What to do with the fireplace?

17 March, 2019
Hi. We have bought a new house. It’s a 15 year old townhouse and I’m struggling after a life time of living in period properties . The house is more modern in design. I don’t like the wooden fire surround or fire place but don’t know what to do. My hubby thinks we should get rid altogether but I like the idea of a fireplace. I don’t tend to like very modern fireplaces. I thought about painting the surround the same as the walls, and maybe putting in a gas wood burner. But I’m not sure it will work in a house which is pulling me toward a more modern interior design. We have chosen West Elm grey velvet sofas, a retro blush accent chair, and marble and mango wood furniture, with some brass/gold accents. Our budget is limited also. Photos show before we bought the house to now. Help and advice gratefully accepted.
