I like the painting idea. I don't like how the mirror comes all the way down to the mantel. With so much space I would make sure there was some space between the mantel and whatever you choose.

Quoting 4noodles4me:

A much smaller, square one or maybe just a large painting




Quoting TheMrs407:

I agree with you. I hate brown though. I think I would do some sort of blue or green. I love mirrors above fire places, but this one is a bit much or the wrong shape. What were you thinking of replacing the mirrior with?

Oh he wouldnt do it, it takes a week of me nagging for him to get the latter in for me to decorate, he has no patients with decorating or painting lol. Id have to hire it out


Quoting tennisgal:

I think he doesn't want to paint that gigantic room again ;)

i like the color, but i prefer darker colors and in that bright room a darker color would work great. i don't *love* the mirror over the fireplace, but i also don't have suggestions for something to replace it with.

I love it all. Maybe not the red chair with it though... if you paint, I'd leave the mirror. It looks good with the other trim.

It is very nice, but it sounds like you need a change.  I know I am like that, I like to change paint colors after every few years to keep things fresh and for keeping me from getting bored and not happy with my home.

As far as the mirror, Iike it, and in a room that size, I think it is necessary, but I do think it could use a little something!  I did see this once where the people frosted it with a really cool design they made themselves and, at first I thought that would be soooo tacky, BUT, it actually worked out really well....the frosted design gave enough interest to the eye and added decoration to the room, like a painting, but it still reflected a lot of light in the room so adding the design didn't darken like I thought it would and they kept the design simple like swirly scrolls and stuff like that so it wasn't an overpowering design like a big flamingo or something like that.  To take the mirror down, would compromise a lot in the room, I think....

This is a beautiful room, darling!!  Have fun making it marvelous!!  Oh, and take pics, we wanna see the final masterpiece!!
