The Picket Fence

Chic people in the know in Ketchum, Idaho, know where to go to buy all the necessary bits and pieces they need to live comfortably – from luxury linens to unique works of art to glamorous gifts, all under one roof.  Since 1978, The Picket Fence has been the place to find that special something… like these:

Herb Garden Soap and Lotion

Herb Garden Soap and Lotion

This herb garden soap and lotion set created by James Boyce for Voluspa is an amazing gift for those friends who live in the kitchen.  These items complement culinary scents, and are soothing and healing for chefs’ hands!

Guacamole and Salsa Bowls

Guacamole and Salsa Bowls

Elegant and fun dishes by Arte Italica make the perfect gift because of their versatility.  We also love them because of their size – small yet able to hold the right amount of guacamole.

Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins

A wonderful personalized gift!  This modern cocktail napkin is a fun twist on Sferra’s traditional style.  Our favorite colors for summer are raspberry and kiwi.

Juan Diego Box

One of our favorite artists in Jan Barboglio; her pieces are unique and heartfelt.  Give this box to the hostess with the mostest with a secret note hidden inside.

Palais Royal Pencil Tray

Who doesn’t love John Derian’s creative decoupage pieces?  This classic colorful tray can be used in so many ways; as a piece of art hung on the wall, a tray for your beside table, or a decorative tool to hold keys and other knick knacks in your entryway.

Mabel The Butterdish

If you’re looking for a whimsical gift for the hostess with a sense of humor, then Mabel the Cow is your answer.  This is a classic gift that is perfect for any tabletop.

    Hi I just wanted to come by and answer your question about the paint color in my playroom. It is Martha Stewarts, via Home Depot called Lemongrass. It is the prettiest Green, not too yellow and not too blue and mid-value green, soothing and calming and still fun. It is the perfect green for my spring colored home. Check it out, I think you will love it. Also, thank you for your visit and sweet comment.
