Cozy Cabin Vibes

There is a Fall crisp in the air and I’m loving it. This weather always gets me thinking of cozy cabins. I know there is plenty of Summer fun to be had at the cabin, but I love a Fall trip to the North Shore of Minnesota. There is nothing like red, yellow and orange leaves popping out. Here are spaces that are inspiring me to create a cozy vibe this Fall.

Inspired :: This Mornings Pins

Oh Pinterest you are such a magical unicorn. I don’t know how I ever lived without you? I can’t believe I use to thumb through magazines. You bring me the perfect blend of style inspiration meets cute kiddo crafty ideas. I will admit I pin a lot of things I will never make or purchase, but it’s still fun to save it to a board. Here’s what I’m pinning this morning. Happy hump day all!

Xo, Annie

Rifle Paper Co. Fabric Inspired Nursery!

I finally started designing the nursery for our second little lady on the way. Time is flying by and it hit me I better get to work. I didn’t have any ideas of how I wanted the space to look. It’s always so much easier to design for my clients vs. myself. I can be kind of a indecisive client to myself.  With my daughter Nora’s nursery we went for a more vintage/bohemian look. I wanted something a little different this time around. I know both of these girls will be special in their own way and their rooms need to reflect that. While combing Pinterest I saw a nursery with a lovely floral Rifle Paper Co. framed art print. I thought art would be a great place to start. Then I discovered Rifle Paper Co. has fabric! I was instantly inspired after seeing their lovely floral textiles. Both Nora’s bedroom and the future baby room have window seats that need fabric. Rifle Paper Co. florals are just what my little gals need. Once I found these fabrics the designs fell into place. The fabrics just arrived today and I can’t wait to dive into my Sherwin Williams paint deck to find wall colors.

The baby nursery fabric is on the left and big sister Nora get’s the floral on the right. See all the lovely fabrics at Rifle Paper Co.



Here is the nursery vision. The plan is to paint a vintage French dresser I have dark blue. This will function as the changing table. I will definitely share with you how that project turns out. The recycled denim rug I already have, so I thought why not try and use it?


Here is the inspiration for big sister Nora’s window seat. The pillows I discovered at World Market.


I can’t wait to share the finished product with you. I have a d.i.y window seat cushion idea that I will be giving you the play by play on. Alright, now off to pick paint colors.
