My New Must Have: A Fireplace

Yep, as if the wainscoting wasn't enough of me to ask, I have now fallen head over heels with the idea of having a fireplace in my new living room. I figure if I can show Josh a picture of wainscoting and he can build it, I can show him this picture and no problemo, right?

One tiny glitch may be that we have to close in a doorway, put up dry wall, and build the actual built ins. Minor stuff. 

As much as I would like to do that gray fireplace because I LOVE it in that picture, I think that might be a bit much for my space. Not to mention, this will be an electric insert because we have an upstairs and there is no chimney. Sounds much too complicated. I'm going for the look not the heat. It's Louisiana, after all.

Anyone with me on this vision?? I know it would be super helpful to have an actual picture of the wall I'm talking about, but let me paint the picture of whats happening on that pink wallpapered wall right now: a rug is leaned up against it, a leather chair is blocking the doorway, a tv is on the floor (along with wires and cable box), mail from the mail slot, and other random objects. So for now, visualize pretty :)
