Q: I'm trying to figure out if we should paint our giant brick fireplace or not...the house is a 1950s California ranch and so has paneling, wood floors AND a brick fireplace, all of which read orange/red. I've tried to cool the space down with furniture, but all I see is orange...all the time. I'd like to paint it gray. What do you think? (large pic below the jump)
