For two decades, Mona Hajj has crafted interiors that combine a far-reaching global vision with an American emphasis on elegance, comfort and simplicity. Her distinct aesthetic is a culmination of unique experiences and rare qualities. Through her education in Europe, Lebanon, and the United States, as well as her extensive travels, Hajj developed an eye for the defining detail and an international range of visual influences – a combination that makes her work at once highly specific, and culturally and historically diverse.
Hajj’s instinct for selecting the ideal element – be it an object, furnishing or textile – is a central component of her style, providing both singularity and serenity. Despite her ability to distill her designs to their essentials, they feel neither overly formal nor forbidding. Rather, Hajj’s belief in ease and availability, whether in the city, country or beside the sea, results in interiors – no matter the style or period – that are colorful, textural and delightfully livable. As the designer herself puts it... "When people walk in, I want them to feel their home is the only place in the world they want to be."
Mona Hajj has been selected as one of ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST’s 100 top designers and architects in the annual AD100 listing. Likewise, she was recently placed on the ELLE DECOR A‑LIST of top interior designers. Her work has been published in numerous magazines and received wide recognition over her 20 year career. Her first book, INTERIOR VISIONS, was published on March of 2011 and her second book A ROMANCE OF EAST AND WEST was released in the spring of 2019.
