We just bought a house with this fireplace. The brick is too red/orange for me. Of course my husband doesn't want to paint it out but he's OK with maybe painting over some of it so it looks like this picture i found. My questions are -- does anyone know how to achieve this look? is it just applying shades of white and grey paint over parts of the brick? and any ideas for the mantle?
(the photo of my house is the one with the white paper latern :-). thanks!
