Last Friday, Steve the "reclusive failed novelist," wow'ed us with a surprisingly hip and unusual space converted from an old warehouse. Features included a wonderfully implemented home theater system capable of viewing from both his recessed bed and ample lounge area. With a little mix of class, elements of a home theater, and tons of art, it's hard to find anything to not like.
Update: Thanks to nothingfuture for catching the typo. 100 feet is IMAX-sized, no? :)
Wall to wall, you'll find great artwork hung at the same level as the main projection screen. Not only does this create a sense of ample space, but it balances the scale of a room that utilizes a whoopin' 100-inch screen (we're guessing on the dimensions, obviously).
Being able to watch movies and browse the computer from a lofted bed definitely counts as a cherry on top of an already brilliantly designed layout.
Just take a look at those sexy floors. One advantage about keeping everything dark in a home theater space (other than to make the brighter colors "pop" as they do) is the fact that you effectively remove any "hazing" caused by bright floors and walls. In a sense, the ultimate movie watching experience is recreated.
Finally, a closeup of his home theater system. Those speakers looks like an audiophile system - though we're unable to identify the speaker model. Any takers on the equipment seen here?
