Q + A | Violandi + Warner

Who are Violandi + Warner?

We love what we do and we pride ourselves on developing close and continuing client relationships. It all starts there. We listen to our clients, get to know them, and talk a lot about their lifestyle and how they see the space being used. We help create a room that makes their vision a reality. Their input is our most valuable tool, because this interchange of ideas is where creativity begins. We strive to make the process fun and high energy, with excitement and anticipation at every step.

What Inspires the Art you Choose?

Because we are located in a historic and scenic coastal village, we are drawn to Carol’s blue/green/sand palettes. So many of our clients’ homes have water views - marsh, river, or ocean.

We strive to dissolve the barrier between nature’s beauty and serenity in our interiors, selecting paintings that echo the exterior vistas and ambiance.  That we can order a custom-size piece of art to fit a particular space is a bonus, as is the availability of a beautiful frame selection.

 

Favorite Room to Design?

Homes exist for families and social interactions of all kinds and so we love the idea of open, flowing spaces, and the kitchen/dining/family room is our favorite. It is the natural gathering place for families, friends and pets and our goal is to make this an inviting, totally comfortable, unpretentiously beautiful space.  The look should be fresh, while also incorporating pieces that are important reminders of family tradition.

Describe the ideal project...

Tough to answer but possibly our favorite type of design project is when we work with a client & architect partnership starting from the ground up. At this point a small decision can make a big impact on the end design. This is so exciting because the slate is clean, the ideas are flowing and the excitement is palpable. But the greatest joy is seeing all the dreams, expectations and ideas, (good, sometimes off-beat and occasionally just plain wild) come together to create the desired blend of comfort, style and beauty.
