Breezy, Beachy, Classic Interior Design

March 9, 2017

One of our favorite styles takes its inspiration from the West Indies. Breezy and laid back with classic furniture pieces, this look can take more formal pieces and make them perfect for everyday life.  Fabrics are neutral and linen and woods are rich. The history of this style came about with various European countries settling in the Caribbean islands. As a result, there are interesting variations amongst each island from French, British, and Dutch influence to African and native Caribe influence. This blend of different cultures creates a rich, yet relaxed look that is entirely its own. The best thing about this look is that you will feel like you’re on a tropical vacation in your own home. You don’t have to live in the Caribbean to have a fabulous West Indies inspired space. Get started by taking the fun and easy Vavaroom Style Quiz and the online interior design... Read More

Why So Much Aqua?

August 11, 2016

A somewhat frequent topic of conversation between one of my best friends (also a designer) and me is what we get the most requests for. The color that pops up again and again for us both is aqua. Why is it that this color is asked for on the regular? Obviously one factor for us is that we live along the coast of southeastern North Carolina, but there has to be more to it than geography. To many it is a very calming and soothing color that creates a restful retreat as it can be unobtrusive and quite demure and to others it is bright and joyful and reminds them of a day at the beach. There are countless variations on the color itself. Some tints are more silvery and quiet, while others are bold, spunky shades that border on turquoise. I’ve found that aqua can really work as a...

What’s Old Is New

May 10, 2016

Ever heard, “What is old is new again”? Yeah, there is so much truth to that. I feel like every year I am seeing something from the past revived in a slightly new way. Being very introspective, I have thought to myself that we are very alike to the Victorians. How? They did the exact same thing. After the new ideas of the Neoclassical and Empire styles, it was like they ran out of original ideas. They went on to embrace the old, but interpreted in a new way. There was revival after revival of past styles. Gothic revival, Neoclassical revival, Renaissance revival… the list was endless. And then of course there were later revivals of the revivals. Goodness! We have been doing the exact same thing for the last thirty years or so. While we can look at an older interior and say, “that looks very 80s,” there is... Read More
