Fireplace Needs More Focus

Our new house has a great room for dining & formal living, but the gorgeous A. Hays Town fireplace is ignored. Here was how the previous owners laid it out - it's currently empty. Dimensions are 35' x 20' Thanks!

Paint would be an economical option to provide some focus and drawing attention to the fireplace.

Paint there is a great idea, thanks. Am also wondering if there is a way to keep the dining area where it is, but break up the seating in the rest of the room. My table is as wide as theirs. Maybe a narrower table?

Also wondering if I should skip the china cabinet (I have a console instead) & either orient my rectangular table 90 degrees to this or sell it and use a round table. Gak! Confused!
