T he much-anticipated second book from designer Victoria Hagan, recently described as “the reigning queen of restrained elegance,” features an exquisite selection of interiors—most never before seen—that embody her hallmark “soft modern” look. A major force in the design community, Hagan is a master at melding old and new, showcasing luxury through simplicity, and creating homes that truly reflect their owners’ lifestyles.

Ranging from a Montana ranch to a New York City penthouse, the projects featured in Victoria Hagan: Dream Spaces (Rizzoli New York; $55) are all second homes—oases created to escape the bustle and pressures of daily life. “These ten houses are a testament to the power of dreaming—of wishing on a star—to realize something special,” writes Hagan. “That’s what a retreat is: a place where you feel like your wishes have been granted, where you can feel comfortable just being yourself.”

Like Hagan’s first book, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits, this beautiful and inspiring new work is a must for design lovers and anyone who imagines creating their own dream space.
