Suggestions For Sprucing Up Mantel?

Q: Our living room mantel needs a bit of design inspiration, and we're hoping Apartment Therapy can help! Our mantel is the focal point of our living room, but we haven't had much success bringing our style to the space. I definitely want to get rid of the mirror, which is too big and too boring. Everything else I like (but am not unwilling to part with — the exception being the small boy on the right.) The room is rather dark and on the small side so we're thinking another mirror would be good to open and brighten things. (Jump below for a closer look.)
