Las Vegas or Bust!

Layla Grayce Annual Retreat in Las Vegas

We ladies of Layla Grayce recently jetted off on a retreat to Las Vegas! We packed a lot of work (and play) into two short but unforgettable days, which we wanted to share with all of you!

We kicked off the weekend with a cocktail party at The Palazzo. We got dolled up, mixed and mingled, exchanged ideas… It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other outside of the office! Our energetic owners, Wendy Estes and Tiffany Harris, also shared some exciting projects currently underway. So stay tuned!

Layla Grayce Las Vegas Retreat with Diane Gottsman

On Saturday, we enjoyed back-to-back etiquette sessions with none other than Diane Gottsman of The Protocol School of Texas. Diane is the renowned expert of etiquette and the be-all-end-all for learning proper manners. We began with Business Etiquette, fine-tuning our skill sets for being professional, confident and gracious. From the art of introductions to the ins-and-outs of sending business emails, there wasn’t a topic Diane didn’t cover!

We then put our table manners to the test over a three-course lunch during Diane’s Dining Etiquette class! When do you place your napkin in your lap? Which way do you pass the bread? Diane left no “plate” unturned, from teaching us the advantages of holding our eating utensils European-style (fork in left hand, knife in the right, prongs down) to showing us where to place our purses during a meal (never hung over the back of the chair, of course!). The ease and grace with which Diane conducted her classes was an inspiration to us all, and a testament to the reason she’s so sought after for her thoughts, tips and useful tidbits for etiquette!

Cheers to good manners!

From Annie To You: New Bella Blue (And A Free Book Too!)

Annie Selke Pine Cone Hill Bella Blue Interview

Bella Blue by Annie Selke of Pine Cone Hill

It’s new, it’s gorgeous and it’s ours exclusively! We are thrilled to be the first to offer you the new Bella Blue Collection from renowned Pine Cone Hill designer and author, Annie Selke. Annie has graciously offered us exclusive rights to introduce Bella Blue and also is including a free gift, her book, Fresh American Spaces to the first to order! She joins us today to talk about the inspiration for Bella Blue and tell us a bit about herself.

Tell us how you came to be a textile designer.
You know, I don’t really think of myself as a textile designer. Isn’t that odd? I consider myself someone with a good eye and a passion for product. That said, I was drawn to all things textile from a very early age (like, four years old) and stayed close to that love throughout college, where I majored in textile science, but not design.

Selke Interview for Bella Blue PCHWhat inspired the new Bella Blue Collection?
Bella Blue is a reinterpretation of our longtime favorite pattern named Caroline. It was time for Caroline to retire, but her devoted fans—and there are many—demanded, in the nicest way, that we fill her shoes. Thus, Bella was born.

In your book, you showcase 5 Fresh American decorating styles. Where do you think the Bella Blue collection fits into those styles?
Good question. For me, she’s a hybrid of Refined Romantic and Everyday Exuberance.

What elements combine to create that look?
Pine Cone Hill Bella BlueFrom Refined Romantic, Bella has the elements of flowers and provenance (the pattern itself, which was adapted from a vintage document print), and detail (in the lovely ruffled detailing). From Everyday Exuberance, she has the element of color—a fresh and pretty palette on a lovely shade of blue, perked up with white polka dots.

How do you like to spend your time when you aren’t designing?
I love to travel, I love to cook, I love to spend time with my dogs, and I love riding the range at the White Stallion Ranch in Tucson, AZ!

Tell us something that most people might not know about you.
I love team cattle penning, also at the White Stallion Ranch! It is the most fun 17 seconds ever!
