Madison Hall

Carter was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. We try to make it back a couple of times a year, but we are definitely there every Christmas. And I love it. Columbia is a wonderful city and it has become an adopted second hometown for me.

My favorite shop to visit when we're there is Madison Hall - a gorgeous, family-run, home interiors boutique (that also offers design services). My mother-in-law has worked with the family - mother Sandy, daughter Jane and son Peter - for years and much of the beautiful items in her home (that I have often posted on the blog) are from Madison Hall.

It has become a tradition for me and my mother-in-law to head to Madison Hall right after Christmas - the shop has HANDS DOWN the best selection of Christmas ornaments I've ever seen. And they are delightfully on sale the days after Christmas, so I stock up!

Some shots of the "Christmas room" at Madison Hall (and this is just a small sample):

In addition to the Christmas displays, I also took pictures of the store this year to share with you. The shop is always different, with beautiful heirloom-quality furniture on display, perfectly styled with eye-catching accessories (and you'll note quite the Chinoiserie influence).

Take a tour of my favorite shop:

Above was an incredible Chinoiserie mirror, though hard to tell in the picture. See detail below...

Lovely! And better in person...

For those in the area (or if you'll be passing through), Madison Hall is located at 2710 Gervais Street in Columbia (zip 29204) and you can call them at (803) 254-5144.
