VT Home: Bookworm–The Art Of The Home Library

vt home logo

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.

Through the years I have amassed quite a collection of beautiful books and have decided that in my next home, I will create a space worthy of these treasures. Built-in bookshelves or home libraries not only provide a place to hold your favorite books and objets d’art, they can also help conceal imperfections in a room such as a lack of symmetry, a broken line, or an odd corner. They can also help to camouflage a TV or add height by drawing the eye upward.
