From time to time, I like to check in on the websites of some of my favorite designers. Some update fairly often, while others go months without doing so. While checking in on Angie Hranowsky’s website, I was excited to see a new (to me) project! Angie designed Coastal Living’s 2009 Idea House in Charleston. The use of bright, cheerful colors stood out to me, especially as we approach winter. Angie always employs colors and patterns so beautifully, so it was no surprise that she did so in this house, too.
I am a huge fan of her work because she really understands how to make a room look layered. She mixes styles, colors, textures, patterns, and price points. She mixes old and new, traditional and eclectic. This house, like Angie’s style, is beautiful and well-designed, but equally warm and inviting.
The portrait in the dining area is not a painting. It is made from vintage bottle caps. How cool is that?
I like that Angie plays upon the height of the room through her use of long, sheer drapes and tall vintage lamps with sixties-style shades.
Looking from the Staircase to the Kitchen
The kitchens Angie designs always feature the most incredible tilework and this one is no exception! I like that she chose smaller pendant lighting. Anything larger would have felt too cumbersome for the size of the room. The Boston Functional Pendants are perfect!
I love the modern look of the cabinetry!
Downstairs Powder Bath
The library is a study in purple. Notice how many textures are present in this room alone.
All of the furniture chosen for this project is both cozy and chic.
This bright, little nook is sure to be inspiring for whomever is lucky enough to work in this space. I love the clean lines of the Parsons desk against the curves and warm color of the seventies chair. Thomas O’Brien’s Terri Tall Table Lamp in Alabaster is the perfect accent!
The master bedroom features a bed with a dramatic canopy. I really like the combination of the ethnic print fabric and the luxe, silk lining.
The room certainly has a global vibe. Ethnic fabric, Moroccan-inspired tables, and rattan furniture with a Caribbean vibe.
I absolutely love this gorgeous dresser!
Brass fixtures are definitely gaining in popularity! Not the shiny stuff of the 1980s, but hand rubbed antiqued bronze, like the finish on these French Deco Horn Sconces from Circa. The gold hardware and lighting paired with the creamy cabinetry makes for a very luxe look.
