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.

In the past, it tended to be favored by women more than men, but has since become quite popular in the past decade in men’s clothing such as business shirts and ties.
Lavender has a calming affect on people while darker hues of purple can look quite rich or even playful and fun. Here are my favorite examples of purple interiors by style type–see which ones appeal most to you!
