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

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.

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!
