This fireplace adds an interesting design feature to this loft. This space feels cold and uninviting so I would add warmer more cozy colors that work to incorporate the design of the fireplace. The floor tones add warmth and adding a bit more interest in the color tones would pull it all together for the minimalist type person. The space is too stark and so the white reflects the light back out of the room, a bit depressing. Having a grand heavy coffee table who ground the room and give added appeal, colorful pillows would help as well. The right white wall color would change the whole feel in the room. All whites are different. It took me years to come up with 4 user friendly white tones that my clients love. The draw in natural sunlight, warm up a space and feel opulent and cheery. It is all about the right white. I had to create my own whites, most of the fan decks do not offer user friendly white tones.
