If you like stylish and modern luxury interior design then you ‘ll be a Victoria’s fan.
«The house is like your second skin. It should fit such definition to a greater degree, than good clothes. After all, it is much easier to change the clothes than the house».
Victoria Faynblat is well positioned to appreciate importance of this moment: she became an architectural and interior designer after having tried to successfully express herself in fashion design.
Although this transition had not been planned, Victoria never looked back, as her soul began an exciting journey into the field of interior design. She decided not to fight this newfound addiction, and in no time turned her amateur hobby into professional level work. She, however, still continues to reinvent herself in new designs, as she deepens her professional knowledge of design.
«There is always something new to learn. However, it is often not the acquisition per se of new skills or techniques, but rather ideas, that are born in your head through such acquisition or more precise under the creative pressure from those new acquisitions. »
After several years of special training and real life practice she remains the regular visitor of professional trainings, seminars and building and interior design exhibitions. Given such events usually take place in the major European capitals of design, they allow Victoria to combine her passion for design with her other passion – travel. Her soul is captivated by beauty of old cities of Italy and France.
«These cities have their own charm, which is difficult to let go of. Local architecture, art, landscapes… all this coupled with the way a life is felt presents that particular «Dolce vita» art even in the most simple details of your everyday life»
The April exhibition of furniture and design in Milan – is one of those annual must attend occasions to visit a favorite city. It gives you a chance to see for yourself the hottest novelties of interior aesthetics and the decor industries, as well as world stars of design and courageous revolutionaries of style…
«In those days a city air is simply oversaturated by flying design trends. It needs to be inhaled with a deep deep breath».
Business meetings, purchases and new contracts – visits to Italy would be incomplete without replenishment and refreshment of professional “luggage”. Victoria’s teachers and masters live and work here, while her cooperation with an eminent local workshop and the design house makes Victoria’s connection with Italy, the land filled with beauty and sun, even stronger.
As shown by Vika’s experience, the seeds of impressions collected around the world, perfectly ascend in the generous Ukrainian soil. But Viktoria does not consider this factor to be of main importance:
«The most valuable ability is an ability to listen and hear. It is absolutely necessary to catch Customer’s wish even if he or she him/herself is not able to clearly formulate it. It is funny to hear but I truly believe that the talent of the interior designer is in his or her ability to know more about Customer’s desires than he or she does … In addition to this, you must convey to him creative ideas, often having before him just barenaked walls to be torn down, or just sad and gloomy empty space. My first profession probably helps me in this a great deal…»
Victoria obtained her first degree in a field of «soul-knower» – psychology. Such training and experience does not stay unused, but is now just one of tools in her arsenal as a creator. Although, as said above, this particular tool comes in handy and often irreplaceable when we deal with creation of individually designed place where people plan to spend their living.
