In this 1970s living room, the fireplace, mantel and chimney breast were all painted white.

But where it ended at the top of the wall, a designer decided to get creative, and added more plaster to match the rest of the chimney breast, curving it up onto the ceiling.

Then, the wall gently blossomed into a giant, graphic circle that reached about six feet out from the wall, hovering above the fireplace seating area.

All the other curves between the top of the walls and the ceiling were also smoothed into gentle curves — just enough to eliminate any sharp angle, to help maintain the illusion.

The pale gray paint that covered the rest of the walls and ceiling helped the unusual design of the retro and wonderfully wild op-art fireplace really stand out.
