According to one of my favorite websites, Apartment Therapy, “Showhouses are a bizarre animal — and the third Showtime House is no exception. Pulling inspiration from 7 Showtime original series, the designers mix high-concept and high-design into themed rooms for the public to tour. The Showtime house is especially interesting for its inclusion of several high-tech and emerging technologies — from computerized fabrication of furniture to design-your-own wallpaper.”
Here are a few images from the SHO House to whet your appetite. There are many more photos to see but I found these particularly intriguing. Check out all that’s going on in this lively room designed by Zatista’s very own September Guest Curator, Jason Oliver Nixon:
I’d like to take a look at this back lit art in person. I wonder if it’s digital?
A bizarre tableau of unexpected elements: flat screen TV and living plant wall framed to look like a painting, all guarded by a giant bunny and glowing egg floor lamps…!
Speaking of bizarre, I love this trippy photo of a room with a mirrored floor. Cool reflection effect!
Here’s a detail of the room that makes it a bit easier to see. I love the floating letters.
Ceiling art is a good thing. The white relief work on the back wall provides great contrast to the colors and circle shapes up above.
This is a fun effect for artwork; tile an image among a wall of frames to make a bold statement.
I’ve never seen the show Nurse Jackie before, but this image makes me want to start watching!
