I love the fire place, but think that removing the trapezoid is a great idea. I would wallpaper the wall above the fireplace and hang a large mirror there. Love built in shelves on either side, painting them the same color as the dominant color in the wallpaper. Move photos to shelves along with books and plants, keeping the mantle somewhat simple with maybe some brightly colored contrasting vases. TV's are always an issue....like the idea above about a cart if you don't watch frequently, otherwise just leave it on the shelves. I'd also change the curtains to something lighter & airier, or maybe a burlap colored linen? If you need more storage space have reclaimed wood doors put on crawl space above to use that space. Otherwise I'd just leave it as is.
