How is Your Zoom Background?

There was an article on NPR that discussed a Twitter account that has been rating celebrity and politician room backgrounds on Zoom and other videoconferencing services.  So what does it take to be highly rated? See if you can spot some common themes in these highly rated rooms below (and the one above) which scored at least 7 out of 10 points. Did you spot some common themes?

The back entry does not usually include sliding doors or french doors from a bedroom, living room, dining room, or kitchen; however, it may typically be included within a laun

Space Planning Principles to Live By

But first, it starts with an in-depth analysis of how the space is to be used, taking into account all who live in the home and even some visitors to the home. Rooms and spaces within rooms are zoned to account for different activities that take place in a space. For example, a large open-concept great room may have a zone for living (watching TV, reading a book, holding a casual conversation, etc) and a zone for dining (both day to day eating as well as dinner parties). Circulation zones that show how people will move through the space are defined in the space planning process; you don't want furniture to get in the way of people's expected movements. The space plan is finished by adding the furniture, decor, accessory, and artwork details. Some times, there are conflicts that need to be resolved during the space planning process.
