Off center fireplace for vaulted ceiling (keeping ceiling joist)?

My house has 8 feet flat ceiling. I'm interested in making it vaulted ceiling. If I only open attic space for the living room, it will look like below (the fireplace is not in the center). Will this look weird? Sadly left hand side under the highest part of roof will be walkway....

(Because of roof shape, if I open attrit for kitchen and dinning room as well, the ridge will imply where the dinning room ends and that will make dinning room very small.)

And if I open the attic space only for 1 room, removing ceiling joist becomes not so cost effective?
