Reface fireplace? Maybe some planks and beams for ceiling?

Interesting thoughts! This wall is classic and personally I would hesitate to update it. The brass -yes- drapes and ceiling fan- yes- Personally LOVE the charecter of the wall.

Great FP wall! If you're looking for a more rustic vibe, then change out the dentil moldings and mantel for rustic style ones and try a new finish on them and the cabinetry. Paint the brass with black heat proof paint and change the fan. if you're not taking your furnishings in the same direction, you may not care for the outcome. The window treatments and furniture need to go in the new direction too.

I think you need more contrasts. Paint the brass and the bookshelves built into the fireplace wall. I would choose the color from the darkest brick on the wall. When I look at the windows I see the dark trim and so I would take down the white swags and add color there too. I like your light area rug against the darker wood floor because they contrast and complement each other. I agree the ceiling fan needs to be changed out.

The room is beautiful. I'd remove the drapery and add a fabulous chandelier and paint the brass FP screen a charcoal. Done.
