It is official, I have spring fever! I walked out onto my front porch this morning and all of my camellias were flowering. I am trying to suppress the urge to wear my new flowered sundresses. Warm weather here we come.
I decided that no one does spring better than designer Annie Selke. The colors and prints speak for themselves and her interiors scream spring. When it comes to Selke, the photographs do the talking.
Owner and designer of Pine Cone Hill, Albert and Dash Rugs and Annie Selke Home, this colorful woman is everywhere. She has a line sold through Vanguard Furniture and retailer Calico Corners.
A charismatic pioneer of color and comfort, Annie Selke designs with approachable elegance in mind. Celebrated for her commitment to fabulous and functional home décor, Annie is the irrepressible visionary behind widely acclaimed home textile companies, Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert Rug Company, and licensed collection Annie Selke Home, a dynamic new line of case goods, upholstery, fabrics, and trims. Since founding Pine Cone Hill in 1994, Annie’s kaleidoscopic design aesthetic has yielded thousands of creations, from vibrant bedding and whimsical rugs to innovative furniture and upholstery, in a guided effort to create a truly unique, finished environment.
With an incomparable zest for design and an infectious appeal, Annie Selke’s design enterprise is constantly expanding. Each month, her captivating creations and inspired interiors are saluted nationwide in top shelter magazines and a variety of other media. The Annie Selke Companies’ products are sold in thousands of high-end specialty stores and major catalogs such as Neiman Marcus and Sundance, an impressive roster that continues to grow.
A consummate world traveler and avid flea-market treasure hunter, Annie gathers inspiration—and steam—wherever she goes. Her longtime love affair with vintage patterns (sparked by an early addiction to the Colefax and Fowler wallpaper in her room at Miss Porter’s School) and her background in art history, merchandising and product development (Fashion Institute of Technology, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ferragamo, Conran, Museum of American Folk Art) fuel Annie’s remarkable creative vision.
With the help of her talented staff and her dashing husband, Whit (who oversees operations and sourcing for the three Annie Selke Companies), Annie continues to design all her products from the Annie Selke Companies’ sunny headquarters in the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts.
