Pacific Heights Home Living Room

This 6500 s.f. new home on one of the best blocks in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, was designed for the needs of family with two work-from-home professionals. We focused on well-scaled rooms and excellent flow between spaces. We applied customized classical detailing and luxurious materials over a modern design approach of clean lines and state-of-the-art contemporary amenities. Materials include integral color stucco, custom mahogany windows, book-matched Calacatta marble, slate roofing and wrought-iron railings.

Is it ok to have a built in made for one side of the fireplace? - My living room fireplace has an arched doorway to the den on the left side of it, and I was thinking of having built in's made for the right but am unsure if it will look lopsided.

If you can post a picture of your fireplace, showing both the archway beside it and the wall where you are thinking of building the built in, I'm sure you'll get plenty of input.
This isn't exactly your situation, but here's a photo of an asymmetrical fireplace wall with a window on one side and a built in on the other:

The bookcase will balance the door and the area will probably look better. See if you can incorporate the arch in the built-in. Citrus Bloom Case Design/Remodeling, Inc.

I have this sofa. It's Cannes bought at Crate & Barrel in butter. They discontinued it a few years ago. Getting mine reupholstered so I can keep it.

Wall color? Trim color?

The Shabby Nest
Ralph Lauren's Nantucket White is similar to the wall color. Try Valspar's Universal White for a similar trim color.

Sofas - love them. Where can they be purchase? - Hello. Can you share what brand/style are the sofas? Where can they be purchased in the Bay Area? BTW - when I click on the already asked questions there are no answers. Just a place to put a comment. Thanks
