Custom Wallpaper Imagery: Vintage Control Panel

Happy Friday to all of you. We're celebrating the end of the week with a custom wallpaper installation featuring a vintage control panel. The connection? As our fingers anxiously hover over our shut-down buttons, I can't help but still marvel at how much simpler our lives are due to modern technology.

While one could easily make the opposing argument that technology has served to lower our quality of life and interactions with "real" human beings, just think where you'd be if your home or work computer looked like this little honey featured in our wall mural in the inspiration room. If technology is a necessary evil, at least we can have the latest and sleekest gadgets to divide our time.

So this wall mural is clearly an homage to those early days when computers took up an entire room, and coding was done by hand on index cards. The mural has a bit of a steampunk sensibility, what with the archaic looking knobs on a rusted out cover panel. We've come a long way baby, and this custom wall mural is the perfect illustration of that.
