Fireplace Help!

Y'all, I need some fireplace help.  What to do, what to do?

Here is the current look...

A few months ago, after getting dark wood floors, I painted my living room walls to lighten up the space.  At the time, my fireplace was a rustic brown.  After a few months of thinking about it, I went ahead and painted the mantel white and left the tile brown.  

Here is my fireplace through the years:

Top right: the fireplace when we moved in--light wood, light tile.  Top left:  I popped off the ornate, scrolly piece, painted the wood, and stained wood and tile.  Bottom right: darkened the stain on wood and tile.  Bottom left:  currently

**Also, I'm not married to that dark wood piece hanging above the fireplace.  I like that piece, but it can hang somewhere else.  I've had it several places.

Here are some of the ideas I've found...

white with black tile
all black

all white

all white

I guess I'm torn about what to do with my red brick hearth, the tile, and the surrounding wood.  Do I paint the brick, paint the tile, paint the whole shebang???  Y'all help me!
