    Would have to really see it to comment, but if you just can't make up your mind, wrap the mantle with white paper of some kind - maybe tissue paper since that would be cheap, and see if you like it better brown or white.

    I vote for wood 9 times out of 10. Rustic elements mixed with a clean white and a dash of color is something that works for me.

    hard w/I seeing photo. I would tend to leave the mantel wood though you might use online painting site to try different effects of a similar photo

    I'm with KMS on this. But it would be nice to see a photo.
