HGTV Smart Home 2021 Tech, Wellness Expert

If you are wondering how I connected with the smart folks at HGTV/Discovery, last year I was thrilled to attend the influencer event for the HGTV Dream Home 2020 in Hilton Head, South Carolina.  Designer Brian Patrick Flynn gave me an Alexa/Delta faucet demo which I captured here?

 

This moment aligned perfectly with my passion for home and garden innovation and technology.

I’ve now spent the last year helping research and identify technology and wellness elements which can help make all of our lives smarter, healthier, and, honestly, more fun! Below I’ve outlined some of the items identified in my research woven into the home build and smart design created by rock star, Tiffany Brooks.

Home Helps Mind, Body and Soul

Now more than ever, HGTV knows how truly important home is. It’s not just a place where we eat and sleep. For many of us, home is our family hub, our office, our place to learn, and our haven. So, this year’s HGTV Smart Home is designed to help consumers lead a life well-lived – mind, body and soul. From the latest tech innovations, to smart organization solutions, to rooms created with health and wellness in mind, join HGTV as they redefine what it means to “live smart.”
