One of today s most influential designers, Victoria Hagan exploded onto the scene in 1988 when New York magazine devoted the cover of its design issue to one of her rooms. Since then she has become renowned for her intelligent integration of architectural and interior design, her refined use of materials, her sophisticated colour palette, and her strong silhouettes. Always looking to the view, Hagan effortlessly makes a close connection of interior spaces to the surrounding landscape. The houses profiled ranging from elegant urban residences to casual weekend retreats reveal Hagan s unerring attention to what Proust called the unexpected detail, which makes her interiors beautiful as well as timeless. Throughout, Hagan discourses on the spirit of cherished objects a print of birds in flight, a vintage star-shaped mirror, or a chair with an unusual silhouette that add soul and modernity. With stunning photography and personal insights into Hagan s design philosophy, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits is an artful and inspiring collection of this design superstar s oeuvre.

"Throughout the pages, Hagan discusses the art of design--not just for how her clients live, but for how they dream and play. Victoria Hagan: Dream Spaces
also includes a chapter on tradition, which highlights houses that have that special something that's especially inspirational--and not just the decorating."
"Hagan is masterful at creating calm and serene rooms -- be they modern or traditional -- inspired by seaside living. She is adept at translating her beachy aesthetic to work beyond waterfront estates and her new book Victoria Hagan: Dream Spaces is a testament to that."
"Hagan is an eminent interior designer (who always gets a spot on Architectural Digest's AD100) best known for timeless and comfortable American style. Her much-anticipated second book presents a showstopping glance at her soft, modern aesthetic and pointed juxtaposition of luxury and simplicity."
