Blush pink pillows mixed with bold animal print

Pillow covers are the hardest working tool in your decorating arsenal. A well placed pillow can ‘pouf!’ give your room a whole new color palette.

But did you know you can order a pillow cover in any of our fabrics? Because of that, it’s simple to get that perfectly coordinated collection of pillows in your home — the ones you usually only see in designer spaces. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite fabrics to help you get a designer look using our custom pillows in some of our beloved fabrics.

Introducing Our Helena Bedroom Collection

Helena Bedroom collection from Ballard Designs

Great style is constantly evolving and changing. That’s what makes what we do so much fun. We find joy in building on the looks we love — or reinventing them. The trick is staying open to those possibilities.

As you well know, we love Louis, and our Louis Bed has been a favorite for a long time. Recently, though, we started thinking about the evolution of Louis. What if we took the things we love about this bed and redefined them for a more pared down, yet equally elegant, look? Our design senses immediately started tingling. And this is how our Helena Bedroom Collection was born.

Get the Look: Bedroom in Spa

We're showing you how to get the look of this peaceful, spa-like bedroom in blue

Bedrooms are a place for recuperating and healing — a place free of distractions where you can be at peace. That’s why we love having a really polished by clean space, and for us, nothing quite achieves that pretty, peaceful feel more than the color blue, especially our signature spa blue. We chose a gorgeous wall color (Lookout Point by Benjamin Moore) to complement our Jardin Toile Quilted and Gwyneth Bedding Collections. We brought an exclamation point into this classic room with our plush Reynolds Bench with Brass Nailheads and the most luxurious Deep Teal Velvet.
