VT Home: Life in Color – The Blue Trick

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.


When Jesse Garza and I wrote our second book Life in Color, in addition to hours of research, there were days of discussion regarding our experiences with clients and theories on color and how it makes you feel. The color blue is always a color that people respond to in a very positive way. We painted our offices in pale shades of blue and without fail, when we had meetings or visitors, people loved the space and felt immediately at ease.

So we called it “The Blue Trick” and began wearing blue for most television appearances and interviews. We now pass this trick on to you–it goes both for your wardrobe and your home!
