Victoria Hagan has long been respected for the intelligent integration of architecture and interior design. Her design philosophy features a refined use of materials, sophisticated color, and strong silhouettes.
Since founding her firm over 20 years ago, Victoria has designed an extensive number of versatile projects throughout the country, from the most elegant urban residences to casual weekend retreats, noted residential developments, and innovative corporate interiors.
Soon after Victoria began her career, The New York Times described her work as “the most cerebral, the one bound to be influential,” and she continues to be a major force in the design community. She is continually featured in such publications as Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, W, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, Traditional Home, In Style and Interior Design. Vogue exclaimed that she defies the old school implications of the term ‘lady decorator.’
Sophisticated urban residence
Victoria Hagan ‘s interiors defy quick categorization. They are neither strictly traditional nor strictly minimal-what they are is intelligent, classic, and calming, a fresh mix of sophisticated colors, textures, and shapes. Where some designers might stick to a prescribed list of dos and don’ts, this one sees an opportunity to do her own thing. “You can respect the rules but also make your own,” she says. “I like a space to be beautiful. And a touch unexpected.”

Simplicity makes itself evident again and again in her clean lines and restrained use of embellishments. As for comfort, she designs her rooms to be used, walking a fine line between stylish and livable. Both of these qualities are manifested in projects that run a distinguished gamut from high end residential, corporate, and hospitality projects.
