Award-winning designer Victoria Hagan presented “Living in the Present, Inspired by the Past.” With a signature style that has been described as New American Classic, “a modern sense of luxury that is fresh, restrained and iconic,” Hagan has spent over 25 years as one of the country’s most in-demand designers. Though based in New York City, Hagan and her family have a home near Sesachacha Pond, and she has completed numerous projects on Nantucket. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design, she now sits on that institution’s Board of Governors and has been inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame.
This September, Rizzoli with publish Live Now, a book in which Hagan explores the nature of home and how it connects, calms, comforts, and nourishes us, featuring designs from twelve featured properties. Click here to preorder Live Now from Nantucket Book Partners!
