You will probably get several comments regarding painting the brick. I love brick and I would never do that. Instead paint the screen black and clean the brick the best you can. Sabrina Soto uses a foaming bathroom cleaner and a nylon scrub brush and this seems to do a great job. You might also want to beef up your mantle. [houzz=

Make the mantle bigger and get rid of the screen all together. Now the style is to have it exposed. During the summer you can light candles in it. I wouldn't paint the brick either. If you do all that and still feel like it needs something, Add a few new decorations

I would paint the woodwork black and spray the insert a heat resistant black as well. You said this is in a kitchen?

Yeah that would look good too. I guess it all about what style your going for. Modern, traditional, electric, etc
