Fireplace Mantel - WWYD?

Our living room is really coming along, especially with the installation of the new fireplace and surrounding tile. One difficulty I'm having, though, is with the mantel.

As you can see, it's enormous - spanning the length of the whole room - and has two windows above it.

For the past couple of years, we've had a number of small decorative things along it, but this method doesn't do the mantel justice.

So, I'm looking for ideas - what would you do? Pictures or links would be doubly helpful!
