I agree with you the white isn't working with the FP stone. A charcoal gray I think would better complement the screen and mortar of the stone.

Thank all of you for your suggestions! I knew when I did the white it was going to be too stark. My first choice was to do the charcoal grey to match the grout as a couple of you suggested and maybe after accessories on mantle are added it will look better, Thanks again for taking the time to help!

I don't think the mantel suits the fireplace at all maybe thats why you don't like it.

I completely agree with the above posts! It looks like a combo of the mantel design and color; paint it charcoal grey and once you put taller, skinnier items on it, it should look a lot better!

I'd replace it with a piece of stone it will go better with the look of the fireplace
