Contemporary Designer Profile: Victoria Hagan!

It’s Thursday, which means we’ve got a great contemporary interior designer who is shaping, forming and transforming interiors into some of the most beautiful spaces enjoyed today. As you may have noticed we don’t just profile anyone; only the best and brightest in this field so that you may find inspiration for your own interior spaces. Today’s designer is Victoria Hagan.

With one look you can see immediately both what it is that ties all of Hagan’s interiors together and what makes her famous: her sleek, clean and fresh style. Spanning everything from traditional, modern and even transitional, her rooms don’t all look the same, but they definitely share strong characteristics, like no fussiness, a huge amount of comfort, great textures, lots of light, wide openness explored, lots of neutrals and more.

As with all greats designers, she of course excels at transforming a formally empty space into just what the client needs/wants, and it seems clear that her clients treasure comfy and sophisticated rooms that feel full yet wide open, comfortable yet formal enough for a nice party. Her rooms look like the sort of spaces celebrities and dignitaries would want, but she also works for regular folks.

If you’re looking for a designer who has a list of accolades, you’ve got one with Hagan. She’s frequently featured in publications like Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Elle D├ęcor, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, House Beautiful and more. A graduate of the highly acclaimed Parsons School of Design, she’s even on the board of governors there. Having made many interior design top 100 lists, she’s also been inducted into Interior Design hall of fame. She also travels around the world giving talks on the profession, and is often featured/quoted in design books. Skim her beautiful photos of interiors she’s designed on her website for inspiration!
