I was also thinking about having it covered in ductwork to echo the ductwork above. Does that sound good? We plan on painting the woodwork (it's not vintage and not particularly great quality) and the walls shades of warm white or green-white with either a sharper green accent wall or a forest mural at the end of the room. Our art and furnishings are eclectic, but mostly midcentury Danish and contemporary, lots of wood tones and shades of red, green, orange, and turquoise. I think if we neutralize the space the industrial ductwork becomes more of a feature and the whole space becomes a backdrop for the city views and the furnishings within. Right now it's kind of blah. A forest mural would be a nice reminder of our southern Indiana routes. Any thoughts on the column, and/or a paint scheme for the rest of the room is welcome! Thanks....
