Old Granite Fireplace - need inspiration and decoration ideas

Granite stone fireplaces are a little outdated however are very costly to rip out & start over :(.

I thought that my existing fireplace could be improved by simply inserting a cassette/inset style stove however sadly the stove expert said it was a no-go as the space is too small and it wouldn't sit flush against the stone (because it's stone!).

Does anyone have any ideas how to improve the look of this fireplace? I am painting the room white so was thinking of also painting the wood mantle and heath border white (or cream) and putting a big mirror on top - but apart from that is there anything that can be done?

Thank you so much and any decoration or accessory suggestions would also be very welcome.
