How to design and use the corner area above the fireplace?

My husband and I recently move into an apartment which we love only because of its location. The apartment itself has some great conveniences, but is very plain and has some major design challenges. We have this fireplace which we never use. The mantel area above the fireplace is going to have my TV set, but our television is too large to fit above there. But I don’t want this space on the fireplace to deprive the beauty of my living room. So I want help from you guys out there. How do I design and use the corner area above the fireplace? I would really appreciate your views. Thanks.
