Hi jag -- I was looking at your photo album, and I had an idea about your fireplace. The work you've done so far looks amazing -- the shelving units look great, and the white is really crisp :)

Not to encourage you to do more painting, but have you considered painting out the brick front of your fireplace either black or the same colour as your walls?? I did a couple of quick mock-ups in Paint with both colours.

The black makes it kind of dark, especially with the dark firebox, but I think it would look better in real life:
