Invasion of the Spheres

When designing all the things we wanted in our upstairs remodel, we thought of all kinds of neat inclusions such as:

  • Centrally wired in-ceiling speakers: two in our bedroom, one in the bath, one in the spare BR.
  • Flush globe fixture in our Bedroom, when we're not using our romantic sconces.
  • Suntunnels, which let in so much daylight we don't turn on lights during the day
  • Recessed lights in areas with low (7 foot) ceilings (hallway, spare BR)
  • Required safety - hardwired, interconnected smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
All different systems that sound cool and function pretty well, and keep it from feeling less like a dark, cramped converted attic and more like bright, airy living space.

UNTIL...
You awaken from a wild dream, and, upon opening your eyes, are briefly are tortured by an onslaught of UFO's flying down to you. It's an invasion!



Had I known that these spheres would provide a celestial effect and remind me of Spheres, we might have totally exploited it and intentionally lined things up mimicking planets with moons and planetary rings, an entire solar system, or even an alien invasion! Since it may be difficult to imagine, I have a color-coded key for you:
Green = ceiling speaker
Yellow = suntunnel
Blue = recessed can light
Red = smoke detector
Purple = smoke / monoxide


Scary, isn't it? And that's without adding in the Spheres in our master BR!

At any rate, this certainly is yet another interesting byproduct of HumphreyHouse's evolution.

p.s. thanks for the link for the solar system. it has been awhile since my schooling days, i forgot all about that thing.

What you have are ceiling freckles. Another common byproduct of renovation with the inclusion of many new electronic devices is "wall acne": it starts with one small switch here, a dimmer there, a thermostat over there and voila, your entire wall is covered with switchplates and controls.
