So I have this gorgeous fireplace mantel and the side walls have a nice molding on it too. I'm about to paint the house and I'm not sure what to do with that wall. I definetly want to keep the mantel all white so it pops. But what do I do with the side walls? I feel if I do the moldings white too it'll take away from the fireplace. I'm doing the room a pale yellow color, so what would you do with the side walls?
And the sconces on the mantel are gold, but I feel like they're dated. So I want to paint them also, because I like the style. What color would you do?
