As part of the ongoing eLocal blog off series, this round featured a question about the influx of technology in home design--the convenience, the cost, the new uses and the need to sometimes get away from it. I was recognized with the most insightful comment for this round. Click on the link above to read what i had to say.
I'm still thinking about the peacocks from my visit a few weeks ago to Grounds for Sculpture. Perhaps it's because a peahen just fled the Bronx Zoo to go enjoy springtime in NYC. More likely, I can't get the sight of that stunning plummage out of my head. You've got to love a creature that knows just how fabulous it is and isn't afraid to show it. And I really love when it provides some design inspiration.

And, for more upscale buildings, basic staging is not enough to set an apartment enough from the competition.
