More Than One Way To Skin a Flat

Simon Harriyott is on to something when he suggests using CSS for painting, in fact I can see an interior design framework emerging.
  • Skinnable walls, floor, doors and ceiling
  • Polymorphic furniture: Today it's a baby changing unit, tomorrow it's a toy cupboard
  • An extensible Integrated Decorating Environment including but not limited to:-
    • Visual designers with code generation implementing the GOF Decorator pattern
    • Project templates for bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, studies, utility rooms
  • Automatic garbage collection
Project codename: Windows Interiors Framework Extensions.
