Explore Graphic Power in Decorating with Diamonds and Stripes
Janet Ramin - What do Annie Selkie, warm breezes, cool linens, and ocean blues have in common? They all evoke the perfect summer vacation home! But you don’t need to have a vacation home to achieve this sunny, relaxed atmosphere – just a few additions or replacements to your interior design will create the look.
Annie Selkie is a textile designer and owner of several companies, Dash & Albert and Pine Cone Hill. Together they bring affordable rugs, bedding, and pillows to the home. Above we have a summery June and July Stripe pillows from Pine Cone Hill, complemented with their herringbone matelasse coverlet.
Selkie also designed a wide range of striped rugs in bright colors and varying stripe widths. There's one for every color scheme you may choose! The diamond rugs have different styles. The tribal rug below is Rhapsody in a woven wool material. The multi-color diamond is the Harlequin and is a woven cotton rug. The blue and white diamond is an indoor-outdoor rug in polypropylene – great for beach homes that have a lot of wet traffic.
