I can't post a photo yet as the house isn't officially closed.
The living room and dining room share the same wall and the fireplace is on this wall but off to one side of the living room, meaning the fireplace is not centered on the living room. The fireplace is made of different shades of taupe brick that goes midway up the wall.
I was going to put the TV beside the fireplace to balance things out.
So do I paint the wall a shade of taupe from the brick to hide the fireplace or do I just paint the main living room wall colour? Luckily taupe works with my living room colours but I am second guessing myself because if I paint the wall taupe then the TV becomes the focal point.
