Alison Victoria Has an Amazing Way With Modern French Luxe!

If you have enjoyed the show on HGTV, then you already know. Chicago’s Alison Victoria is a passionate creative dynamo with gorgeous European inspired style. I am catching up on episodes of season three today, and while it was inspiring to watch the redesign of a 1922 condo located on a favorite Chicago street…good gracious, she proceeded to outdo herself creating a 7-figure new build with Old World style (and an atrium!). AV’s passion for restoration, renovation, and masterfully mixing antiques with new is refreshing. This collection of glimpses will inspire and honors an incredible designer in my neck of the woods: Alison Victoria.

I’m crazy about this designer’s style and honor her relentless pursuit of beauty as she creates modern French and European inspired luxe interiors for clients across the country. For the kitchen renovation below, a young family relocating to Chicago from Boston trusted her to reimagine a 1912 home for modern living.

It was soooo heartwarming to see their reaction at the reveal. What is uncommon about seeing Alison on the screen across months of renovation work is how she openly shares the pitfalls. There are always snags, and as a real life renovator myself, it’s refreshing that the hiccups and heartache are not omitted.

What an amazing transformation of a two-bedroom loft! Have you ever seen a custom range hood with an artistic paneled front like this one?

The color palette in this home is consistent with what the designer favors.

Alison joyfully hunts for the perfect pieces for each property she designs, empowering the rest of us to re-use, reimagine, and re-purpose items from the past.

Victoria often designs new pieces incorporating antiques in order to bring instant age, soul, and character to elevate a space.

A single episode of her show on HGTV is an education for renovators, decorators, and design lovers who hope to have the rustic/refined mystique demystified.
