shelves in painted alcoves
Quick / cheap alcove shelving using standard size shelves. Would also allow for different sizes of pictures etc. | Housetohome.co.uk
This reminds me of my first flat. Classic Victorian house interior with an original fireplace, books in the alcove. However I wasn't stylish enough to have those wonderfully chic grey walls with high white accents. :)
Lounge ideas for fireplace wall
Scandinavian interior. Simple, natural shades. Come at peace!
Wood wall - would not have thought of this. I constantly bring wood in for my wood stove. This is creative...not the wood wall but the fireplace behind.
Looking for a DIY home makeover project that packs a huge punch? Turn a boring and empty alcove into a cozy reading nook with a wood plank wall.

I'm going to build alcove shelving and cupboards into either side of the chimney breast in the sitting room. Hopefully behind the boxing in there will be an original ireplace too!
