the platinum. how about just painting the stone white? like brooke at velvet and linen did with her beach house. she had dark lava stone and painted it white and it looks fabulous!!
Yes, I thought of painting it white*I saw that and loved it) but my husband would have a heart-attack! I got in touch with homebedazzle.com--they do an ebook on fireplace remodels, and they were nice enough to take a look at the pic--they said the white part should just rip off and chop away or cover the stone w/drywall, then add whatever tile I want to create the new fireplace. I love the platinum too.
Yes, I vote for the platinum. Can't wait to see what you decide.xoBrooke
