Paint colors from our Summer 2015 catalog

Because we shoot in real homes, we are not always at liberty to paint the walls. In those cases, we have chosen paint colors that best match the wall color in the photo. Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish and other factors.  Therefore, it’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first. We use Benjamin Moore paint, but most paint stores can match any color.


Change the Personality of your Room with Art

Change the personality of your room with art

Ever wanted to change the direction of a space in your home halfway through the decorating process? Or perhaps you have a room that you’ve partially furnished, but never really finished? Art is the perfect way to bring new personality into your space. And the great thing about our art options is that you could go in so many directions, depending on which pieces you choose. Art just has the uncanny ability to take a room in a new direction!

As an example, take our Sybil Settee. We love tailored, feminine feel it has, but see how the whole space transforms depending on the art we hang over it!

And if you ask her about it, she’ll tell you that it’s in the details. Lucky for us, she’s put that same thoughtful, creative sensibility into her spring and summer collection for Ballard.
