What colour hearth and fire surround do you have?

After years of having no fire in our living room, I want to get one asap.

We have oak floors and cream walls. I really like stone fire surrounds, so that will be pale too. Will a black granite hearth and back panel dominate the space too much, and will I be forever dusting it? Does a beige coloured granite look old fashioned?

It's a 1930's house so I'm thinking nothing too modern incase it looks out of place. Any ideas? Don't want to regret my decision!

Thanks

We have a woodburner in a 70s house, so quite different from what you describe, but I love our hearth which is terracotta tiles - I think they look classic without being oldfashioned, and are a nice 'cosy' sort of colour.

We have a Bath stone fireplace & hearth. It's supposed to be washed but I don't bother. it's very pretty.
