what i love here, is the wood pit next to the fireplace. i have an old bookshelf directly next to my fireplace that i would love to relocate to the living room. this is a great idea to replace the bookshelf.
I like the way they did this harth and the color painted behind the stove. I also like the wood beams framing the stove in. Maybe have similar framing and the make a gate around the stove out of the same wood.
