Miles Redd for Ballard Designs

Hi everyone!  While my last post was about calming neutrals, I am switching up gears and discussing pure glamour. Famed interior designer Miles Redd has partnered with Ballard Designs to produce a line of amazingly glamourous furniture and accessories with a distinct Hollywood Regency look.  I mean he did write a book called “The Big Book of Chic” after all.  Miles does bright, colorful, unexpected designs and no one room he does is alike.  One look at these photos and I want to ditch neutrals.  The paring of colors, patterns and textures is too much fun.

Here the white mirror, console and chair balances out the wild Chinoiserie wallpaper.  I love the shell console.  I used to collect shells growing up, so anything with a shell motif is nostalgic for me.

 

The glam factor is notched up a bit here.  The bold use of pops of green, the edgy coffee table and leopard print all work together beautifully.

Most of the funiture can be customized in any one of Ballard’s amazing fabrics, like the blue spot fabric below.

I adore this Hollywood Regency-style mirror paired with this lacquered black chest.  The possibilities for using this mirror are endless.

Pattern in the bedroom anyone?

The shape of this waterfall console and its matching bench is so unique and is a definite centerpiece.

I am afraid I would never eat again if I had this black lacquered dining table.  I find the design of the table legs to be particularly beautiful.

Here are a few of my favorite individual pieces from the 28-piece collection.

Waterfall Console

The pieces are not terribly priced which makes a high-end designer look affordable to more people. I am considering getting the black lacquered riser featured above to use on my coffee table or in a multitude of spaces in my home.

Have you ever purchased from Ballard Designs?  It truly is catalog decorating at its best!

What’s New at Ballard Designs

Hi lovely readers!  I picked up the new Ballard Designs catalog over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see they had a variety of new items.

The style at Ballard is right up my alley.  It is founded in the traditional, but they also throw in modern and whimsical accents.  Here are my picks from their new catalog:

Ballard 2016 1 The new Octavia bookcase is just so fun and unique.  How fun would it be to display decor accents in the little octagons?  It comes in a variety of colors as well.

The Felicity line of acrylic end and coffee tables are just what I mean when I say that Ballard injects a little modern into their traditional designs.

Ballard 2016 The nailhead trim adds so much to the simple lines of the Haynes dining chair.

Ballard 2016 4 I am not a huge fan of animal print, but I find the antelope print on this rug to be so serene.  I would love to incorporate it into one of my neutral spaces.  Here it is used in a living room.  So rich and luxurious, right?

The imperfect chevron print on these pillows would create a graphic punch in any space.

I am on the lookout for art for our new home and I have always loved the dreamy abstract art from Ballards.  This blue piece from the new catalog is no exception.

If you have been reading the blog for a while, you know I am a huge fan of faux bamboo.  Can’t get enough of it!  This bamboo sconce would be perfect in an entry way or hallway.

One of my favorite things I saw in the catalog was not even something new.  It is a deal they are running on the Dayna chairs.  An oldie but a goodie.  It is one of their Best of Ballard sales.  You can get two side chairs for $399.00 or an arm-chair for $249.00.  Did I mention how much I love faux bamboo?  If you are a fan too, this is a great time to pick them up on sale, as they rarely go on sale.
