        New York, New York

        Soaring 18 and 19 floors above street level in the heart of Chelsea and offering stunning 360-views of downtown New York City, the seventh annual Hearst Designer Visions show house recently opened at the historic Walker Tower. The annual event showcases the best in interior design, and this year included a technology twist.

        Hearst shelter publication, House Beautiful, partnered with renowned designer, Jamie Drake, FASID, Principal at Drake Design Associates, to create a 1920's art deco-inspired apartment featuring modern technology.

        The residence combines the dramatic scale and glamorous stylings of the decade with lavish materials, exquisite finishes, and modern amenities, including Crestron home automation solutions to control the audio, video, lighting and shades.

        "I'm a great fan of Crestron's products. I happen to have them in my own home. So I know about the joys and pleasure of having one remote or one keypad where you can operate your audio, video, temp controls, your shades and window treatments, all from one location," Drake says.
