Holidays with the Hables


This season, we are taking the time to celebrate new and old traditions. One of our longest-running traditions is our holiday collaboration with Hable Construction® to design our festive felt stockings. The Hable sisters, Susan and Katharine, are serious about the holidays in their home, so we sat down with them to chat about their traditions in hopes of inspiring some new ones with our family and yours. Here are their thoughts.

Get Creative with Stocking Stuffers

Homemade stocking stuffers are really thoughtful – and many don’t take a lot of time! We love the idea of using found shells as salt cellars. You could also drill holes and string them to make a necklace or a decorative garland. Tiny paintings make a sweet gift, and don’t forget chocolate!

New Pajamas on Christmas Eve

We have a family tradition of always getting a new pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve. These genie pajamas were our favorites! Traditions like this one build lasting memories and give you and your family something to look forward to for years to come.

Making a Game of Trimming the Tree

The holidays are a HUGE deal for us at Hable Construction, so we always travel home to Texas to spend these special times with extended family and friends. Here’s a little peek of the tree at our mom and dad’s house. Every year, our mom hides a golden pickle somewhere on the tree and whoever finds it gets a special gift!

Start a New Tradition with New Designs

Sometimes a beautiful personalized stocking can make the gift inside feel a little more special. Our favorite additions to our holiday collection at Garnet Hill are these printed botanical stockings in berries, floral, and greenery. We are proud to expand the selection beyond our forever-festive wool felt friends and add some beautiful painterly designs from Susan’s artwork.

A pop of summertime color — starting now!


Colorful Summer Bedding and Home


Sailor Blue. Tiger Lily Orange. Ocean. Coral. Golden Delicious…

Take a spin on the summer color wheel with Garnet Hill. We’ve collected a beautiful array of original shades, soothing to vibrant. Not only do we celebrate color in every design, but we also put rooms together by coordinating and contrasting hues and patterns. Here are some of our favorite picks for adding a healthy dose of seasonal color to your home:

Watercolor Floral Duvet Cover and ShamFrom splashy watercolor flowers to a sunny cottage garden, a vibrant floral print is a great way infuse color into a bedroom. To maximize decorating options, try selecting a print with many different colors. Pull from it for color inspiration for years to come — and everything will go!

Mini-Print Percale BeddingLive happily ever after with seasonal prints like blue Whales, navy Anchors, sand-colored Sand Dollars, quirky Bicycles, full scales of Musical Notes, and more. A playful sheet pattern is a great way to introduce color to the space and instantly change the theme of a bedroom for the season.

Flip-Side Quilt and ShamNothing screams summer like a light and airy white bed with just a splash of hot color. Vibrant solids are a great way to make a more potent color statement. We recommend a Ribbed Cotton Matelassé Coverlet for an intense statement, or a Flip-Side Quilt that’s two colors in one!

Garnet Hill Fair Isle Hooked Wool RugA real showstopper and a forever favorite with customers, the Fair Isle Rug is hand-hooked from soft wool in vivid color combos that enhance the whimsical spirit of its folkloric patterning. And this round rug works in any room, from bedrooms and guestrooms to playrooms, entryways, and family living spaces.

Garnet Hill Doormat CollectionSometimes swapping out a design for a new color or design will make all the difference and instantly change the look. A cheerful motif on a natural coir doormat, a fresh stack of plush towels, a cozy throw draped over the end of a bed…all invitations to add an instant burst of color (and comfort) to a home.

Monochromatic, tonal, or bold and bright… What’s your favorite color story this summer? For more fun ideas and color combos, including our designer rooms, explore the current home collection.

Stylist tip: the secret to perfectly plump decorative pillows


Shoreline Hooked Wool Decorative Pillow Covers

What’s the secret to fuller, plusher decorative pillows? It’s a question we get all the time from decorating enthusiasts when they’re putting the finishing touches on rooms or reinvigorating their bedding ensembles.

Cable Knit Decorative Pillow Covers

Our stylists have a simple solution: use the next size up in pillow inserts, if they’re offered. This works best with square pillow covers — so for an 18” square, try a 20” insert, and so on. This gives pillow covers the right amount of added oomph. It can make a big difference, and helps the design details shine.

Garnet Hill Heads to the Hamptons


Garnet Hill Store in Bridgehampton, NYThis year, we’re summering in the Hamptons! We’re opening our retail doors for the season in Long Island’s enchanting east-end enclave of Bridgehampton. The store will give Garnet Hill fans a touch-and-feel experience with our best products: rich bedding in soft linen, crisp cotton, and woven silks, plus cashmere robes, airy cotton fashions, distinctive accessories, and more.

Customers will be able to peruse Garnet Hill’s bedding and home decor, as well as favorites in sleepwear and apparel. The store will offer everything from the authentic European cotton flannel sheets that launched our company, to the full array of beautifully designed products that we’re known for today!

“We’ve put a lot of thought and care into our premiere store’s design and location. And Bridgehampton — with a charming downtown that is both low-key and a destination for home design resources — felt like a perfect fit for us,” says Claire Spofford, Garnet Hill president. “We think customers who know and love us will be excited to ‘meet’ us for the first time and we’ll be a pleasant surprise to new customers as well.”

Located at 2424 Main Street (also known as Montauk Highway) in the center of Bridgehampton’s downtown district, the interior of the 1,700 square foot store juxtaposes the honest simplicity of our New England roots with the comforts and casual glamour of the modern coastal lifestyle.

The official grand opening of the store will happen Saturday, June 27. We’d love to see you there!
