Guess who graced us with his presence via webcam this week? None other than Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy and widely acclaimed design expert.

In the interview below, Maxwell shows CalFinder how to blend technology into your remodel without destroying your décor. Techorating, he says, is a skill we must learn to make our homes clean, streamlined and drool-worthy—and there are tricks to get it just right. Watch the interview to become a pro.

My favorite device from the interview, the Duracell MyGrid is a charging station that powers up to four cell phones simply by placing them on the grid surface. By using one cable instead of four, you save three electrical outlets and a whole lot of aesthetics.
