Q&A with Designer Bill Peace

Interior Designer William Peace, ASID

We’ve been huge fans of fellow Atlantan and award-winning interior designer, William Peace, ASID, for years. Through his design firm, Peace Design, Bill specializes in high-end residential projects as well as interiors for destination restaurants, museums and select showrooms. First-hand witnesses of his work, we admire the way his spaces come together in seemingly effortless fashion, at the crossroads of classic design, comfort and luxury. Bill stays away from trends — you won’t find outrageous color and pattern here — and is a firm believer in quality craftsmanship. So when he agreed to design a bedroom and living room for us using Ballard product, we were beyond thrilled, and even a little honored to receive his stamp of approval. Naturally, we loved the end result and got a chance to chat with him about the project afterward.

It all started with a pool. After Karen Mooney, VP of Creative for Ballard Designs, and her husband Joe, who entertain often, installed a pool in their backyard two years ago, they quickly realized they needed easier access to it. “We had no way to get to the pool except to go through our master bedroom and bathroom,” she says. “Needless to say, it was a little uncomfortable for our guests.”
