Fall is officially here and that can only mean one thing…wardrobe re-vamp! It’s time to put away the tank tops and bring in the sweaters; swap out those summer sandals for your cozy boots. For some of us, switching over our closets from summer to fall can be quite the ordeal. So today’s feature is focusing on helping you transition your wardrobe slowly, and working your favorite summer pieces into your early-fall ensembles. The best way to make a summer top outlive its season, is to layer it with fall accessories. A classic fedora and a lightweight scarf are the perfect pieces to warm up your look. Finish off your outfit with a skirt in a heavy fabric (think wool or tweed) and equestrian-style riding boots. Before you spend hours swapping out your wardrobe, take a look at some of your favorite pieces from the season, and find new ways to love them!

With summer on the horizon, it’s time to pull out the fancy tabletop essentials and throw a party! By that, of course, we mean ladies’ brunch, high tea or baby/bridal shower. With those occasions in mind, we created three looks using our favorite tablecloths, napkins, dishware, glassware, serving pieces, trays and more. The best part is, you can easily achieve the same result at home! Simply choose a standout piece–we love our Khaki Petit Rose Creamer, Pine Cone Hill Chickles Napkins, or Shabby Chic Khaki Table Runner–and let it set the tone for your color palette and theme. Mix and match with pieces you already have, and shop our tried and true kitchen and tabletop wares, to complete the setting with a uniquely personal and charming touch.

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!

Her vision of American design comes alive in her products and more recently, in her new book, Fresh American Spaces. Today Annie shares her “give” and “get” lists for the holidays, along with a favorite memory from her childhood:

My favorite family holiday tradition is… My favorite and most vivid holiday memory was hanging and opening stockings at my grandparent’s house in Bedford, NY. Instead of what most consider traditional holiday stockings, my grandmother used to cut pairs of panty hose in half, one leg to a person and hang them on the wooden fireplace mantel. They were seemingly insignificant when hung, but when we would come down in the morning to see what Santa had brought, each stretchy stocking had taken on its own unique shape, dictated by the presents held within. A dime and a tangerine were at the bottom of each stocking and there was always a stack, usually of books or games, under each stocking that the stocking just couldn’t accommodate. We would need help getting them off their nail as the stockings reached from the top of the mantel down to the floor and the weighed quite a lot! I remember my stocking being taller than I was and just loving opening each individually wrapped present and enjoying the tangerine at the end!

Give like Annie…

Expressions of Color: Hot Pink

This is a color that gets noticed for all the right reasons – it’s sassy and fun, bold and captivating. Girls of all ages walk a little taller when decked out in their favorite shade of hot pink. But be warned, it’s not for the meek. Showcase your creative decorating ideas by adding striking accents of hot pink to classic interior palettes of white, warm caramel and honey.

Expressions of Color: White

A symbol of purity and innocence, some may not think of white as a color at all but it’s been a Layla Grayce favorite from day one. Perfect for coastal decor schemes, layered with multiple textures all in white or as an accent to bring out other colors, white is a shining star in our book. Shop all white products here.

Expressions of Color: Dusty Blue

Toned down but still with enough impact to carry a room, dusty blue has a delicate vintage quality when paired with chocolate and cream accents. Perfect for boy bedrooms, it also serves as an ideal color to ground interiors when used in rugs and bedding. Shop all dusty blue products here.
