Under the slogan “Shopping Made Simple”, Amazon launches Amazon Dash, a small hi-tech wand that aims to make shopping more convenient. The new product is about the size of a remote control, and it features both a microphone and a bar-code scanner, which allows users to either speak the name of the product they need or scan its bar code. With a simple setup, Dash connects to your Wi-Fi network and from here on registers what you need.
According to the producers, the gizmo helps buyers choose from over 500 000 products, ranging from fresh grocery and local products to electronics. The new device works with AmazonFresh, the company’s delivery service that currently only operates in Southern California, San Francisco and Seattle. If you would like to give Amazon Dash a try, you can sign up to receive a free version. We’ve also uploaded the presentation video below. Have a look and feel free to share your thoughts on this new Wi-Fi shopping system !
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
