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.
An old friend of mine, Robert Harling, once wrote in the hilarious film, Steel Magnolias, “The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.” At VT, we believe that dressing your home is no different than dressing yourself. You must first come up with the foundation or formula that works and then complete the look with just the right accessories.
Styling your home can be one of the most difficult parts of the process. Ideally, you will want to find very special objects that create the perfect accent for the room. The right combination of objects can create the most interesting vignettes in your home. Remember that just like fashion, the right or wrong accessories can make or break the story for the room.
Here are a few interesting finds that might inspire you for your home as well as some examples of nicely styled vignettes. – Joe
