Help turn this blah fireplace into a show stopper!

last year

I’m renovating a home I’ve recently purchased. I’m going for styling that is the more modern side of transitional and would love for this fireplace in my hearth room (just off the kitchen and a key living / entertaining space) to really be a decor “moment”. But, I don’t have an endless budget. 🫤 And repainting it seems BORING!!!!! I don’t want to land on that as a last resort.

The rest of the room is being COMPLETELY redone - new hardwood flooring, baseboards, lighting, paint, window treatments, etc…) But, I’m stuck on what to do with this blah fireplace. I can’t afford the marble / porcelain surround I want. So, I’m desperate for suggestions. If it helps, my color palette is neutrals with a touch or warmth anchored by deep navy, and bits of browns and caramels.
