Get the look of the vibrant living room grounded in neutrals

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. We took the lead from our Opulence Art which is grounded in charcoal gray and upholstered a pair of our new Kathryn Sofas in a charcoal velvet. Then, we let the art and accessories take center stage by using bold oranges and yellows.

Bunny Williams' La Colina outdoor collection from Ballard Designs

Ever since her mix-and-matched dinnerware collection debuted in 2014, we’ve regarded Bunny Williams as our own entertaining expert, so we’re delighted to take that entertaining prowess to the outdoor spaces. This Spring, we’re introducing her first outdoor furniture collection named after her home in the Dominican Republic. Of course, we had to sit down with Bunny herself to talk about what inspired all the new pieces and how she envisions people using her fanciful outdoor pieces.

Get the Look: Blush and Gray Bedroom

Blush and gray bedroom from Ballard Designs Winter 2017 catalog

We’re big fans of blush, and we especially love mixing it with darker, more masculine colors like charcoal or black. We wanted to create a space that balanced feminine and masculine elements to create a restful bedroom, perfect for cozy winter evenings. Our Louise Blush fabric was the jumping off point for this space, which we used on our Camden Headboard and custom drapery panels. Next, we used our Orson Rug which combines a traditional Turkish pattern with a modern, monotone color palette. Add bedding in a luxurious velvet, a mirrored night stand, and a classic x-bench to create a bedroom that’s just right on all fronts.

Well, we’re coming to the rescue with 8 ways to bring more seating into your space.

Cozy living room with light purple and blue accents

Pastels are typically a color palette you’d see in the Spring, but we loved incorporating them into our Winter season because they coordinate so beautifully with grays. Our new Minsk and Cleo Glacier fabrics really inspired us to work violet into the space, and once we got going, we couldn’t believe how many of our favorite pieces echoed that icy blue and violet palette.
