Summary

The first book to survey the work of this iconic designer, known for her serene "new American classic" look. One of todayrs"s most influential designers, Victoria Hagan exploded onto the scene in 1988 whenNew Yorkmagazine 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 Haganrs"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 Haganrs"s design philosophy,Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraitsis an artful and inspiring collection of this design superstarrs"s oeuvre.
