Can anyone with a 3 sided fireplace give me an idea on how to change the look of this one? The area is too tight for a mantel of any sort.

    I love these types of fireplaces! ...your so lucky to have one! I see that the walls in the background are more neutral. You may want to change the bold colors on this fireplace too!

    Painting the tile could give it an update!

    I would encase all three sides with a stone veneer - it wouldn't stick out too far and it would make it a real focal point from every angle (so you'd have to take off the tile). Also I would paint the little bit of brass with high heat black matte. I think that would update it and you could one piece of art on each side to coordinate with your color scheme. Just my thoughts!

    I think taking off the tile, and use a light wood to the same depth to enclose the fireplace would work. Then I would paint it a nutural colour, then add a picture each side to fill the space. If they are the same height all around it would look great.

    Firstly, I would remove the tropical hummingbird wall art. It is competing for dominance with the hearth, resulting in neither being a winner.

    As brass trim on fireplaces is dated, next I would suggest painting over the brass with heat resistant black paint.

    Lastly, paint over the yellow wall with a paint color that matches the tile. This will integrate the surfaces on the wall, modernizing the corner.
