A River (rock) Runs Through It...

Q: Help! We have a river rock fireplace that is original to our recently purchased 106 year old house. People who see it either love it or hate it. Removing it is cost prohibitive so it's here to stay. We've just renovated the entire house and are nearing the finish line but we're still stumped by the tile in front the fireplace. We're not sure what to replace it with…

In this room, we've added a 4'x6' skylight, refinished the floors and painted the walls Benjamin Moore "Silver Lake" (in honor of our neighborhood). We're keeping the wallpaper but want to change the tile in front of the fireplace but can't find anything that feels right. We've looked at basalt, slate and another italian tile in a dark gray/rust color but none of them feel right. We need to get this done this weekend so time is of the essence. Any help Apartment Therapy readers can offer would be greatly appreciated!
