Good Questions: Help with Our Victorian?

AT, Looking for your suggestions. We are stumped. My husband, 8-month old son and I live in the bottom floor of an old Victorian home in San Francisco. I would describe our combined style as modern contemporary. We bought the place almost a year ago and are slowly starting to build up our collection of art and furniture (although we still have a lot of stuff that we would like to replace). We are stumped by a few things...

Similar to most Eastlake style Victorians, we have a long narrow hallway, which I am not sure what to do with. Also, our living room and the adjoining room are both long and narrow, which makes the layout challenging.

Some of things the immediate things that I would love to address are the nooks on either side of the fireplace (we were thinking about maybe doing floating white sideboards mounted to the wall on either side. Would that work?).

We also need some suggestions on what sort of mirror to use above the fireplace? Again, we were hoping to go more modern.

Any suggestions are very much appreciated.
