Summer time creates a desire for bold bright colors for some, and for others it evokes a simplicity. I like to think I fall into the latter. I tend to like a bolder style in the winter, and a more refined decor palette in the summer. I think one of the most talented designers when it comes to a refined and refreshing palette is Victoria Hagan. Her work has an ease and sensibility while still creating a room that is packed with high-end style.
Her homes have been featured time and gain, because they are truly timeless. Clean walls, shades of creamy colors, and contrasts of subtle shades exude a lifestyle of classic sophistication, without pretension. Hagan has an immense gift for finding ways to input light in every room. Each room seems like it was destined for it’s design. In her rooms, nothing is a focal point because everything is a focal point. There is seamless blend of style that gives her work a great sense of harmony, without any predictably. That is not an easy task to come by, although Hagan makes it look so chicly easy.
