Cleanse your home of wall acne.

It’s time for the glow up.

Cleanse your home of wall acne.

Wait! Where’s the TV?

Technology Meets Interior Design

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?
