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? Posted by: Laura Editor: Laura titled her email to us "Wood Hell", so she clearly is looking for some encouragement! Please, bring on the suggestions and ideas....
