Get the look of this black and white dining room from our Winter catalog

In an ever more complicated world, sometimes it’s nice to take things to a simpler place. But of course here at Ballard, we still want simple to be stylish! That’s why black and white is one of our favorite color palettes. It’s classic, easy to coordinate pieces, and can still deliver a dramatic focal point.

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.

3 dreamy winter bedrooms designed to inspire a bedroom refresh in your home

Here at Ballard Designs, we base our decorating philosophy on one principal — having a space that reflects your personality. We spend the majority of our lives at home, so why shouldn’t it feel comfortable, inspiring, functional, and reflective of who you are? Often people neglect the rooms guests never see (like bedrooms), and we get it. But what a shame! We want to inspire you to turn your own master bedroom into a dreamy space that’s meant to make you happy and refreshed to take on the world.

Black and white accents in a living room

There’s no more classic color palette than black and white, and a black and white room affords you the space to have fun with new pillows and accessories without needing to totally overhaul your foundation. It’s a palette we come back to over and over again, and in this iteration, we used our new Teigen fabric in the form of pillows!

Get the Look: Dreamy, Pink Bedroom

Neutrals pair beautifully with blush to create a dreamy, pink bedroom

Blush is the perfect color to use in a bedroom because it’s universally flattering. This space is primarily made up of neutrals — like a gray rug, charcoal gray curtain panels, flax bedding, and a ivory wall color — but just a few blush accents like our Mazey Pillow on our Nala Bench in Suzanne Kasler’s Blush Linen, the space comes alive!
