In 2015, VT is pleased to announce our entry into home. Our motto has always been image, identity, clarity, and defining your style type gives you a place to begin. Once you have reached that clarity, it is a natural evolution to translate that into your environment as an expression of your authentic self.
Designing your home based on your style type (or at least infusing the elements) allows you to create the perfect space that represents the best version of you. Join us each week as we share our point of view on the incredible world of interior design, applying our principles and philosophies to everything from art and architecture to current trends and designers.
Last week we mentioned the importance of defining your personal style and the image you would like to put out there in terms of your home. Whether you live alone or have a family, it’s important that your own aesthetic or that of your family “brand” is reflected in your home. Again, it may sound a bit unconventional at first to think of your family as a brand, but when you get it right, it actually makes a difference in how you relate to your the way your house feels like your home.
This week, I am going to focus on the first style type, “Classic,” and present some perfect examples from the VT point of view. If we were to take classic literally, we would have to go all the way back to ancient Greece. The classic style type in decoration is somewhat timeless, transcending most current trends in décor with a very finished or polished look. If you are thinking in terms of fashion, imagine Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Loro Piana, Brunello Cucinelli – you get the idea…-Joe
