Love it! Once you get the bookshelves filled, things will warm up even more. Meant to tell you Lowe's had 25% off on their wire shelving. If I were to do mine over again, I would go with Lowe's instead of Home Depot. But they both carry some nice options for shelving systems.

Much nicer!!! I love a fire place with a mantle and that marble is yummy creamy :)

Amy said...

Wow, you are getting things done quickly! You must have had people lined up in advance. Are you still in your old house or living there during the work?

Kim said...

Oh my goodness but this fireplace is wonderful! No more stark modern, not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just that this appears to suit your home decorating lifestyle very nicely. A big difference. I like it.

Wow, what a change. The last photo looks warmer than the first photo. Sometimes I am amazed at what a little change can bring. The mantel on the fireplace is a really nice change.

What a gorgeous mantle. And that marble... !!! What's neat is how the upgrade to the fireplace really makes the built-ins look so much more impressive. Great job!
