Blending classical elements into modern designs is a hallmark of interior designer Victoria Hagan. She brings harmony to any room through her sophisticated use of color, texture, and silhouette. Victoria has been awarded many of the industry’s top honors, including induction into The Architectural Digest 100 and The Interior Design Hall of Fame. She is the author of Interior Portraits, published by Rizzoli, and her work has been featured internationally in many magazines and design books. For Philip House, Victoria was inspired to create homes that are “a classic take on everyday life, a modern twist on traditional living.”
Victoria Hagan has long been respected for the intelligent integration of architecture and interior design. Her design philosophy features a refined use of materials, sophisticated color, and strong silhouettes. Her restrained and elegant rooms are sophisticated templates for modern living.
‘When I was 11 years old, my parents built a house. I remember loving that process but being very frustrated that they didn’t listen to me—I didn’t like the materials they were picking. I had definite opinions, and when I look back on it, I find it amusing that at that age I was so opinionated. My parents humored me—they let me move the furniture around.’
As a designer, Victoria Hagan’s most important considerations are suitability and the close connection of an interior to its location. “When I first begin a project I look to the views and the process begins.” She searches for beauty to combine contemporary and traditional elements into a timeless environment.
Soon after Victoria began her career in 1985, The New York Times described her work as “the most cerebral, the one bound to be influential,” and she continues to be a major force in the design community. She is continually featured in such publications as Architectural Digest, The New York Times, New York Magazine, Elle Décor, Vogue, Veranda, W, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, and House Beautiful. Vogue exclaimed that she defies the old school implications of the term ‘lady decorator.’
