I think a cool, dark accent color behind the fireplace would bring a lot to the living room. The dark accent wall, fireplace and custom wood floors add warmth to this open, modern living room. Big windows flood the space with tons of natural light.
I could see using this in my living room without the wood treatment. Love thus basement look! Great wood treatment on tv wall. rRevere Pewter by Ben Moore Ben Moore Revere Pewter. The walls are painted in Revere Pewter from Ben Moore
