Tv components - Hi Rebecca, do you remember where your clients store their tv components (DVD, satellite box...)? We have a flat panel raised above the FP, with an asymmetrical wall space on either side which is causing a design dilemma. We need a spot to put our tv components so a custom entertainment would be fabulous but I can't figure out how to design it so it looks symmetrical... I'll add a pic to help ... Thanks for taking the time to respond if you can!

Hi @acharland, Its Rebecca Robeson, the designer of the project you left your question on. I apologize for the late response. I get hundreds of questions here on HOUZZ and most of them take a bunch of time to pull up the info. I'm just now getting the chance to respond. I have answered over 400 questions in the past 6 hours. Your question was posted so long ago, I realize it might be to late to be of any help. I completely apologize. If however you are still interested in the answer to your question, please message me again. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner. Sincerely, Rebecca Robeson

Hi Rebecca, thanks for taking the time to get back to me. I understand from all the videos I watch that you are very busy, so thank you in advance for the tips and ideas you may offer in this forum. Even with everything I have learned from your videos, I cannot for the life of me figure a way to create symmetry with the current layout/architecture. I'm thinking of a nice chest on the left of the tv to hold the components with some decorative accents above and for the right hand side, a reading chair with a nice floor lamp that stands tall then arches back down (like an inverted 'J'). I would love a bookcase like you have in your living room but it just wont work here with the angled wall off the right of the living room. Here's a pic, I dare not remove my Christmas decorations as my house looks so barren with out them.

All The walls are the same color. I agree, it looks much greener than you would think. Thats why paint color are so important and not always that easy to select ;-) Rebecca

I'm sorry, I do not. We buy directly so my best suggestion would be to contact a local designer and ask for assistance.

How high should the TV be? - So how high is too high for the TV to be? I want to put out TV on top of the fireplace, but it just feels like we would be sitting in the front row of a movie theatre. I've seen this in many, many designs, but it just looks uncomfortable...does this really work?

It depends on the placement of your furniture. If you have to look to the side and up, then it is a problem (such as in your photo). Might be better to give us placement of your furnishings and distance from TV for us to ascertain the optimum height. Pictures always make the difference in being able to give some assistance and recommendations.

I know what you mean, If a fireplace is too high, it doesn't work. In this case, I purposely created a lower than usual mantle. By the photo I think you can see, the viewers are not ON TOP of the TV :-)

Hi Angela, The set of 6 paintings are from Art N Frame Source and the center painting of the trees is a custom piece painted by my design assistant Greyson Darrow. We often include at least one custom painting in every home we design. I'm glad you like it. You can see more of our work by going to YouTube where Robeson Design has the most popular design channel in the world with over 120 videos on every topic you can think of as it relates to Interior Design. Thanks. RR

In process of deciding on how to finsih out the fp wall and would like to incorporate a mantle. This fp does not overpower the wall/room.
