Happy September (sniff, sniff!)
One of the questions posed to me in the Style at Home interview was “If you could shadow any designer for a day who would it be?”
There are so many brilliant designers whose careers I have followed and whose work I have studied and admired. But I had to pick one and Victoria Hagan came to mind immediately. She is a NY based interior designer who has been in the biz 20+ years and has been published in just about every shelter magazine. She also penned a book “Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits.”
I still have this September 2007 issue of Elle Decor (you know I’m a bit of a magazine hoarder) on my bookshelf in my home office. On the cover is the living room of a Hamptons home Hagan designed. I love the neutral backdrop with the shots of colour and that she used a hint of mint and chartreuse even though they don’t relate to anything else in the room. Love all of the textures, the wall panelling and the livable and relaxed vibe.
I still love this cover 5 years later.
Here are some other inspirational images from her portfolio for you to enjoy! I must admit I’m drawn to the work featured in her “Waterside” portfolio.

What do you think? If you had to answer that question, which designer would you choose?
Have a happy long weekend (to those in Canada and the US!)
