This is a unique fireplace to say the least! At first I wanted to remove all of the brick and create a more updated fireplace flush with the wall. My contractor talked me out of that so now the plan is the keep the fireplace intact with a whitewashed coating and some kind of crown moulding around the top.

First, would you add a crown moulding to create a cleaner look of a traditional mantle piece? If yes, do you have any suggestions or photos of a 'curvy' fireplace with an attached mantle?

Second, would you leave the top edge as is without adding the moulding?

Thanks for any advice provided!

It is very different, so no one will be able to tell you that what you do is wrong.

You could always cut a piece of crown molding and hold/set it in place to see if you think you'd like it. Neal is right, that is an unusual/different fireplace, I've never seen one like and I've painted 100's of homes with fireplaces.
