Sometimes it's the things we don't see that have the biggest impact — an alarm system in the corner, a control panel, in-wall docking stations, whole-home audio systems and speakers, wireless networks. These may be nearly invisible to the naked eye but pose just as many purchasing and design dilemmas as the technology we see.What home tech do you rely on most?

Navy blue upholstery is making an appearance in furniture items appropriate for any room in your home. Dress it up in a tufted velvet upholstered piece. There is nothing more luxurious and rich to sit on. I just love this "Paradise Blue" Sofa from Horchow. Tips on caring for velvet upholstery- If the fabric begins to look matte, simply brush it in the opposite direction. If liquid spills on it, the best thing to do is take a clean absorbent cloth or paper towel and soak up the excess liquid. Don't rub the spill because this would push the liquid deeper into the fibers. Instead, leave the cloth in place until most or all of the liquid has been absorbed then let it air-dry. Clean as large an area as possible so you don't leave rings.
