I was looking through our archives and realised that we had not paid homage to one of the leaders of interior design, a woman who is a giant in the scene. Victoria Hagan began her career in 1985 and has dominated the American design world ever since. Her style is refined with sophisticated use of colour and dramatic pieces. Instantly recognisable Victoria's rooms are the epitome of good taste whether elegant urban or country retreat.
Rickita wrote us recently looking for ideas: "I currently live in an approximately 450 sq studio apartment. I've been trying to find inspiring decorating ideas for small spaces. Do you have any pictures of studio apartments: specifically wall decoration and storage ideas? I would appreciate the help!" 450 sq ft is pretty small but I am a firm believer that living in a small space doesn't mean it has to be filled with small stuff. My favourite small spaces include walls painted in bold colours or covered in fun wallpaper, some large furnishings, and oversized artwork (or large groupings of artwork). Hopefully the following photos inspire anyone living in a small space.

Because I was stuck at work well into the evening yesterday, I didn't have time to get a post ready for this afternoon. And since I just got back from the upholsterer, I figured maybe I could get away with just posting my chairs with their new cushions I picked up. It was a bit costly, but OMG soooo worth it. She did an amazing job. Now if I can just keep the damn cats off them...
