Meet 28 year-old Gaston Crue Conley, interior designer and self-made man with an eye for beauty. Crue, as his friends and family call him, has had an interest in design for as long as he can remember. At the age of 11 he found himself working in retail in a shop in Swainsboro unpacking merchandise after school. From there he worked his way up to decorating homes for Christmas and, by word-of-mouth, began doing homes from Metter to Augusta.
Crue made the move to Toombs County 10 years ago and in 2013 opened High Cotton Salon. While he enjoyed his new venture, his real passion was still gnawing at him and he continued to take jobs on the side. He finally took the leap to chasing his ultimate dream by selling the salon and in 2016 opening Gaston Crue Lifestyle and Interiors on Church Street in Downtown Vidalia. GCL&I started out as a design center which included retail and gifts but, as his customer base has grown from Jacksonville to Cashiers, NC and from Savannah/Hilton Head to Atlanta, he is now focusing more on outside design work while still carrying a small but high-quality selection of gifts.
Gaston Crue Lifestyle & Interiors specializes in custom furniture and lighting, upholstery, rugs, prints, drapes, and accessories to cover the home from floor to ceiling. He loves a neutral pallet and to pull colors and styles from nature while incorporating the client’s personal lifestyle and the setting of their home.
Be sure and put GCL&I on your holiday shopping list for home fragrances, entertaining accessories, furniture and gifts– and a visit from Kingsley, of course. Holiday Open House will be November 29th.

The Master Bedroom highlights several different uses of the same fabric, mirror image window treatments on either side of bed and traditional pole wrap over the windows/french door. The art pieces hanging over the bed perfectly accentuate the fabric.
