2010 Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts

Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts, Family Media Room 2010. Interior Design by Designs of the Interior, Westlake Village, CA. Equipment and Installation by Wilshire Home Entertainment, Thousand Oaks, CA.

The elegant Cravens Estate, which is the headquarters of the San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross is the 2010 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Wilshire Home Entertainment is proud to be a part of this project and collaborate with this esteemed organization.

Designed by architect, Lewis Parson Hobart, the Cravens Estate was inspired by the baroque Chateau Vauxle-Vicomte in France, which was also the inspiration for Versailles. It has a wealth of striking features and original architectural details. The spectacular renovations bring it back to its glory days while adding the amenities, technology, and conveniences that enhance modern living.

Wilshire Home Entertainment designed and installed a concealed entertainment system in the Family/Media Room. As you walk in the room, the first thing youll notice is the beautiful Seura TV MIRROR. Not just a TV, not just a mirror, the Seura TV MIRROR beautifully, seamlessly and successfully integrates into the home décor.  This stunning television is complimented by a complete surround sound system with in-ceiling speakers and concealed electronics.

In the sitting area you will find another television concealed in a cabinet with a motorized lift.  When desired, the TV appears with the touch of a button.  When the TV is not in use, the furniture remains the focal point of the room and the TV disappears from view.

All the electronics in the room are controlled by one-touch operation with a Crestron control system and touch panel.  The Crestron system is also linked to a Lutron lighting and shade control system.  This combination allows the user to control the lighting and raise or lower the shades with a single button press.  Not only do the Lutron dimmers and shades help maximize energy savings, but the Crestron system also monitors energy usage and savings.
