Get the Look: Violet & Sky Living Room

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.

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.

January – February 2017 Paint Colors

January through February paint colors for Ballard Designs catalog

Because we shoot in real homes, we are not always at liberty to paint the walls. In those cases, we have chosen paint colors that best match the wall color in the photo. Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish and other factors.  Therefore, it’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first.
