The latest buzz in home theater decorating is all about “techorating” and there’s one person in particular that knows a lot about it – lifestyle design and technology expert Janna Robinson. We had the opportunity to ask Janna a couple of questions and find out what the hype is all about, along with getting a couple of trade secrets along the way!
OmniMount: What is techorating, anyways?
Robinson: Techorating, a term LG coined as part of their recent competition “The Sport of Techorating,” is the blending of technology with decorating to create unique and stylish environments. It’s bringing technology into a room in a way that’s functional and fashionable. I also look at it as the softer side of tech, incorporating both into the home to create the ideal environment. Rather than decorating around your electronics, you use the pieces to enhance the overall look.
OmniMount: Is techorating for the man or the woman?
Robinson: It’s gender-neutral! That’s the best part. Often times I hear from women that feel like they’re living in a man cave, but it’s also becoming more common for men to reach the same conclusion for themselves. These days nobody wants his or her tech standing out like a sore thumb.
