With years of home design experience under our belts we can say, without a doubt, that lighting is an essential part of any home design. That is why Digital Interiors is proud to feature Lutron Lighting
systems to anyone interested in adding the perfect amount of lighting integration to their home.
Lutron offers a wide variety of home automation services making it easy for homeowners to control every light in the house from a central location. Set timers so lights turn on and off while you're away, giving your home the appearance that it isn't temporarily vacant. Program the light outside the back door to turn on as you pull in the driveway, providing you a safer path inside. You can even change your lighting options online, without needing to be in your house!
Now all of these options sound great, but such extensive programming must send your energy usage through the roof right? Wrong! Lutron offers dimming options with your state-of-the-art lighting, allowing you to not only use up to 10% less energy but also double the life of your bulbs. And, some of their systems take it a step further, using whole-house control to monitor and reduce energy consumption. So your HOUSE will keep lights on only when they are needed. And you thought your phone was 'smart'.
The possibilities are endless and it's no wonder they were awarded a number of distinguished honors including theÂ 2012 EC&M Product of the Year:Â Energi TriPak
Â in the lighting controls category.

We are so pleased that we've been given the opportunity to host a number of very successful Lunch and Learn sessions within the last few months. We are proud to offer a number of educational and certification credits for architects, builders, designers, and the like who are looking to keep up with current trends of the business. Our very own Vice President George Ide is aÂ Registered Outreach Instructor for the Custom Design and Installation Association (CEDIA). Â An extremely valuable member of the team, George is often the front-runner of our Lunch and Learns, sharing new information about Atlanta home automation
Â and design.
Recently, the Digital Interiors team gave aÂ "Trends Affecting Commercial Spaces" presentation to 18 of Rosser's most eager employees. Attendees from Rosser
, anÂ architectural, engineering and program / construction management firm here in Atlanta, were a wonderful audience, all excited to participate in the session where they soaked some great tips on Atlanta home automation. We were also happy to provide Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits for the American Institute of Architects. If your business is interested in benefitting from one of our Lunch and Learn programs, please contact Chuck Schlick at 770-844-5800.
Digital Interiors was proud to be a participate in the Museum of Design Atlanta's (MODA
) Opening Night Gala for the South's New Wave Exhibit this month.Â MODA is the only
museum in the Southeast that is devoted exclusively to the study and celebration of all elements of design. Through a number of engaging exhibits, MODA takes pride in exposing how design affects our daily lives and regularly displays scenes of architecture, industrial and product design, interiors and furniture, graphics, fashion and more.
Their current exhibit is The South's NEXT WAVE Design Challenge
running through March 2013. Part exhibition, part competition; NEW WAVE pairs interior space and object designers to create imaginative spaces throughout the museum.Â MODA visitors not only browse and enjoy the exhibitions, but are asked to choose their favorite. The winning designers earn both bragging rights and a cash prize. It's definitely worth checking out while you can.
We may be partial to one vignette in particular as we are thrilled to be a part of this outstanding exhibit:
Ben Rose snapped this fantastic photo of the full exhibit by Habachy Designs
. Amy Rader was the talent behind the art and Les Roberts did the finishes and architectural wood for the guitar neck. Â The masterminds at Creative Voltage were behind the lighting, and Digital Interiors took care of the sound and smart system. Â We also want to credit Stampede for the printing and Yerra Rugs for the custom hide rug! Â It was quite the project but we think it turned out to be pretty spectacular, don't you?
If you agree, be sure you vote for us during your next MODA visit. There is some tough competition but we couldn't be more proud of our contribution and think that Habachy Designs definitely deserve the recognition!
It's been a busy few weeks and Vice President George Ide, along with the rest of the Digital Interiors team, has been up to our necks in Lunch & Learns. We wanted to give some shout-outs to the companies that allowed us to come and teach "The Art of Hiding Technology" classes to architects and builders in and around the Atlanta area. It is a CEDIA course that presents CEU (continuing education credits) to attendees.
- AVI Martin Windows welcomed us to present to a group of about 18 architects and designers.
- Friday we had a fantastic Lunch and Learn session in Blue Ridge, Ga with Cindy Trimble Kelly Studios and her staff.Â Blue Ridge, Ga is fast becoming a hot spot retirement community for people from all over the Eastern United States.Â Many Florida retirees are leaving and north! Â Cindy is the only ASID certified interior designer in that area. It was an intimate and well-received class and were so thankful for the opportunity to meet with Cindy and hear team.
- We also presented at Curtain Call on Tuesday.Â Curtain Call is an annual event that provides architects and designers in Atlanta with an opportunity to earn multiple CEU credits in one day.
- HKS, Inc. Architects also featured the class on the 50th floor of their building. It was quite the experience presenting with such an amazing view, to about 20 eager architects.
