“word to the wise” wednesday: victoria hagan

So much of what I do is about how people live, and I am always looking for balance.  I love it when rooms come alive with a personality, and I like things to be real and honest and reflect the people who live there.  We designers definitely have a point of view, but it depends where a home is and who the people are and what they like.  It’s a process.   You ask lots of questions and you listen.  It’s the listening and the seeing and the feeling – it’s all about the senses.

    I love both but I guess if I had to choose I'd pick country. Hagan's book is just lovely and exquisitely art directed, which I discussed in my review last month!

    It's definitely about feeling!! (And seeing and listening) I can only work with people who I "get" and who "get" me. OK, that's not true. But it's what I prefer :)

    love the city desk due to all the open space but no storage, always a trade off!
