Sorry but I don't like the fireplace, as robyneroeder says, it dominates the room. Everything else is in a beautiful soft colour palette then all of a sudden this darkness appears. (I actually gasped when I realised what I was looking at) Maybe the owners can place a picture above the fireplace or a massive silver edged mirror to minimise the dark space.

Too dark and dominating for the room, the rest is so peaceful and relaxing.

A brilliant transformation of what appears to have been a somewhat “safe beige” room - I’m sure that the contrast of depth and lightness is a welcome change for the lucky owners of this space. Contrary to some of the other comments, I think the stonework was a great choice, and needed to be as strong a feature as it is, otherwise the dark wood of the piano would have drawn attention to it instead, rather than letting the fireplace be the hero piece of such a friendly, welcoming room. Well done!
