Home and office decor involves more than matching the wallpaper, carpeting and furniture. And accessories that add warmth to a room are the focus of the new Ashley Hill store, housed in the former Church of Christ building at 1070 S. State.

Owner Doris Stone relocated from Chicago a few years ago and opened Ashley Hill in November. The store features a variety of accessories for home and office, including silk flower arrangements, brass, crystal, European lace, fabric, porcelain, covered boxes, festoons, wreaths and candles.Stone takes special orders and in the past has traveled as far as Denver and San Francisco to make sure clients get just the right accessories and materials.

"I'm getting some of the best response you could get from people in the county," Stone said. "I am proud of my store."

In order to keep up on the latest styles and trends, Stone attends gift shows in Chicago and Atlanta looking for new ideas.

"The homes being built here in Utah County need accessories," Stone said. She specializes in products for the masculine business office. "With more men trying to decorate and coordinate their offices, the store offers a variety of marble and brass accessories."

Stone also has specialty gifts and gift certificates, as well as imported silk flowers that look like dried flowers.

Ashley Hill shares its location with two other businesses - Designer Style and Framer's Corner. Designer Style offers designer fabrics and interior design services. It has several lines of carpeting, furniture, draperies and other window treatments and bed ensembles. The owners have won numerous awards for Parade of Homes interiors and the restored Kearns Hotel in Springville.

Framer's Corner touts creative, distinctive and high quality framing. The store offers more than 1,000 corner samples of frame molding, and specializes in reproduction art prints.

Ashley Hill's hours are from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For information on products and services, call 225-3913.
