This is a real mis-match of materials. Clad the brick with something organic-feeling, like a veneer stone. Change the mantel completely, it's too wide and projects out too far. Lighten up the colors, that dark wood does not go with the wood paneling.

The wood paneling is going to be eliminated soon, I'm gonna re finish wall and paint. Just the brick and design is killing me. I do agree fully on the huge mantel.. Thanx for input

If you can't do a stone or tile veneer over the brick then at least paint it.

Island Stone
Island Stone rustic or vile claddings. Can be put right on top of your brick. Immediately gives a modern appearance.

Why don't you wish to disturb the brick? I would take the top four layers off to get rid of the flair. It's top heavy for the space. Then when you have is squared up you might like the brick. then If not, consider the Island stone look. You could paint the interior brick black or gray.
