There is nothing more unappealing than walking into your home and being confronted by a menagerie of wall plates, switches and interfaces – all misaligned and of varying colors, shapes and sizes. This “wall acne” is the bane of any designer’s existence, but new innovations in home automation technology have brought sleek, stylish and sophisticated back to your walls.
Technology Meets Interior Design
TAGS: interior design | luxury | pre-wiring
It’s quite the conundrum. Many of us are fixated on home renovation shows. We’re becoming obsessed with shiplap and subway tile, enthralled with the design trends of today. We’re into open floor plans and oversized clocks. We want large dining rooms and dreamy outdoor spaces for entertaining, but when we’re ready to settle in on the comfy couch for our favorite weekly drama, or curl up with the family to stream a movie, we’d like to see a TV! Have you noticed what’s missing in some of the “fixer upper” shows? Technology! Why IS that? Granted, some embrace technology-free zones with no disruptive television, gaming consoles or mobile devices in designated homework or family dinner spaces. That’s great, but many technologies actually keep us safe, comfortable, informed and entertained. Window coverings, LEDs, control devices and lighting design are elegant and convenient. So, why is technology so often overlooked in design?

The music you play is as important as what you play it on and what you play it through. If better ingredients make a better pizza, then the truest, cleanest, highest bit rate content will yield the best sound when “baked” under all the right conditions (connections, components, calibrations). Analog may be the “original”, but accessing vinyl presents a challenge. But the tides are changing.
Why go out to the sports bar, when you could build one in your own home?
