When you work for a design company， you don’t have to go very far to find people with oodles of visual style. In fact， when we thought about having some fresh new faces style beds using Annie’s Pine Cone Hill products， we only had to walk a few steps down the hall to round up some talent. Today we’re bringing you two all-new takes on summer bedding， thanks to our own stafferspersonalized gifts for girlfriend， Customer Service Rep Laiken and Product Designer Emily.pillow cases vintage
Let’s get straight to what makes these beds so special.
What we love： Besides， well， everything， we think Laiken’s choice of tailored coordinates makes this bed a feminine yet nonfrilly delight. She played up the color， choosing multicolor printed sheets and shams， a matelassé coverlet and shams in a bright peacock blue， and a vintage-look stitched pillow and throw in the same vibrant fuchsia， but in two completely different textures. Then she topped it off with a linen duvet in white to keep the look light and airy.
Oh， and we also love that Laiken’s dress goes with her bedding picks. Couldn’t have planned it better ourselves.
Steal Laiken’s look：
Amelie Sheet Set and Euro Shams
Diamond Peacock Matelassé Coverlet and Shams
Trio White Duvet
Candlewick Fuchsia Decorative Pillow
Boyfriend Fuchsia Matelassé Coverlet
What we love： Emily isn’t afraid of mixing patterns and colors， and several of our favorite summer hues—tangerine， citrus， and pink—play important supporting roles here. But let’s face it： this look is really about the prints， from the brushstroke-y floral on the duvet and shams to the paint-chip-style printed sheets， and the throw pillow embroidered with happy poppies. It’s a look we might find at a high-end Caribbean resort， and we can’t get enough of the tropical-escape vibe.

A few posts ago I wrote about DIY Pumpkin Ideas for Pinterest Picks and even though I am not the craftiest person (I’m really not a DIY queen by any means) I still wanted to have a pumpkin carving/crafting day with Dan. He could not remember the last time he carved a pumpkin but was surprisingly excited about it and carved not one but two pumpkins! I don’t think either of our end results came out as amazing as we’d imagined but we’re still fond of our creations and they’re proudly sitting on our apartment patio.
This post is inspired by one of my favorite bloggers ScissorsPaperWok.? She has a post where she used shrink plastic to make custom buttons. ?This idea was genius! ?I decided to expand on it and instead of punching traditional button holes, punch holes for letters. ?So when you sew the button onto the garment it will have a letter on it. ?Super cute for children’s clothing.Supplies need to make your own shrink plastic buttons:
