Elle Decor's A-Team (Part III)

The other week, we started a new feature, looking at Elle Decor's 2010 "A-List of 25 interior designers." Some are well known to us and some vaguely familiar, but all have distinguished themselves as the best in the industry (at least according to Elle Decor). We thought it would be fun to take a look at these taste makers each Monday - to see how they appeal to our own aesthetic and even find a little Key West in their style if it exists.

Catch up with:
Part I
Part II

Today - I only have time for two (hmmm....will it be only one by next week?) Here they are:

Victoria Hagan

ED (Elle Decor) describes Hagan's style as "merging traditional aesthetics with the requirements for modern living. Her crisp, uncluttered designs are not only visually appealing, her many clients...find them supremely peaceful."

We love how she uses blue as a neutral, how she maintains a classic elegance, but pairs it with modern expectation for comfort, and how she gives existing natural light a significant presence in her designs.

Charlotte Moss

ED describes Moss designs as having "livable glamour, inspired by English, European, and American traditions, channeling those iconic influences into a wide range of expressions - country manor pretty, cozy chalet, Anglo-American suave - whose common denominators are comfort and suitability."

It was hard to find a handful of Charlotte Moss images since there are so many to choose from. Since she doesn't have a "portfolio" on her website, I just trolled around the Internet and grabbed a few that appealed to me:

Seems like Charlotte Moss can do it all (and pretty much has), but what we love best about her work is how she manages to make her spaces look like they're filled with treasures without an uncomfortably cluttered feel.

Any thoughts so far on Elle Decor's selected designers?
