The new gray wall paint in a matte finish makes for a really soft look that's also washable — great for families like the Moriconis, who have children. The black paint on the wood molding surrounding the fireplace makes the whole thing pop instead of blending into the wall as it did before. The chairs on either side of the fireplace creates a nice balanced look. "Anytime you repeat shapes in a room, it makes it seem more harmonious," McAloon says. New large black frames above the fireplace create the feeling of art installation, while the new rug underneath the coffee table plays off of the black table legs as well as other black accents.
