This living room didn't require a contractor, but it did require some trade expertise. Besides repainting the space, the heavy faux rock in the doorways needed to be removed. A new couch configuration opened up the view to the fireplace while still allowing room for viewing the tv. Additionally, the fireplace surround got a fresh look with the addition of quartzite, as did the hearth. New furnishings, light fixtures and decor round out the new view of the space.
