Here are additional photos of the end wall of the den. This is a long room. I have the den at the end with the fireplace.I have the sofa angled toward the fireplace. As previoudly
mentioned I can not remove the embedded beam as it is 6/8 inches in depth. The fireplace has gas logs. Paint the entire brick wall? Cream? White? Add mantle? If so would you extend it to the firewood box since it is so close to the fireplace? Even though I am not a rustic kind of gal I do like the dark ceiling beams with the wood floor. Sorry for the crappy photos! Help!!

Therese, what a great idea! Please tell me what is written above each mantle. The only thing
I could read (very small print and my computer would not enlarge it) is to make the top mantle against the header. Thanks!!!
I am at a lost as to what to do with this wall. The rustic style is not my thing. This wall is at the end of the den/dining room. We can't remove the wood insert as it has a depth of 6-8 inches. Any suggestions? Paint it?
