Smarter Homes, Smarter Outlets

With each passing year, advances in technology create an added convenience in most aspects of our lives. Growing in popularity are smarter homes, which are incorporating the U-socket wall plug. The smaller systems, which have built-in USB ports, allow for easier upgrades and replacements.

The sockets remove the clutter of AC adaptors that jut out from walls and take up space, allowing for a cleaner and crisper look. Even better, the sockets have a smart sensor that allows the device to stop charging when the device is fully charged, which saves the life of your phone, as well as cutting down on energy used in your home.
Does the U-socket wall plug intrigue and motivate you to replace your outdated sockets and bring your home up-to-date with technology advancements?

Leather Walls Add Novelty and Elegance

When you look at the walls in your home, are there any walls that need revamping or any rooms that just need a little extra pizazz? Recycled leathers are one of the hottest trends, as they can be dyed any color, imprinted with unique designs, and treated to be stain resistant.

Leather walls are ideal on feature walls, surrounding a fireplace, or in a media room, if you are looking to block out sound. Leather tiles have a long life, and can add either a warm and cozy feeling to your space, or it can give your interior a sleek quality.

Using the Jewel-Toned Teal in Your Home

Vibrancy of Teal
Blue gives off a calm and spiritual feel, while green gives a natural and fresh atmosphere. When blue and green combine to create a teal color, a rich, vibrant and classy color is created. Teal is jewel-toned and reminiscent of the sea, which allows this calming color to aid in alleviating stress.
Varying Amounts
Teal is such a great choice for your living room, kitchen or bedroom, as it pairs beautifully with wood tones, metal accents and natural colors. Teal is great as an accent in your room, which can be established with furnishings, throw pillows, or blankets, or it can be used on your walls. By painting all of the walls, trim, and even cabinets or tables teal, you can achieve the luxurious feeling of a jewel box, and add more character to your space.
If you brought teal into your room, would you take the leap and go for the jeweled effect or keep it subtle?
