Q: We recently moved and are not sure what to do with our den. We love the cozy feel of the parquet flooring and paneling, but it is a bit dark and dated looking. We have thought of painting either the fireplace, the fireplace and surrounding wall/bookcases, or even the entire paneling throughout the room, but are unsure what to do. We would love to hear any ideas.
