Due to a renovation, this became a nonworking fireplace. The interior section of the fireplace had a painted black plaster and tin metal plate covering the hole for the wood stove pipe.

Design Solution: Interiors by Monique’s creative, decorative painter solved this problem by painting the interior to match the marble mantle, therefore making it more attractive and unified. The floor grill in front of the fireplace which had been painted black was faux painted to match the aged fir wood floor, enhancing the overall look of the living room.
