should I paint this fireplace?

I recently just purchased a beach house. I am not sure about the fireplace bricks. The kitchen and living room are open to each other. The kitchen will be white cabinets and a lighter colored countertop. The walls are all currently being painted Benjamin Moore white dove.

The fireplace is 80 inches wide and goes from floor to ceiling bricks. Do you think I should paint the fireplace white? Will that give it a more Coastal feel? Was also thinking about a big chunky mantle but not sure what color the mantle should be?

The space on each side of the fireplace is somewhat limited. It is about 26 inches wide on each side. I was thinking I could put the television and place it on top of the mantle. Thoughts on this?

Thanks for any input and help!
