I hope you can help on advice on how to deal with this fireplace wall in the living room that integrates into a soffit. This is a new construction home and there won't be crown mouldings.
I was thinking to have the fireplace wall a different color(darker tone) but the problem is the soffit sort of flows into it.
I may add a fireplace mantle but for the moment, do you think it is a good idea to have a different color for the fireplace wall(including the wraparound adjacent wall)?
Perhap to separate the soffit from the fireplace wall by creating a line? Should I leave the vertical wall of the soffit wall to blend into the ceiling or match the main body of the living room walls?
Thanks for your help, I couldn't find an interior design forum site.
