As a designer, I'm always looking for inspiration. It's pretty much my part-time job. The amount of time I spend online keeping up with the trends, researching new products and checking out what other designers have done recently is crazy. Like, I-should-get-a-hobby crazy...and I would...if I had time. I realized the other day after looking through my inspiration pics that this name, Angie Hranowsky kept popping up, so I decided it was time to check her out and I'm glad I did. Buh-rilliant.
Her bio had this to say,
"An established graphic designer, Angie also has a passion for interior design. In the summer of 2004, she studied at Parsons School of Design in New York. The following year she began to transfer her deep knowledge of design, color theory, and textiles to three-dimensional spaces and announced the incorporation of interiors to her studio's robust design services.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. Her list of clients currently spans throughout the Southeast and Mid-West, and each is a reflection of her fresh and distinctive style.Her work has garnered the attention of numerous style editors, and has since been featured in Metropolitan Home, Domino, Charleston magazine, Home, and House Beautiful.Angie has a BA in Art History from the University of Cincinnati and in 1997 graduated from the Portfolio Center in Atlanta, specializing in graphic design."
But, her portfolio says it all. Here are some of my favorites...
Check out the details of this space. How that lovely sofa is pulled away from the wall with a sofa table behind it, allowing for the lamps. The visual lightness of it all. That coffee table with the fabulous base that still let's the rest of the space shine. The sherbet colors as the pop. Just plain pretty.
Turquoise, fushcia and purple against white walls. Love it. And Dear God, I love that floor mirror.
Her use of color is so fresh. Reminds me of fresh cut watermelon and honeydew.
Have you noticed the divine lamps she uses? Most are vintage it appears...keep your eye out for interesting bases at second hand stores and remember, it's easy and inexpensive to change out the shade.
