The wood panelling really brought down the mood of this room, but I do love the look of panelling on ceilings, so we kept that and painted it out white. With all of the wood, the stone fireplace really got lost in the room and with the new white walls the fireplace pops out. The panelling on the walls was removed and replaced with dry wall.
The room was so large that we were able to create two separate seating areas from what was one seating area. The seating area near the fireplace is made up of 4 IKEA Ektorp seats and a coffee table from Z Gallerie. The other seating area near the TV included a sofa from Room and Board with the electronic components hidden in a trunk from Restoration Hardware.
