What to do with a fireplace?!

We are finally in our new place and loving it! Also, as a huge perk we have a fireplace! It is somewhat intimidating because it is such a focal point.  There are many ways to make it truly shine. I love the idea of surrounding it by candles or having a statement art piece at the center. The furniture that circles the fireplace is also important; I want it to be comfortable and inviting. To bring in color–I think pillows and small accessories (like figurines, mirrors, or frames) or a bar cart can help. I even am toying with the idea of painting the area around the fireplace.

Here is one scenario I created–I’m loving the black and gold combo with pops of teal. Trying to stay with our new mid-century eclectic look.
