Unique Blog: Being in love with our work is always the key to achieving better results. Are you in love with this job? What do you love the most about being an interior designer?
Vanessa Rome: I am extremely passionate and in love with what I do. My mind is constantly going with ideas. When I close my eyes at night I envision myself walking through the rooms of the projects I am working on and imagining what I will create. I never stop!
Unique Blog: Do you have a favorite project or a favorite story about one of your projects?
Vanessa Rome: Our family summer home in Sag Harbor, NY. We hired a pre-fab company to build our house and after a few weeks of placing the shell of the house, the builder could no longer finish the job. Which meant I had to step in to get it done in time for the summer season! While it was an unexpected challenge, it was a crash course in learning the ins and outs of the building process. My work paid off. Our home was completed on time, and we adore it! It is our happy place.
Unique Blog: How important is to have the perfect chemistry between you and your clients in order to achieve the best results?
Vanessa Rome: It is important to have a mutual respect and understanding between client and designer. This enables the client to trust the designer enough to allow them to take risks and be creative. In turn, the designer must respect that ultimately this is the clients’ home, and they need to feel at peace within their surroundings ( and budget!).
Unique Blog: Do you think that working with teams in interior design is better or worse than working alone? Why?
Vanessa Rome: Interior design, like Art, is subjective, so I personally find it best to work alone on the creative process. But that is only a small part of any design project. It is impossible to be successful without an excellent team of craftsmen.
Unique Blog: Keeping up to date on all the trends is essential for anyone who wants to conquer this market. In what ways do you keep current with new trends?
Vanessa Rome: I am always traveling to various trade shows around the country and Europe to find new vendors and see what’s new in the market. I also read all the design magazines and blogs. I study the work of designers I admire and try to understand their design concepts.
Unique Blog: How would you describe your work style? Do you have any kind “signatures” that help to identify the projects created by Vanessa Rome Interiors?
Vanessa Rome: I always mix high and low. Vintage and new. I don’t care for uber modern spaces that are cold and uninviting, even if they might be pretty to look at. I try to stay true to my creative vision, while also making practical, livable spaces for my clients. I do this by incorporating lots of texture, and I favor organic furniture and materials in neutral palettes. And each room always has that one special item that “makes the room”.
Unique Blog: All artists need some inspiration to work, and interior designer are artists too. So, what or who really inspires you?
Vanessa Rome: Art, Architecture, fashion, and jewelry all inspire me. Jean Louis Deniot so far is my favorite designer.
Unique Blog: If you had to pick one project around the world that you wish it had been made by you, which would it be?
Vanessa Rome: The Royal Mansour hotel in Marrakesh. I have never seen anything quite like it. The architecture is amazing. It has a mystical, exotic feel from the moment you start to walk up the extra long driveway before reaching the hotel. The use of local artisans who are true to their traditions really appeals to me. It is full of detail upon sumptuous detail and every room is like it’s own perfect jewel. I also happen to have a special love for Morocco because my mother is from Casablanca.
