9780847834891: Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits

The first book to survey the work of this iconic designer, known for her serene "new American classic" look. 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 color 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.

About the Author:

Victoria Hagan launched her eponymous interior design firm based in New York in 1991. She has been awarded many of the country’s top design honors, including Architectural Digest’s Top 100, and is regularly featured in magazines. A frequent speaker on design issues, Hagan has also made television appearances on Martha Stewart and Oprah. In 2004, she was inducted into the Design Hall of Fame.  Marianne Hagan is a longtime devotee of design and architecture.  As a journalist, she has written articles for the arts and cultures magazines BlackBook and Room 100.  As an actress, she has appeared on stage, television, and film.  She is also Victoria’s sister.  On working with Victoria, she says, “Writing and researching this book gave me an open-window view into my sister’s talent and vision.  It was a magical vicarious tour.”  A graduate of Duke University, Marianne calls New York City home.

Review:

"Celebrating her firm's 20 years, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits (RIzzoli, $50) captures the decorator's signature style - equal parts elegance and comfort - with projects that include Nantucket cottages, prewar apartments, and a Jackson Hole retreat." ~Elle Decor (October 2010)

"Known for restrained and refined rooms with cerebral atmospheres and strong architectural foundations, Hagan merges traditional aesthetics with the requirements of modern living. Her crisp, uncluttered designs are not only visually appealing, her clients - who include Revlon chairman Ron Perelman and comedian Conan O'Brien - find them supremely peaceful." ~Elle Decor (June 2010)

"For a look at home decor of today, Victoria Hagan, Interior Portraits (Rizzoli, $50) shows contemporary domiciles (stately SoCal residences and N.Y. aeries) - all with the designer's sophisticated hues and refined sense of space." ~California Style
