Brick with wood. Exposed brick with surrounding millwork looks timeless and can be a great way to update an older brick fireplace. The untouched brick adds a more textural contrast to a freshly painted mantel and surround. Forgo white or off-white; paint your fireplace surround a bold color and watch your room transform from good to great.

Side by side. This design works magic as both elements stand side by side in perfect harmony. The television and the firebox are similar in size which helps to balance out each other’s weight on the wall. The materials provide contrast while still tying into the rest of the home’s design. If concrete isn’t the right finish for your fireplace surround try a gray-colored tile to create the same effect.

Storage ottomans are virtually upholstered boxes with padded lids. The lids are hinged and open up to provide storage space that can be used in a number of ways. For example an ottoman can be used as a coffee table with a sofa bed and also to store the bedding for when the sofa is needed as a bed. It can be used as a piano stool storing sheet music and other items. They can be used in children's rooms for toys computer or video games and controllers and in your bedroom as a handy seat for dressing while storing bedding spare pillows or your nightclothes. These are just examples - an ottoman can be used to store whatever you need it to.

Tuck away your TV. While a drop-down projector screen is great it doesn’t get much more impressive than an entire drop-down TV. No matter its weight or angle an experienced professional can mount a television wherever you want it. This is another option for those who want to make a seamless transition from dinner party to film night. When the after-dinner conversation reaches a natural lull you can adjourn to the living room and relax with the latest Hollywood hit or cult classic.

Matched in scale. This fireplace and television one on top of the other make for a stunning lesson in scale. The perfectly sized components almost make them look like they're combined. When placing your TV above your fireplace make sure it's low enough to be comfortable to look at. You don't want anyone to crane a neck when trying to relax and watch TV.

Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table too. As a resting place for legs and feet an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms too adding texture rich color and style.
