No microwave. No electric coffeemaker. No digital clocks. No TV. No internet. Could you do it? One San Francisco family, featured in the January issue of Sunset, has unplugged their home. Laura Jo Wegman and Donovan Corliss use a stovetop coffeemaker and rotary phone, and have transformed their home office into a home studio, complete with arts and crafts supplies for their two children, ages 4 and 6.
What’s fascinating is the juxtaposition between this low-tech lifestyle and beautiful, modern home decor. That is no simple feat.
I could: give up my coffeemaker and use a french press; limit television time; turn my phone off at night.
I couldn’t: give up the Internet and my phone entirely; is a digital camera off limits, too?
What about you?
