Spring is a magical time when nature starts to bloom with color, so it’s no surprise that for Spring 2017, we’re letting color wake up our neutral rooms.

Ballard Designs' complete guide to styling your bookcases, consoles, and coffee tables

Picking out the right furniture pieces, fabrics, and rugs is only half the challenge of decorating your home. The second half, and sometimes even the most difficult part, is ‘styling’ your room. We think of ‘styling’ as a way to display the decorative objects that you’ve collected and love. It’s that final touch that takes your furniture pieces from simply something functional to something functional and beautiful. For all of us, the decorating objects we use to style our space may be different, but there are some universal strategies that will make styling your home easier.

We scoured our archives, surveyed our design teams, and questioned our stylists to break down all the steps and best tips for you.

Ballard Designs Etta Cachepot serves multiple functions

It’s our philosophy that you should never buy a piece of furniture that just solves one problem. If you buy versatile pieces that can move around your home with ease and that serve multiple functions, you’ll have pieces that stand the test of time. Because of this, we’re always designing pieces with clever, hardworking details — like our Etta Cachepot. It’s not just a plant stand, it can be a champagne bucket when you’re entertaining and a side table too!
