The year so far… 2019 at VGID!

VGID Studio Renovation I cannot express how thrilled we are to have recently completed our studio renovation. Like many of you who have undertaken recent updates, I was motivated by a desire to refresh a space in which I spend so much time; to reorganize the resource area and office layouts so we are all more efficient and productive; and to personally experience the significant impact good design has to elevate our lives. And, I have to say, it has worked! I love the new studio and the energy it exudes. It's uplifting, light and happy. It's the... Continue reading

We would love for you to see how all our hard work paid off! I truly love designing spaces, making all the countless, detailed decisions that are absolutely vital and then watching it all...

WELLSTON STATION – THE MAKING OF THE HOTTEST NEW MUSIC & COFFEE VENUE IN THE REGION

Wellston Station Music and Coffee Venue
We had a wonderful time imagining and then creating the interior environment for the hugely popular new Wellson Station in Warner Robins.  Working to bring Stephen and Connie Rollyson’s vision to reality, was a huge honor and a real treat for us.  We thought you might enjoy a little behind-the-scenes tour of what we did to prepare Wellston Station to be the community hub the Rollysons imagined. Talk about starting from scratch.   My team and I love to take an empty space, a true blank canvas, and create what it will look and feel like to those in the space, and how... Continue reading

2016: KALEIDOSCOPE OF THE YEAR

Valerie Garrett grand child
How does one measure an entire year? That question has been on my mind quite a bit lately as 2016 came to a close and we look ahead to new beginnings. But, I like to measure it in appreciation, gratitude, and love. “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust ON THE PROFESSIONAL FRONT I feel such gratitude for the many people always making things happen, bending over backwards to help me not just do my job, but do it well. I don’t believe... Continue reading

OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING IN OUTDOOR SPACES

Last month, when I was writing about outdoor spaces in my newsletter, I promised I’d take this month to talk about outdoor entertaining.  And whether you’re doing that entertaining in your (newly designed) outdoor space or in your existing yard, patio or terrace—as long as you are capturing the joys that our long summer days hold—that’s all that matters!  What I’ve always found is that those joys are many (and the times, oh, so memorable) when I take the party out of the house. Formal or casual, themed or non-themed, I love hosting special occasions outside. It always feels just... Continue reading
