Q&A with Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert’s founder Annie Selke
LG: Describe your aesthetic, especially as it relates to spring.
AS: I love textiles, I love color and I love comfort, so when I was conceiving the Pine Cone Hill Spring 2014 collection, I thought about all of those things. This season I wanted the fabrics to be totally touchable, feeling like you had washed them many times already. We pre-washed the majority of the collection in pursuit of the perfect hand. I also wanted all of the pieces to transport you to an unnamed but fabulous island, where the only questions you need to answer are: when do I want to eat, sleep, read and swim today?
LG: What was the main inspiration behind your new collection for Spring 2014?
AS: Light and effortless layers in tantalizing-to-the-touch textures and a fresh and contemporary palette – French blue, coral, platinum and indigo – all punctuated with a dash of hot green.
LG: What three words would you use to describe this collection?
AS: Crisp, comforting & calming.
LG: What are your favorite patterns from this collection and why?
AS: Well, of course I love all of my patterns, but I love the go-with-everything quality of Varana, Varkala and Ramala. And everything coral feels really wonderful and, go figure, on trend!
LG: What patterns/products from PCH (Spring 2014 collection or otherwise) can be found in your office or home?
AS: We ship to our customers first, kind of a family hold-back situation if you will, but on my wish list are the Marina sky quilt, Laundered Linen coral throw and Varana sky duvet cover and shams.
LG: Everyone’s design process is different. Walk us through yours. Once you have an idea for a new pattern or product, what steps do you take before the final product is produced?
AS: I wanted to expand on our Cape Calm collection and envisioned spicing up the predominantly blue palette with coral and acid green. I wanted a grouping that included quilts, duvet covers and accessories that would be effortlessly livable and easy to layer in a single or mixed combination of colors.
LG: If you could raid anyone’s linen closet, whose would it be and why?
AS: Hmmm, having gotten a peek at two of Bunny Williams’ linen closets , I would have to grab those. And I am already blessed to have the benefit of my mother’s expertly curated collection of linens.
