I mentioned Annie Selke in the last post
because I fell for this designer’s fabrics
for my son’s room and the studio.
These are the lime curtains I chose,
and here is the bedding:
Lenox Ticking (citrus) – Pine Cone Hill
If you’re not yet familiar with Annie’s work,
you are in for a threeeee-uhl (that’s southernspeak
and never mind that I’m a midwestern girl).
Go buy her latest book…like immediately.
It did not magically appear in the mailbox,
and I am not being compensated to gush about
I simply rushed out to buy this gem
a few months ago and went wackadoodle.
Much much more than pretty pictures, my friends.
You will LEARN learn LEARN.
Recall seeing a few of these images
of a glorious beach house (Chatham)
printed in House Beautiful a couple years ago?
Please, someone create this space
and invite me over for a cocktail.
I’m little and will drink maybe two…tops.
I’ll create it.
Annie’s quite lovely ladylike
romantic cottage living room.
Like the sexy hot pink wide stripes
peeking through? Ahhhhhhh.
I have these shams in a guest room.
*shameless love note to Annie Selke*
You and your happy rooms inspire me.
The book is divine.
I love that you’re not ALL about big bold color.
You truly know your way ’round a cheerful palette
and how to strike “the balance between
fashion and functionality.”
I’m thinking about using one of your
bright prints (pink!) in my office.
Feelin Annie Selke?
Peace to you right where you are.
