Q&A with Annie Selke; Founder & CEO

Layla Grayce: What is your name, title, and how long have you been with Pine Cone Hill?
Annie Selke: I’m Annie Selke, Founder and CEO. I’ve been with the company since the beginning!

LG: When and why did you decide to showcase your brand on Layla Grayce?
AS: Tiffany and Wendy contacted Pine Cone Hill while Layla Grayce was still in its infancy, and from our initial conversations, it was obvious that they had a clear vision for their new brand. This made the decision to showcase our products with them very easy.

LG: How has your brand and its style/offerings changed over the years?
AS: We’ve expanded our selections dramatically since the beginning while staying true to style-driven design and superior quality. We also introduced Dash & Albert rugs to the world a little over 10 years ago along with Fresh American—a collection of sassy yet practical home items, with a focus on indoor/outdoor use in 2013.

LG:  Where do you see your brand 10 years from now?
AS: I envision making more homes happy with products that stand the test of time. In early 2015, we will be launching a luxury brand that will include Exquisite Italian/European bed linen, gorgeous wool, and silk carpets and upholstered headboards. We have also recently introduced Dash and Albert to Europe, and we plan to expand globally.

LG: What is your favorite memory working with Layla Grayce over the past 10 years?
AS: It’s hard to think of a memory that isn’t up there as a favorite. Tiffany and Wendy have been such positive partners to work with over the years, and we always have more than a few laughs when we get together. One that stands out is when I had the opportunity to host them for a visit at our offices in the Berkshires in Massachusetts. It was lovely to show them our offices and have them meet everyone involved in the process at Pine Cone Hill. My dog Dash fell in love with them—he always did favor gorgeous blondes!

Summer Color Inspiration: Blue + Yellow

Blue and Yellow Tablescape and Dining Room Inspiration @LaylaGrayce
Featured On: Style Estate

Summer offers decorating inspiration at every turn! Whether on a coastal vacation or gardening in the backyard, the season’s vibrant hues spark ideas for every room in the home. Inspired by sunshine and the seaside, we’re finding ourselves drawn to the classic combination of blue and yellow. We did a little hunting and collected a few images of our favorite living rooms and bedrooms that incorporate these colors, just for you!

A foundation of neutral furniture allows you to easily weave these colors into a room’s decor. Blue stripe and floral patterns decorate throw pillows and curtains for a fresh touch, while yellow accent pillows offer a bold complement.

Updated Blue and Yellow Cottage Bedroom
Featured On: House Beautiful

Nothing excites and surprises in a space quite like blue and yellow accents. In this bedroom, the simple white wood chandelier, bed and benches receive a touch of pizazz from a yellow striped headboard, solid yellow nightstands, royal blue ottomans and light blue, coastal-inspired bedding.

When combined with bright yellow furniture and accessories, light blue walls are anything but boring. The contrast of sunny yellow decorative accents helps soothing blue shades pop into a space.

Even if you’re not ready to paint every room blue or fill your space with bold yellow prints, you can take small steps to add this combination to your home, like pairing a bright blue vase with a classic yellow wing chair (check out the room above!).

Pine Cone Hill Giveaway + Annie Selke’s Happy Layla Grayce Room Design!

Annie Selke for @LaylaGrayceHappy almost-weekend, design fans! I’m Annie Selke, founder and designer of Pine Cone Hill, Dash & Albert Rug Company, and Annie Selke Home fabrics. For nearly twenty years, I’ve been searching all over the globe for the most inspiring ideas to translate into fun, functional, and fabulous bedding, rugs, sleepwear, table linens, and accessories. I also created the blog Fresh American, where you’ll find tons of tips on decorating, entertaining, shopping, cooking, travel, and more. When my good friends Tiffany and Wendy (co-founders and owners of Layla Grayce) asked me to be offer up some tips today, I was thrilled! What better place to discover fresh finds for the home than Layla Grayce?

Since we’ve got a case of the winter blahs here in the Northeast, I really want to think spring and start shopping for bright, perky products that give a generous dose of happy to the home! I started with my new Pine Cone Hill Watercolor Floral Sheets, and created a painterly palette of citrus-inspired colors—an effervescent mix of sassy shades that really makes a room sing.

Dash & Albert Rugs

Dash & Albert has long been one of our most beloved brands—and for very good reason! Producing gorgeous cotton rugs, wool rugs, area rugs and more, which are as durable as they are beautiful, Dash & Albert is the absolute go-to in our books when it comes to flooring your décor with the perfect amount of graphic pattern and color.

Familiar yet fresh, the bright Rhapsody rug (above) is one of our new favorites, dancing with a tribal-inspired diamond design in a bold pink, purple and red colorway. Below, graphic patterns in more subdued shades appear on the Garden Path, Indoor/Outdoor Trimaran Striped, Plain Tin Ivory, and Indoor/Outdoor Catamaran Stripe styles.

A tried-and-true customer favorite is the Indoor/Outdoor Diamond Rug in a light blue and ivory colorway that is easy to clean and is terrific for all high-traffic areas. A bright, fun option is the Yacht Stripe style, featuring broad, alternating stripes in cotton candy pink and white. Perfect for a little girl’s room!

The brightly-hued reversible Clover stripe (below) rug adds a cheerful pop of color to a kitchen, sitting area or bedroom.

If a pattern exists, Dash & Albert has likely transformed it into a show-stopping rug, as seen in the variety of styles below. Dash & Albert rugs coordinate and complement our extensive line of Pine Cone Hill bedding and also work well with a variety of decor styles including cottage, traditional and contemporary.

It would be impossible to not smile in a room with a rug as cheery and bright as these. The reversible Tiki Stripe style, in lightweight woven cotton, makes a bold statement in magenta, aqua, orange and green. Likewise, vivid flowers come to life in the Power Poppies area rug, a low-maintenance style with big impact in a girl’s bedroom or playful living room.

A rule of thumb for outdoor living spaces? Design them just as you would your indoor spaces, and the Indoor/Outdoor Negril rug, which is hoseable, scrubbable and bleachable and has been UV-treated to stand up to the elements, goes a long way towards making you feel right at home in any outdoor space.

Expressions of Color: Aqua

A color so refreshing you want to jump right in, aqua adds an instant dash of coastal charm when used in interiors. Equally lovely when used in fashion and jewelry, this color family ranges from whitened tints of sea glass to robin’s egg blue, wafting like a fresh breeze through the color palette. Shop all aqua items here.

Expressions of Color: Spring Green

Light, fresh and invigorating, spring green has a youthful exuberance; a kind of playful sassiness that you see in children. Paired with white it has a crispness that goes preppy sweet paired with pink, country cottage with blues and classic with darker shades of navy or brown. Shop all spring green products here.

A Bold Step For Rugs
