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

Perfect Plants For Your Perfect Room

August 1, 2016

Fiddle leaf figs are everywhere and I’m sure you’ve seen them a million places by now. It is the coveted, of-the-moment (A very long moment, I grant you) tree that interior designers are putting in all types of splendid spaces. I, myself was lured by their ginormous glossy leaves and fun shape and purchased one last year and I love him. Yes, him. I named him Cam. I feel like I try much harder to keep my plants alive when I humanize them. He looks perfect in my living room in a blue and white Chinoiserie pot. Cam is definitely a lot more high maintenance than I thought he was going to be. He sits in a corner between two windows that face north. It is recommended that fiddle leaf figs receive bright, indirect light. A perfect spot! He did great for the first 9 months or so. I watered... Read More

Coastal Design For Every Location

July 18, 2016

I am fortunate. I get to live in a town where others vacation. Living near the beautiful waters of the southeastern coast is a dream come true. Due to my locale, I absolutely love coastal style. There is something so breezy and effortless about it while remaining inherently chic. Coastal design can mean different things to different people depending on where “your coast” is. With many different coastal styles, some things remain constant. Furniture in a coastal interior should always be low maintenance and cleanable. Living rooms should be laid back areas meant for friendly gatherings. Bedrooms should put the rest of the world far away to create a completely stress free retreat. The focal point of any room with a coastal feel should be nature. Working in natural elements and colors creates a design that is in harmony with it's surroundings. From the traditional, soft low country interiors of... Read More

The Real Focal Point

June 5, 2016

When planning a room nowadays, it is so instinctual to want to make the focal point in the room something like a fireplace or a television. Stop right now! While this may work some of the time and may be the only option in some instances, it is time to find the real focal point. The real focal point is nature. Anything we humans do cannot match the beauty of nature. Interiors cluttered with accessories and loads of pattern or bright colors keep the focus inside and on the objects within. If you don’t have a nice view outside of your window, this can be great and work well. If you are fortunate enough to live somewhere with beautiful surroundings (trees, water, desert, etc.), then take advantage of it. Keep accessories to a minimum and maintain a soft color palette to ensure the emphasis remains on your beautiful surroundings and... Read More

What’s With All The White Walls Y’all?

May 3, 2016

My mother and I have always poked fun at my grandmother for her house that has nothing but white walls. We poked fun enough to where she eventually listened to us and painted a few rooms in soft blues. But looking back, maybe she had the right idea. Recently my grandmother, being the sharp, witty woman that she is, said to me with a smirk, “I noticed in all the design magazines everyone has white walls.” Just a couple years ago I, like the rest of the world at the time, could not accept a room as finished if it didn’t have some sort of hue on the walls. White walls were almost sinful! A missed opportunity. So what happened? Why all of a sudden did the entire world grasp a hold of taking white-out to a space? My theory is that after years of having no white in our... Read More
