Q: We have this rather ugly decorative fireplace in our living room (larger photos below) in the apartment we're about to move into. It's this huge wood affair with a mirror and white tiles and not only take up place but is just incongruously situated and designed. As we are renting, demolition or repainting it is not an option. Do you have any suggestions as to how we can go about harmonizing it with the rest of the room?
