Using Hidden Technology to Improve Home Design
I’ve worked with many interior designers throughout the Seattle, Washington area, and over the years I’ve noticed they all have a common complaint: the audio/video is an eyesore; it’s ugly!

But if I could get one thing across to designers, it’s that it doesn’t have to be that way!
