i'm redoing my house, a spec house 25 yeards old.current mantel is painged light cream, the color of the the house paint. Now the contractor has painted interior of house martha stewart putnam ivy, andplanning to dress up the mantel a bit...wanted to put in green marble around the hearth and up the sides. But new mantel color is white....and somehow the green marble looks wrong/cheap against the white...any ideas of how i might have the green marble, erhaps with another color? i'm looking at restore for an old mantle, may not be the exact size....don't want to spend a fortune on a new mantel, but open to improving from the present plan...thanks VERY much!!!!!!!
