Our team truly appreciates beautiful home exterior and interior design, so today we’re thrilled to introduce you to someone who possesses amazing talent and expertise in the interior design arena.
Meet Victoria Jones – owner of Studio James!
Studio James is a full-service interior design studio based in Vail, CO and their aesthetic, professionalism and personalized service really is spectacular.
Victoria, who previously worked for one of the world’s leading interior design firms for over a decade, had a moment of clarity one day and realized she had reached her full potential and had hit her ceiling. So, like any successful entrepreneur Victoria made the decision to start her own studio, and it’s been a success every since.
We wanted to hear more about Victoria’s journey and her fabulous company, so we asked her a few questions..
How would you describe your design style?
Mountain Modern. We embrace the feeling of the outdoor environment and work to bring that same vibe inside. We focus on comfortable, clean lines to create a warm and inviting space that speaks to our clients soul by utilizing a neutral color palette with interesting textures and small pops of colors.
What makes you different from other interior designers?
While I appreciate design trends, I appreciate longevity even more. We create spaces that won’t feel dated or boring in five years. This may come as a shock, but I believe it is not possible to create a space that is stands the test of time because the only constant in life is change. At Studio James our object is to create a space that a good set of neutral bones and structure that allows the client to make small modifications over time, like changing out pillows or even a rug, versus renovating their entire home each time we see a new trend.
You’re doing some really cool things with technology. Can you share more about this?
Of course! I am launching a 3D rendering service to my clients. This allows us to communicate better and I can share my vision for their home in a more productive way. I’m really excited about this because I know it will make the experience for them that much more enjoyable.
Your clients love your level of service. What do you attribute that to?
It’s simple, I listen. By taking the time to actually understand the clients needs and desires is something I really take pride in. Sometime clients have a hard time explaining want they are actually looking for, so we go through a discovery phase where we communicate visually to ensure we’re on the same page and that they’ll be ecstatic with the end-result! I also make sure I have a solid understanding about how they plan to use their home. This is huge and can affect a lot of details.
What is your favorite part of the actual design process?
For me, it’s the journey. Seeing the project start from either a plot of land or dated interiors and watching their home turn into a dream come true really touches my soul. I also find it fascinating how clients who start merely as strangers become great friends along the way.
Who should contact you for interior design needs?
We work on both home remodels and new construction projects and can serve anyone in the Vail Valley area or beyond. We’re experienced and excel at designing the entire home, which includes space planning, fixture and finish selections, kitchen and bath design, furnishings, linens, right down to the flatware the client might need the night they move in to host a dinner party! We typically focus on working with second home owners and are often brought in by the builder or architect.
Here’s what Todd has to say about Studio James:
Victoria is absolutely amazing at what she does! Her ability to give clients what they want and need is really exceptional. She also loves our community dearly and is involved in it in a lot of ways. We’re grateful to have someone like her here in the Valley to serve homeowners.
