There are three types of people in this world. Those who don't mind having their TV hung above their fireplace, those who downright hate it, and those who prefer to hide it more than anything else. Then again, there are times when it's just so picture perfect we can't help but admire...
From The Contemporist:
"[The] Staffan Tollgard Design Group have created a contemporary interior for a house in the London neighborhood of Notting Hill. [The] solution was a whole-scale refurbishment that married their modern design ideals with the existing architecture to create an elegant and exciting home/work/entertain environment."
Pulling off an elegant, yet functional design (in the spirit of Unplggd-kind-of-way) isn't easy. It's always refreshing to see an entire scope of a project executed it so well. We find the best takeaway point to be the fact that you're not seeing a boutique hotel room and more of a personal and private spaces situated in luxury.
So whether or not you're throwing a TV atop a fireplace or installing solar panels, always keep the essence of the home in the context of "you," mix in a little bit of your inner design spirit, and there is really no wrong answer to the way you approach the implementation of technology and design in your home.
