The slip covered chair above is so well designed and very comfortable...it also swivels. I think this is a perfect reading chair for the bedroom, or a pair in a small gathering area would be so useful because they can turn 360 degrees.

O.k. Cupid, It might seem early but Valentines Day is just around the corner are you ready? Don't worry, at Gatewood Hall we can help, we have some great gift ideas and inspiration for your special someone!
We have great napkin box with frivolous heart weight sets by Mariposa. The Jan Barboligo rustic heart-shaped collector wine cork is a perfect gift for him!
How about a romantic table set for two with Juliska dinnerware? For inspiration check out our display table in the store. Shown above we used the the King and Queen of hearts tied with a lovely red ribbon as our napkin ring & place card. We filled vases with conversation heart candies and tea light candles. A red organza runner, old fashioned, heart-shaped paper doilies, and red glitter hearts finish our look!
We also have vintage-look valentine cards, "Be Mine" hand towel sets, beautiful Caspari napkins, music cd's with romantic standards, heart-shaped frames, great gift books and some really fun valentine serving plates and bowls.

This new line of bedding is wonderful and made with 100% organic cottons and linens from France, Belgium and India! They feel great and even offer linens for the baby!!
This new chandelier can be rustic or urban! It is awesome (my photo doesn't do it justice).
This is similar to the bed that we had last year however this one is in a natural / driftwood finish and it is beautiful!
Along with the new lines we placed over 40 orders with existing vendors and their new entries. We have already started receiving some of this new merchandise and will probably be getting shipments over the next 60 days so I'll do postings when we have new arrivals...check back often or better yet just come on in and see us!! Happy Friday, we'll see you this weekend!

The party was so lovely, with lots of candles and her additional beautiful holiday decor. The large round table in the dining room was layered with amazing cakes and pastries, truffles, gigantic chocolate dipped strawberries with fresh whipped cream, another friend even brought delicious pink champagne cupcakes!! There was Veuve Clicquot Champagne (my favorite!!) and a wonderful champagne punch. I loved that our host had a tray with various unique champagne flutes...it was fun to watch guests "choose the flute" that they wanted to be toasting with at midnight!
Remember I said that they were creative and crafty? They have so much fun like a recent family contest where they wrote odd ingredients on pieces of paper, you then drew a piece of paper with the ingredient and they had a "cook off" to see who could make the best dish (Strawberry Rhubarb pie won!). They also had an entire beautiful, gingerbread village on display that they completed with friends at a gathering just after Thanksgiving a tradition that they started years ago...how fun is that?! (I spoke to one of the daughters today and they were doing decoupage projects!)
THANK YOU to our friends who really get the "gracious mountain living" idea, they understand how fortunate we are to be able to be here in this special place. We feel fortunate to have been included in their fetes and can't think of a better way to bring in the new year. I hope their ideas inspire you to put together your own special gathering or maybe even start your own family traditions!
