Beautiful or in need of remodeling? Help! I need your feedback.

I am preparing to install a Quadrafire Mt. Vernon pellet stove here in our living room. I also would like to put a flatscreen television above the mantle. I am replacing the existing tile around the fireplace. Should I stick with tile or go to stone? Would you keep the existing wood above the mantle or drywall and paint it? Any and all suggestions are welcome! Thank you!

I think I would drywall and paint it, but that's just me. The fireplace seems a bit overwhelmed by all that wood in my opinion, and a bit dated looking. I think it will feel like a totally different room if you get rid of it. Best of luck whatever you decide to do.

I think it's interesting, but due for some updates. I would look at changing out the cabinet hardware and redoing the display area. I like the design elements of the panels and the molding, but don't feel that it is sufficiently coordinated with the open shelving area. Consistent width in the trim around the windows should be repeated throughout the area to attempt to make the three major sections - upper portion, display area and fireplace - appear as a single design focus
