I am having the same problem..but my situation is a corner brick layout for an old woodburning stove...my fiance has owned this home for twenty yrs and he is trying to be open for change but I know its only limited...the brick is red but has the white ashy stuff it tends to collect and the mantle is an ugly medium color natural pine i guess with a high gloss finish...above the mantle is an ugly slats of wood running up and down from ceiling to mantle and that is a lighter natural yellowish pine...uuhhhg....anyhow...
Loooking at your situation....its much easier...the mantle is unnecessary and unattractive....the wood molding on ceiling has to go....I believe that it depends on your furniture, however...if you have the fireplace and the solid wall its adjacent to the same color....such as a taupe...there is a wide range of taupe...you can choose a biege or grey taupe...taupe is basically grey/biege combo but its either more grey base or biege base....then...it can be light taupe...medium taupe or dark...the wall around the window and the other walls should be lighter....it will make the room appear bigger and the fireplace and other wall will be a slight accent but will not overwhelm the room and will look clean....
