Designers that Inspire: Victoria Hagan...and a great giveaway

142 comments:



 Victoria Hagan is an East Coast based designer with a wonderful pure style

Her work has been featured extensively in Architectural Digest and Elle Decor 
This last year she published her first book called: Interior Portraits

It is a compilation of her work in city dwellings, in the countryside and near the water

And all of it is really wonderful

She has a way of making furniture sort of float in a room

Neutrals are always present, but she has signature colors too, which you can see throughout her work


Careful editing is so important, I think, and she really makes it look simple

I won't show you everything...because I want to give someone this beautiful book

Just leave a comment on this post and on Wednesday morning April 13, 
I will pick a winner at random








Thanks for entering....hope you win!

  2. Oooo! Now you know I'm in the middle of a coffee table crisis, right? This only further complicates things! Look at how beautifully she puts together a seating group. Stunning, really! Ah, I'm swaying coffee table + ottoman after seeing this post, Kelley! Of course, you know I'd love to win ... so enter me. :) I'll keep fingers, toes, and eyes crossed. LOL! Talk soon, xo - A

  4. I love Victoria Hagan and her design style. It is beautiful, without too much fussiness and very livable. She was at the Martha Stewart Show the day after the book launch party for the show on sisters, and she was so adorable with her sister (who I believe either took the photos or wrote the introduction). Regardless, this book look beautiful. Great giveaway!

  54. Hi Kelley,

    I don't know how these things work but don't put me in the draw. I just felt strongly about this post and just wanted to comment.

    I, in the last fortnight have purchased this book and I'm so glad I did. LOVE IT and highly recommend it. The photo's that you have shown in this post are some of my favourites. They are all stunning!

    I agree with everything you've said about Victoria, Kelley. She does make it all look so easy and I admire her for her knack with editing the accessories. Actually, her style reminds me very much of Mariette Gomez-Himes. (I am such a huge fan of hers and have her three books). The colours, paintings even and especially the architecture both Victoria and Mariette sympathize with and I so admire that. I also think they are both masters at floating furniture in a room.

    Another great post and good luck to everyone!!!

    Take care
