Meet Suzanne Kasler

Suzanne Kasler is inspired. As the principal of Atlanta-based Suzanne Kasler Interiors, she often asserts that “a room should be collected, not decorated.” Incorporating the personal collections of her clients with fine art and antiques, contemporary pieces and custom-designed furniture, Suzanne’s meaningful interiors straddle that rare middle ground between sophisticate and ingénue. As a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning, Suzanne brings a comprehensive knowledge of interior architecture and decorative arts to her design work.Suzanne’s classic interiors have been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Southern Accents, Traditional Home and Veranda. Her widely published work has won numerous awards, placing Suzanne among the elite of America’s top designers. In the fall of 2009, Rizzoli published Suzanne’s first book, Inspired Interiors, featuring her “deft use of couture-like detailing, a keen sense of sublime color selections, and an aesthetic that seamlessly bridges American and European sensibilities.”

Award-winning interior designer, Suzanne Kasler, has joined with Ballard Designs to create her premiere collection of home accessories. More than 40 in all, each piece brings together Suzanne’s unique eye for the unexpectedwith Ballard hand craftsmanship from around the world. The result is a signature collection richly layered in couture detailing, sublime color and timeless style.

Why you need a touch of modern in your home

If you’ve flipped through our last few catalogs, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been quietly slipping more and more modern furniture pieces into our collections. The Ballard Designs aesthetic has always been about ‘the mix.’ We’re empowered (and we hope we’re empowering you too) to blend all styles of furniture, art, and accessories together. It’s that beautifully unique combination of things that helps you express your unique personality in your home, which is the goal. For this reason, we’ve been wanting to bring more contemporary accents into our rooms, like our Felicity Acrylic tables and more clean lined furniture, like our Dakota Sofa.

Today, we’re making a case for why you should have a few modern accents in your home!
