Here's what I'd suggest...The fireplace is beautiful as is your style throughout the rest of the pics. What doesn't work with the fireplace is that you have this little "triangle" piece in white above the mantel against the dark red. This chops the space visually, which is jarring. You need to paint the main/center wall the same color as the triangle piece (I can't tell if if its marble or what material) but match it as closely as possible - and no faux painting if it is marble! The sides that are recessed should be built-in bookcases...I'd recommend a medium toned wood and perhaps painting or wallpapering the back of them if you want to add color/texture. The base of the book shelves (if you have the depth) should be closed storage to hide TV components or wood storage if your fp is wood burning. Let your eye for color shine on styling the shelves with books and objects.
