A fireplace surround is a statement in any home, especially when it's this huge. This dated fireplace was ready for its makeover.
When I was asked to help with the makeover of this 1980s living room, I immediately fixated on the mantel. It's huge, floor to ceiling, covers half of the room, and it's the first thing guests see.
My idea is to take the 1980s living room and create a modern family retreat for the stylish young family. 'From stale to sleek and stylish' is the mojo of this makeover project.
With a focus on the fireplace surround as the main piece of this makeover, the homeowners are saying goodbye to the surrounding parts of the room that include the dull tones of wood paneling, wood trim, wood built-ins, and this oversized grey stone fireplace surround without a mantel.
An on-trend and stylish young couple, the family room does not fit their personal style. The first time we met, the mom was visibly anxious just talking about that room. So we talked about introducing a new color palette, which combines a grey-on-grey walls with a sleek dark grey fireplace surround, and painted trim.
