One of my all time favorite home decor catalogs is Ballard Designs. I love the way this company mixes comfort and style with a European-Inspired timeless appeal. Their fresh focus for decorating seems to work with so many different home styles. My own home has a healthy scattering of Ballard designs from the bedroom and bath to the kitchen and the outdoors. Combined with my collection of vintage finds and antiques, Ballard's designs create a pleasing mix for the eye and a warm inviting home space. The latest catalog just arrived in my mailbox yesterday and I found myself drawn to the stylish outdoor decor and furnishings and their relaxed elegance. Perfect timing, since I had been working in my yard all day, re-potting an array of bright spring flowers and cleaning up my gazebo area and porches. I was already feeling inspired by the gorgeous spring day and Ballard only added to the inspiration! A few of my favorite picks to enhance your outdoor living and entertaining space...
|Corsica Outdoor Oversized Chair|
I am in love with this soothing color...
|Corsica Outdoor Ottoman|
|Antique Letter Indoor/Outdoor Rug|
I purchased this rug for my office but I can imagine it
looking great on the back porch as well.
These stepping stones are definitely on the wish list...
|Leville Copper Wall Fountain|
This copper fountain is spectacular. I have a cast iron one on my back porch
and just love the sound of the trickling waterfall.
Love the planters....I'm just a sucker for almost anything
with a fleur de lis, but these are truly elegant.
|Scrolled Wall Sign|
A favorite which is displayed on my garage wall,
in addition to the matching scrolled wall sign staked in my front yard.
|Outdoor Napoleonic Bee Pillow With Border|
Cute bee pillows...
Love, love, love candlelight...anytime, anywhere.
|Personalized Italian Wine Chiller & Coasters|
Just add bread and cheese and, of course, a few friends...
|Rosette Indoor/Outdoor Clock|
|Personalized Shield Hanging Plaque|
I think this has such a European appeal, love it.
