What are dimensions of built-in (depth ?) - I really love this room. The yellow flashes with the black and white make all the difference. Need some ideas for my living room fireplace.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Elephant in the Room
Mama and baby add some balance to the asymmetrical room.
Becky Harris added this to Brighten Things Up with Yellow
Not how yellow is used on the shelf styling.
Here the designer has brought in the colors via the upholstered pieces and accessories in the shelves.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 5 Ways to Decorate Around a Flat-Screen TV
1. Add a bit of black. Unfortunately, the big shiny black box that is the flat screen TV just dominates a room. In more traditionally decorated rooms, and when white trim is involved, one solution is to have other black accents and accessories. Here the TV is over a dark stone fireplace; along with the darker brown floors, it helps ground the room. These elements and the black accents in the pillows and side table help to bounce your eye around the room and balance the black hole of the tv. Tip: Even though there's symmetry with the two yellow chairs and the two urns on the mantle, the asymmetry of tall shelving on the left and the lower cabinet on the right help to fill the room with texture and interest. This helps to diminish the TV as a focal point.
Lily Gahagan added this to Decorating Details: Temple Jars
... or adding some heft to the mantelpiece.
Lily Gahagan added this to Design 2011: Layers of Global Style
Another view of the room, with Chinese-style ginger jars lining the mantle.
7. Cover your books. While it would be impractical to cover an entire wall of books, a single shelf can be enhanced by covering the books in beautiful paper. If you want to show what is inside, add file labels to the spines and neatly write the titles.
