Imagine having all the televisions throughout the house connected to the home computers — Mac and PC — so you can check your e-mail at any time. Or being able to program satellite radio in every room of the house.
That technology was the No. 1 priority for homeowner Shawn Khorrami when he worked with his sister, designer Firoozeh Khorrami, on a complete interior and exterior redesign of his La Cañada Flintridge home. The result can be seen Sunday on the 24th annual Pasadena Home & Kitchen Tour presented by the American Society of Interior Designers, Pasadena Chapter.
Firoozeh Khorrami, owner of Design Schematic,
had to coordinate the technology work schedule with the redesign of the other rooms of the house, including a wall unit that was pulled out and replaced with a bar with windows that showcased a Tequila bottle collection.
A highlight of the home is the view of the backyard from the windows off the kitchen and family room. The patio area takes guests down a path past oak trees on either side of the property. River rock is placed around the base of each tree. Beyond the trees is the pool and spa.
