How to Decorate "Wood Hell" ?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: My boyfriend scored a great rental on the beaches of Santa Cruz for dirt cheap. The living room is huge and has a fireplace, but ... well ... there's this -- hardwood floors, massive brick fireplace, and knotty pine walls. Where do I even start? Should I put a mirror on top of the fireplace? Sheer curtains on the windows? I was thinking of turning those little seats on either side of the fireplace into cute reading nooks, but where would I put a lamp?
