Painted brick hearth, too small mantle windows on both sides. Stumped. Want to stay true to Tudor if possible.

Hang a new mantel that extends beyond fireplace wall. I'd also avoid all the clutter and just hang a simple piece of art. Less is more. As for curtains, I would probably just go for one long panel on each side that can be moved across when fireplace is not being used. I don't think curtain so close to blowing spark area is a good idea.

MMM I think this fireplace and your curtains and accessories, all work! I Think if you paint the walls a light cream color, a shade or 2 lighter than the fireplace color would work! The white grabs your attention! Also I think you should refinish the mantle in a dark walnut or chocolate color this would tie this space all together! You have all the bones and a great space! just alittle tweeking!
