make it yours: anne m. cramer

After viewing the gorgeous Sneak Peek of fashion designer Anne M. Cramer’s Minneapolis home, I am desperate for a sleeping porch! What an enchanting room, with the bright green wall color, white linens, sheer curtains and wire bed frame. I can certainly envision many relaxing summer days curled up on the daybed with a magazine and a glass of lemonade!

    What a gorgeous porch. My bath is that shade of green with a dose of white and a geranium red old tub. I wondered if I’d grow tired of it, but after 5 years I still love it, especially on winter days when all the world is white.
