If the bookcases werre not white I'd say rustic, but... How classic is the rest of your furniture. Are you cowboys or city slickers in your decor style?

A white mantle will tie in nicely with the built-ins. You can add rustic accessories to the mantle for variety and interest!

I would say we are neither.. cowboys or city slickers ? Its deceiving with all the Xmas decor around , its usually not so cluttered . This is a very small room and there are two brown leather club chairs and ottomans . The floor is honey coloured solid oak . The fireplace stone is slate . If we went white , should we attached to the built ins on either side or build a more traditional mantel ? ?

I would suggest a simple, black mantle - stop about 6-8" from the side.

White would tie it all in. Here is a suggestion...first thing that popped out is the boldness of the white shelves and it over powered the beautiful slate fireplace. What if you pulled out a color from the slate...like a blue/gray maybe and paint the shelves that color. It will tied that all in so nicely and that fireplace will stand out more, and then you could do a rustic beam.
