Victorian fireplace - ideas on what to do with it

Hi there


Looking for advice and ideas on what to do with this fireplace. Its quite loud and garish in our cosy front room. We're in a bay fronted Victorian 3 bed terrace and this is int he front room. I've been told this in the ordinal insert and surround, but not the original hearth. We will use it occasionally as a solid fuel fire (1/2 times a month in the winter)


Its quite loud looking, big and bulky and the different patterns and tones jar with each other.


Not looking to make this look more modern, just want it to be a much nicer looking version of itself


Any ideas? not opposed to removed and replacing some elements (e.g. the surround or the hearth). The option is to remove the whole thing and replace with an arched insert and a limestone surround, but not sure it feels right to remove the whole thing


Would love to get some advice and ideas!


Thanks
