The left side matches the right side. The fireplace is in the center of the room and bookcases flank either side.

The walls in this room have a subtle grasscloth wall covering rather than a painted finish.

The wiring is behind the wall in this installation and the components are inside one of the lower cabinets along the wall.

The walls are covered in a neutral grasscloth wall covering. The grasscloth is from Schumacher.

How deep are the book shelves? - I am having a built in made right now and the contractor thought that he would make the shelves on either side 8" and the ones over the TV 9". The base unit is 18" on the sides and 20 " in the center. I do not have the fireplace, so my TV will be mounted on the wall over the base cabinet which is standard height. I am not sure they are deep enough. That is why I am asking.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Gather up those logs for fires!
Becky Harris added this to Perfectly Composed Small Rooms
The clear coffee table gives the illusion of more open space in this room.
Check out how these built-ins follow the horizontal lines provided by the fireplace and mantle, and the great cabinets underneath for storing games. The cube space for storing firewood is the icing on the cake.
Kit Pollard added this to 5 Design Lessons from Restaurants
Achieving this is all about paying attention to detail. Individual pieces should be comfortable, but also very pretty, and carefully arranged to minimize sloppiness.
A neutral palette is easy on the eyes, inspiring rest and relaxation.
Kelly Sanchez added this to Winter Whites: Embracing Nature's Palette
The neutral tones and contemporary storage solutions in this sitting room on New York’s Upper East Side put the emphasis on luxurious elegance.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to The Right Built-ins for Your Fireplace
What: If you have a wood-burning fireplace, then providing a spot for enough wood to last for several hours, and one for fireplace tools, is a great idea. This room also has a TV, books and display items.How: A simple, deep (probably 18-inch), open-faced niche holds enough wood to keep the fire roaring all night, so that no one has to dash through rain or trudge through snow to get to the wood pile. I don't see fireplace tools sitting on the hearth, so it is also possible that there's a hidden spot for those. Allowing space for the chimney, the niche for the TV is just deep enough for it and a couple of display items. Open shelving handles the books and a few other decorative objects, while closed cabinets below provide hidden storage.Style: Painting all of the built-ins the same cream as the rest of the room instead of brighter white creates a serene and mellow monochromatic palette. A larger TV above a smaller fireplace can look top heavy, but the solution is to make the wood niche the same height as the fireplace and then have the TV niche extend over both the fireplace and wood niche. Visually the fireplace and wood niche appear as one whole piece and together are larger than the TV. Problem solved through good design!
