Ballard Designs fabric guide

Ordering upholstered or slipcovered items online can feel daunting when you haven’t seen a piece in person, can’t touch the fabric, or even get a true read on the colors. And while we offer free swatches for all of our fabrics, we wanted to help you understand and shop for the right fabric for your piece! So, we put together this handy fabric guide to help you get a feel for the options we offer and what will work best for your next project.

When our team is coming up with our new fabric collections for a season, not only do they focus on color stories and themes, but they look for fabric options that can be used on a variety of items! After all, you can order yardage of any of our fabrics to use for your own project, so we want to offer fabrics that are versatile enough for whatever you need!


Winter Color Palette: Mineral & Drift

Decorating a room with icy blues and neutrals

This Winter’s collection was very obviously inspired by icy blue likes mineral and aqua. Tempered by lots of taupes and grays, a few jolts of blue can really wake up a room and give it a fresh feel. Our Kaley Aqua fabric is one of our favorite new fabrics for our first 2015 collection. We love the way this pattern feels almost tribal but in vivid shades of blue. To pair with the Kaley Aqua, we used our Piper Mineral fabric. This crisp linen-cotton blend has a watercolor effect and a fun, updated dot print!

Injecting graphic pattern throughout a home is a delightful way of bringing life, personality and a little joyfulness into a space. And if you’ve been shopping with us for a while, you probably already know that one of our favorite go-to patterns is animal print. But what you may not know is that animal prints, like leopard or cheetah, don’t have to be loud to make a statement. They’re actually one of the easiest prints to incorporate into almost any decor scheme. So if you’re looking to take a walk on the wild side, follow our lead.


Winter Color Palette: Bark & Taupe

Decorating with warm and cool neutrals

It’s a common misconception that you can’t use several different neutrals in a room. If you use lots of tans, then you can’t inject gray. If you’re using black, you can mix in brown. We’re here to dispel this rumor!

Reproducing vintage fabrics for Ballard Designs

You’ve probably heard a few of our stories over the years of finding inspiration in a beautiful antique we’ve uncovered on our travels abroad. It usually involves a piece of furniture, a chandelier or even a botanical study. But this story is a little different. This fall, we’re introducing two new Fabric by the Yard selections based on vintage scraps of fabric we’ve found. Yes, fabric.

If you’ve flipped through the pages of our summer catalog, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve loved infusing all of our pages with a coastal vibe. Whether it’s strong navy-and-white color palette, soft sandy neutrals with hints of the sea, or a light watery aqua from top to bottom, ‘coastal’ always feel fresh and relaxing, a Ballard Designs favorite! Inspired by the spaces in our Summer 2014 catalog, we’ve broken down exactly how to get that coastal look straight from our pages to the web!
