Victoria Hagan’s design book Interior Portraits (Rizzoli, October 2010) came out back in October, but I’ve been so busy these last few months I’m just catching up on my reading now. I’ve been a fan of Hagan’s work for years. Her environments are quiet, yet strong, perfectly balanced and sophisticated. I especially admire her sense of composition, serene aesthetic, and way she incorporates statement artwork.
A great big canvas adds life and color to a neutral room, picking up on the colors and lines of the rug.
A double contemporary portrait paired with an Oriental carpet and luscious cranberry velvet sofa.
A photo adds movement to this wood-panelled study.
I love how the drapes on the French doors correspond to the fireplace surround.
A room with a view, and an extra large mirror to reflect all that light.
