Providing the paint colors used in Ballard Designs catalogs can be difficult， because we constantly shoot at actual homes that have been painted by their owners. However， our team of stylists has chosen paint colors that are as close to the actual wall colors as we could find. These colors will blend with our furniturebed pillow covers， accessories and fabric.
As with any paint， various light conditions can affect how the color will look in your environment. We recommend purchasing a small paint sample. Paint a large square， let it dry and look at it in both the day and at night (paint color changes as light changes). This method is inexpensive and will save you from making a much bigger and more expensive mistake. Also note that printed colors will not match paint chips exactly， so always try a sample on your wall before you start your project. For simplicity， we use Benjamin Moore paint matches. Most paint stores are happy to match any color that you bring them.pillow cases linen
We hope that you enjoy reviewing the colors chosen. We think the colors will give you a great background for your Ballard Look.

With Spring here, it’s time for some spring cleaning! I’ve been itching to get my garage organized for over a year! Cleaning your garage may not seem like something you’re looking forward too, but like any area of your home, it feels SO nice when it’s done! ?I’m actually going to share my not so flattering photos of my very messy garage…….because life gets messy. (Unless you’re my inlaws, they have the perfectly organized everything…….drat!)
This colder weather we’ve been having is totally sticking around.? The sun has been really bright and shiny, so I keep thinking we’re going to have warmer days…..but the temp is staying cool.? SO, I finally admitted that my children needed warmer clothing.?
While the classic color combination of black and white—a tried and true formula—never really goes out of style, the daring duo is de rigueur these days. Decorating in black and white in any setting, from living room to dining room to bedroom or even a staircase, makes a deliciously bold statement that is always sophisticated and never, ever dull. If you find yourself drawn to this high-impact look, try some of our tips below.
