Heather Chadduck Hillegas is an interior decorator, textile designer, and photo stylist. As the founding Style Editor of Cottage Living, former Style Director of Coastal Living, and most recently Style Director of Southern Living, her work has defined casual chic and the new Southern style for more than 15 years. Her design work, widely published in national magazines and books, reflects her fine arts training at the Sorbonne in Paris, where she developed her love of antiques and textiles. A collector at heart, Heather loves to hunt and gather vintage finds on extensive worldwide travels with her husband, photographer David Hillegas. Her current projects include lake house renovations in Arkansas and North Carolina, an historic 1800’s home in Delaware, a farmhouse in Connecticut, a luxury yacht in the Bahamas, several homes in Birmingham, and the ongoing restoration of her 1920s clapboard colonial known as Pineapple House.
