Is my fireplace slate? Is it paintable? advice please!

Would love some suggestions on what I can do to make this fireplace look better. I’ve been under the impression that it’s made from sandstone but slate has been popping up a lot in all my research! There’s an area that has red, blue and other color stone. I despise those colors and would really love to replace those pieces if possible. If I’m not able to I’m very tempted to whitewash everything (beige, light gray tones.) Im scared I’ll end up regretting it! As a side note- I’ll be painting the walls a creamy white color and changing out the sofa pillows, artwork and coffee table. Would love any tips or advice!
