Hi Annie, We love your style and have incorporated your rugs into our home in Provincetown, MA. My mom loves your totes as well. I’d like to send you pictures if you want to see how they look..in our beach house.

Hello Annie,
I am reaching out to you on behalf of a client, Cordapillar. Cordapillar is a new product that is designed to protect your cords and cables while avoiding potential injury.
We feel that Fresh American Style and Cordapillar are a great match because of an article that you wrote titled “Smart Solutions for How to Hide Electrical Cords. Cordapillar is a product designed to safely and neatly do just that.
Please contact me at Steven@vertigomediagrp to discuss any opportunities for collaboration in the near future.

Best Regards,
Steven DeAngelis

Hi Annie,
I’m flattered that you put my work on your site, thank you. Many more paintings coming up, lots going on this year.
I have a second home in Hudson, it would be lovely to meet you sometime. I just happened upon your site while doing the duty of googling my own name, as one does every couple of years or so…

PS. I may have submitted the “comment” twice, internet interruption.

Dear Annie,
I appreciate your line of products very much. And I feel very lucky to have found your bedding products and rugs as they make me smile with their colors and design. For all the “stuff” that is on the internet , your site suits me perfectly. Thank you for sharing your gift of design and color with your fans. For 35 years I worked in the design business and owned 4 stores but once the internet arrived it was difficult to compete. Best of luck to you and your future endeavors. Just one request- ask the stores who handle you to take on more stock and have lots of samples on hand. Fondly, Sandy Glading

I bought the most beautiful Pine Cone Hill linen dress at (lucky for me), a consignment store. It was new… may have been in someone’s closet for a while. I so, so so love the dress, but must have another!! I don’t see linen dresses available on any of your sites. Did you stop designing clothing? If so, do you have any idea where I may still be able to shop for some? Thx. so much. (P.S. Two of my friends have told me that they are tired of seeing me in that dress… I must be wearing it more than I thought. So, to a teensy degree, does this qualify as an emergency? Thx. again.

Hi Jane! So glad to hear you love the dress! We do still offer clothing in our Outlet store which you can shop online as well. Click the Outlet tab on our site to start shopping 🙂

Dear Annie,
I absolutely loved how you incorporated the logs on your property. So aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Love IT 11

Hi Annie!

I recently ordered 3 Diamond Navy/White 2.5×8 rugs to install as a stair runner. My husband followed the installation instructions on your site and it looks AMAZING! (And he’s not a DIY kind of guy.) The rugs are such high quality and beautiful I had him install the wrong side up so there is more navy than white in the pattern! Have pictures I would love to share. Wish I could have Dash and Albert rugs throughout my home!

I recently ordered 3 Diamond Navy and White 2.5 x 8 rugs to be installed as a stair runner. My husband followed the runner installation instructions on your website and the completed project looks AMAZING! The rugs are such high quality and beautiful! I even had him install the WRONG SIDE UP so the pattern appeared more navy than white! I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I have pictures to share too! Love all the rugs on your site! Thank you!

Hi Annie,
You and Pine Cone Hill have always been a favorite.
Is the sheepskin(?) throw pictured in your “Favorite Holiday Gifts” shot one of your products?
If not, are you willing to share the resource?
Happy Holidays!

Nicole December 13, 2017 at 3:56 pm

Annie! Thank you for the Q&A about Bittersweet Designs & my dear friend & boss, Laurie Lenfestey.

I have known & worked with a Laurie for over 4 years & even so, picked up on some new stories for my Bittersweet “quilt”. You are a better interviewer than me.

So excited that you are crushing on Bittersweet.

Nicole February 12, 2018 at 9:02 am

We absolutely love Laurie’s designs and her style!!
