Some mighty clever ideas for technology integration can be found in Ben and Shari's recent home tour over at Design*Sponge. From a recessed kitchen TV to a home office view to die for, there's a little bit of exuberance and creativity found around every corner.
May we draw your attention to the wondering built-in shelving unit for the home office. While the wooden back panel certain gives off a retro look, it's coupled with a variety of miscellaneous things of meaning to give it a unique personality to what seems to be the focal point of the wall.
To complete the look, of course, is the hidden wires fed through from behind the main desk along the side of the wall. What you get is a feeling of more home office, less wire jungle.
Continuing the trend of built-in goodness, the living room features floor to ceiling shelving with a flush-mounted high definition TV with wiring running behind it, accessible from the top and bottom cabinets. Every inch of space is utilized.
The trend finishes in the kitchen where TVs are indeed present, but with points of control ambiguous and hidden. This is great method of merging modern day technologies in traditional settings without much effort. Plus, it's a good way to keep guests from fighting over who's the "remote control god" during parties.
