i am a huge fan of house beautiful magazine and all the stuff they do. my inspiration folder is filled with pages pulled from this publication and one article that i followed in particular is annie selke's home makeover. she took a 1970's ranch house and transformed it into a space with tons of light and a contemporary feel, and she did a lot of it herself!
for those of you unfamiliar with annie selke she is the owner and designer of pinecone hill which started out as a fabric design and bedding store based in western massachusetts. her company has since grown to design furniture, rugs, fabric, bedding and sleepwear!
you can see the entire makeover at house beautiful's site but here are a few photos to get you started:
