I like the upper mantel idea. The dark floor, dark wooden coffee table top and dark stone in the fireplace pull this room together. White walls, white slanted beam ceiling and doors going to the outside make this a great looking room.
House of Turquoise: Tillman Long Interiors - This coffee table sparked an idea! I could use large Corbels, standing with base up, as legs for an interesting reclaimed piece of wood to make a coffee table.
