I love this stacked stone fireplace. I think the brown in the stone would look pretty as our corner fireplace in the living room. Wouldn't go all the way to the ceiling, we'd stop at the mantle, but wrap from wall to wall instead of just the front wall. Looks easy to DIY.
love the openess between the two areas, the entertainment center built-ins and fireplace and the beamed vaulted ceiling. Exposed beams with vaulted ceilings. Countertops. Basically everything except I'd put a gas stovetop where the sink is
