Style Profile: Angie Hranowsky

The Living Room at Godfrey Park Place
The work of Charleston-based designer, Angie Hranowsky has made its rounds on the blogs, but I couldn't resist sharing the love. In a time when things are pretty grim (i.e. the current state of our economy, etc), it is refreshing to see vibrant, youthful interiors that are infused with color and personality. Hranowksy's interiors feel current and hip, yet a lot of the furniture and accessories that she selects are actually vintage or antique, and are sure to stand the test of time.

"Combining a refined mix of vintage and new, bold color and clean lines, Angie's interiors take on an unexpected and modern approach to comfort." Angie, an established graphic designer, decided to take the plunge into interior design in the summer of 2004 and studied at Parsons in New York. Her background in art history is evident in her work, as one can tell that she is a very thoughtful designer. She seems to examine how objects relate to one another and creates beautiful stories within the spaces she designs. Her work has been featured in publications such as House Beautiful, Domino, Metropolitan Home, and Home.

Godfrey Park Place: This home was featured in House Beautiful, and happens to be my favorite of Angie's projects.
I love the vintage bamboo coffee table and the Dorothy Draper chest selected for the living room.

A Parsons console in coral and a stylish little bench play host to a pair of vintage lamps.

I love the deep eggplant color used in the dining room, along with the fabulous table, vintage Pagoda style chandelier, and La Fiorentina fabric on the chairs.

I want this little console! How fabulous are the bamboo detail and mirrored inset?

This has to be the coolest vintage bathroom I have ever seen! The patterned, yellow wallpaper goes perfectly with the original black and white tile work. The bamboo-style mirror is in perfect keeping with the rest of the house.

I love this office! The walls are the perfect shade of chocolate. The simple little desk is lovely and the shelving and accessories are fantastic! Notice the great, little jars.

The master bedroom does not disappoint! Angie chose pink and the loveliest shade of blue as accent colors for this room. I love the draperies and upholstered bench!

The room also features a very pretty dresser with an antique silver leaf finish.

Oakdale Place: This is Angie's personal home and was featured in Metropolitan Home and Charleston Magazine.

Again, Angie chooses a rich, chocolate shade for the walls and uses colorful accents throughout the space. This reminds me so much of Erin of Elements of Style!
Angie's living room is filled with vibrant colors, like a fuchsia sofa and vintage chair in purple. I love the lucite tables she used here. They look both chic and fun in this space.

In the dining room, Angie used the same draperies as the one she has in the living room. The Parsons dining table is paired with antique chairs and a Sputnik chandelier.

Downtown Charleston: This home is high on style, though it is slightly more formal.
I adore the rich colors used in this room: gold, deep plum, magenta.

This coffee table is bananas!

I love that Angie played on the height of the ceilings in this grand residence. David Hicks' La Fiorentina draperies are fabulous! The table lamp and vintage glass chandelier used in this room are fantastic, as well.

One side of a very chic nursery (the crib is on the other side). There is no "theme", but a defined color palette was selected.

Tremont Boulevard: This chic abode was featured in Home Magazine.
I love the pale aqua and orange used in the living room. They make for a very chic combination! I also really like the lines of the sofa and the prints above it add a lot to the room and the color palette.

This dining room is just lovely! I adore the vintage chairs, pink vintage lamps, mirror, capiz chandelier, and seagrass wallcovering.

I love Angie's rendition of the plate wall. This is slightly off topic, but don't you just love the smell of seagrass?
