Inspiration in White: Fireplaces

Well the temperature has really dipped the past two weeks and I even saw the first snow today! We have started lighting the fireplace again and that got me thinking about what I can do to decorate around that space for the next few months. There are so many gorgeous styles from Swedish tile fireplaces, to stone, to painted brick to inspire. I am wondering though is it sometimes better to keep the decor around a fireplace simple. A large mirror above it and then....nothing on the mantle...It looks so good like that but I just can't bring myself to leave it empty! What about you? Do you decorate above the mantle for every season or do you keep the decor clean and simple around your fireplace?
