Last week I made a quick trip to Nell Hills to check out the holiday displays. It’s so fun to have Mary Carol Garrity’s home interiors store, which is a destination for many, in Kansas City.

Actually, Mary Carol recently sold the store to a young couple, so I was eager to see what changes had been made. The store honestly felt much like it did before, which is not a surprise since Mary Carol is still involved in the store, at least for now.

I took many pictures on this visit, so this post will be photo heavy. I hope you find some inspiration here.

Table settings are one of the highlights of any Nell Hills visit.

You know I loved all the buffalo check in this one.

A fall table…

I count at least three different plaid/check fabrics, which makes me so happy.

Check out the candelabras on this table.

A blue, white, and silver table with more candelabras. Lovely for Hannukah or New Year’s Eve.

A woodland theme.

Love all the green.

Now onto bedding, which is another thing that Nell Hills does so well.

I adore this toile.

There were really beautiful pillows and throws everywhere.

Again, lots of checks and plaids mixed together. That’s a Mary Carol hallmark.

How fun would this be in a mountain cabin?

This ottoman was so handsome.

Some other things that caught my eye.

A blue and white lamp always works.

This green lamp was gorgeous!

These black and white houndstooth chairs…again so handsome.

I was happy to see that they’re carrying Gil Schafer’s A Place to Call Home. I love this book (I shared it in this post).

And…the trees.

They were so detailed that I took closeups of some. The deer head in this tree was huge. I would never think to put something so large in a tree on my own, but it made such a statement.

A tabletop tree…

More closeups.

Not a tree, but a gorgeous mantle.

Another beautiful mantle with trees on either side.

Nothing better to finish on than blue and white.

There were baskets of these blue and white ornaments.

And this tree in an urn showcased blue and white ornaments and ribbon.

Thanks for going with me to Nell Hills. I hope you enjoyed it. Are you getting excited for the holidays yet?
