Our sofa sits in the middle of the room and acts as a buffer - it creates the effect of a hallway. Along its backside we have an old white bench that has a shelf where we put our shoes which inevitably spill out onto the floor as well (it does double duty detracting the cat from scratching the back of our precious sofa). Oh and we have a picture rail which we can change up every so often (though that never happens). I am still really wanting a rug of some sort, but we're terrible with making decisions on that front...

We attempted to whitewash our fireplace brick cloud white (like our baseboards surrounding walls were an off white - grey mist or something to that effect - a very pale grey beige) and it looked awful. So then we painted it out the same colour as our walls and it has become such a center piece to the room - we can't imagine it any other way.

I had a screen but got rid of it because it doesn't work at all on my gas stove - the edges of the screen get burned. I read through the comments but didn't see any suggestions for gas stoves. Any ideas???

I love the idea of planting cat grass/flowers/herbs but won't the water decompose the box? Or did you line it?
