireplaces on this floor are much more "formal" with marble surrounds. Should I cover up the brick? It was never meant to be exposed as you can see by the workmanship. Part of me though likes seeing this part of the house (built in 1825)
Please excuse the mess - it's a dumping ground right now.
