This Week at Gatewood Hall

It has been a busy week here at Gatewood Hall Gracious Home. If we missed you last Saturday or Sunday we were at a linen and gourmet show in Atlanta. We felt productive and got a bunch accomplished. Mostly re-orders but a few new things and a couple of new lines. If you haven't been in recently please do...we have the store already for fall and a ton of new merchandise.

The furniture pictured above arrived this week. I love the bar stools and dining chairs! They have that Jenny Lind look that I am crazy for and the ticking and burlap make me sing!!! Come in and see for yourself!

Also just in is Ralph Kylloe's newest book, proving that he is the king of rustic, this is Kylloe's 20th book on the subject that exudes both luxury and comfort, history and innovation. This time Kylloe focuses on the work of Larry Pearson, AIA, who is recognized as a leader in rustic design; his work has been featured on the Travel Channel's Grand Castles of America and HGTV's Spectacular Homes, as well as in major shelter magazines, including Veranda and Metropolitan Home. Pearson Design Group was the recipient of Mountain Living Magazine's prestigious 2009 Home of the Year Award.

Fifteen rustic homes (Montana, Wyoming, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Minnesota and California) designed by Pearson are featured in this book. Sympathetic to regional conditions and using local materials, these homes showcase deliver solace and comfort to their inhabitants through a series of innovative spaces based on historic precedent and celebrated through the personality of hand craftsmanship. Ralph Kylloe, leading authority on rustic furniture, is the author of 20 previous books, including Cabins, Rustic Artistry for the Home, Cabin in the Woods, Cabins and Camp, Rustic Traditions, and The Rustic Home. We love his books if you don't own any yet treat yourself to his newest, you'll be addicted!

Finally, please don't forget about our block party on Saturday night September 18, 2010 6-9 pm. We will have some refreshments, prizes and a few specials so please bring your friends and come in and see us!
