It is a bit different to the chunky art deco style fireplaces in foul swirly
patterns and colours, which would definitely get ripped out.
The house although built in the late 1930s was built to an earlier pattern using
lime mortar, fireplaces in upstairs bedrooms, etc. So perhaps the fireplace is
slightly earlier in style, although I cannot find anything similar in google
The other notable feature is the mantle is very low.
The bit I don't like is the swirly beige tiles, not the actual surround. I
wonder if you could replace with something a bit more contrasty? You'd then
keep the painted tiles, but would change the look of the thing.
