It’s true, opposites attract. Black and white, old and new, East Coast and West, mix and match.
A fabulous example is the recent collaboration between Annie and West Coast designer Mark D. Sikes. The collection is a gorgeous blend of Annie’s East Coast, traditional aesthetic with Mark Sikes’ West Coast vibe. According to Mark Sikes: “The beauty of this collection is that it can seamlessly mix and match with many styles,” he explains. “I truly see it being layered into all kinds of designs—from a charming shingled house in the Hamptons to a Southern home or a beautiful beach house Malibu.”
We love the mix-and-match vibe of Mark Sikes’ Fairfield duvet cover, which is as reminiscent of the fabrics traded by the British East India Company as it is of a cozy stay at an East Coast inn. Pair with the Sullivan shams and you have the perfect mix of old-meets-new.
We also love the mixing and matching of stripes and florals – like the yarn-dyed stripes of the Montebello Asiatic Blue duvet cover paired with the floral voile Newbury shams and quilt. A perfect blend of East Coast and West Coast aesthetic—tailored, with a twist!
What about you? What is your favorite way to mix and match décor?
