Here are a few updated pictures. I love the floor, I worked so hard on it this week. It was a completely different color a few days ago...which I changed my mind about ( a buttery yellow) it looked really neat but just wasnt matching the vibe of the house. Eventually I came to the realization that all I had done was recreate my RL homes tile floor color,lol. So I changed it to this brownish grey but enough of the yellow stayed behind to add some flecks of color.
This fireplace I just made up with things I had on hand, its hard to see it because of the angles of the walls, so it wont ever b a focal point,I wanted to keep it low key. One nice thing about it is, its several inches deep so eventually Ill add some cooking pots and stuff. AND I stuffed it full of cinnamon and cloves (above the line of vision) which smell wonderful
