We like how the shelves are connected to the mantle. I think we would like a lighter colored wall with darker wood shelving. The hidden TV is nice but I think we prefer a single sliding panel. Large brick chimney feels too imposing.
Hiding wires for mounted tv without running through walls. We don't have a mantle but we are planning to mount the tv and I LOVE the idea of "moulding" on the wall to frame it off, this would look amazing.tie in with DIY entertainment center
Great idea for hiding the TV could work in any decor Fireplace or not! A sliding wall above the fireplace (a ventless model from Hearth Cabinet) conceals the television. Hide the TV in a variation on this theme?
