Just like missing a call, missing a visit can change the outcome of your day. We just discovered iDoorCam WiFi, a sleek gizmo that allows users to see and speak to the person who’s ringing their front doorbell, no matter where they are located. By installing an application on iOS and Android devices, home owners can conveniently keep track of their visitors. If you recall, we also featured a similar doorbell on our site a while back.
According to the official project description, when a person rings the doorbell, iDoorCam sends an alert, allowing you to see, hear and speak to the person at your door from your mobile devices. A two-way audio system means visitors can also hear you talking. You can add multiple users to each device, so that everyone receives the call and can answer it. Check out the video above to see extended information on how the product works!
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in. The soaring ceilings of this bright and airy Texas home are further exaggerated by its recessed seating area. The raw look of the wooden ceilings and concrete floors are softened by strategically placed pops of color and plush pillows.
