Last week, we saw how well stripes played in with the half-home entertainment half-kitchen design at Innerspec's Swedish home, so why not make it a tad more dramatic by washing out all the colors and leaving it completely monchromatic? It might be overkill on the contemporary for some, but it's a bit refreshing now that everyone's gone color crazy. Here are a few tips to help you incorporate home tech into your design with finesse and ease...
When it comes to matching that design with your television and home theater equipment, we always suggest complementing it with a bezel that utilizes glossy coating (seen in many Samsung, LG, and Sharp AQUOS flat screen television sets). As for home theater equipment, the same technique applies, though if you want to save money and not have to re-buy every component in a specific color, we suggest using IR receiver and hide the actual components within a local shelf nearby.
These sets naturally balance the monochrome palette with a subtle sheen to create a minor focal point in the room, yet at the same time, complement its surroundings.
