Monday Musings - Vicente Wolf

My designer friend Meredith Heron and I were texting the other day about design, fashion and blogging…the usual convo for us. During our chat we were brainstorming of ways to keep my blog content entertaining to read. Yet wanting it to reflect my belief; if I write what I'm passionate about (good design) and use my every day work as inspiration, I will have loads of interesting things to blog about. Blogging is incredibly inspiring too, which luckily for us design bloggers, elevates our design practices. Meredith had some good advice to help me stay more focused on my blog; I'll be writing regularly on certain topic points with a little twist each week. I would love to hear from you on what you think! Here's a link to Meredith's blog for some more sweet inspiration. Click here. For today's Monday Musings I thought it would be appropriate to start with a quote from my mentor Vicente Wolf.

“The drama of this interior doesn’t come from the obvious; it comes from the strength of the point of view. The rooms are sets—not for theater, but for living.”                                                                                                                                                    —Interior designer Vicente Wolf, August/September 01

Here's a picture of a Nantucket holiday home I had the pleasure to go see with Vicente at the beginning stages of the design process. Even though the budget was generous, Vicente still designed it so his client's summer home was completely liveable using stylish, yet easy to maintain furniture and materials. You really can have both beauty and function with the help of a good designer.
