[All interior design by Angie Hranowsky; photography by Squire Fox.]
It has now been a year since Charleston-based interior designer Angie Hranowsky gave us the scoop on her personal approach to collecting art. In the months that followed, she assembled some terrific regional art for Coastal Living's Idea Cottage and had Squire Fox photograph her adorable kids at home with her own pieces in their family's modern 1970s era house. (Yes, Angie uncovered something akin to a Mies van der Rohe in historic Charleston).
Her art collection is so personal and reflects what she loves; I think that, along with her brilliant use of color, is what brings warmth to the clean-lined rooms she tends to favor.
If you missed it on the first go round, read her thoughts on being open to art wherever you find it, then spend some time looking at her salon-style grouping at the top.
For fun, Angie also shared some of Squire's lifestyle shots with me. These offer a glimpse of her house's exterior.
Moving from the Lowcountry to Atlanta, how many of you recognize the spot below?
Halima Washington's cityscape, 7:30 p.m. pm in Virginia Highlands, is sold, but more of her urban scenes are available. I particularly like her use of impasto and her very small works.

Halima teaches at Callanwolde community arts center and is represented by Anne Irwin Fine Art. She also donated works for the 2010 Spotlight on Art market.

One more bit of Atlanta news: the High's debut event, Collectors' Evening 2010, was a big success. Guests cast votes for not just one but four favorite pieces that will become part of the museum's permanent collection. Click here to read all about it.
