Catalog Finds: Ballard Designs

When a new catalog arrives in my mailbox during the week, it usually goes into a substantial TBR {To Be Read} pile on the ottoman in my home office. But when my Ballards catalog showed up on Friday afternoon, all my other to-dos were done, so I immediately hunkered down with a cup of tea and dove in.

Did you know they recently teamed up with Traditional Home to do a living room makeover for one lucky family? And did you know they’ve also partnered with Southern Living for Idea House décor? I’m fortunate enough to have a Ballards Backroom outlet less than ten miles away from me, so I’m a regular prowler there, but their catalog is sometimes too yummy to resist.
Here’s my favorite finds from this latest issue:

Olivia Mirrored-Top Side Table {available in two finishes}… perfect in scale and style for my home office makeover!

Pair of Clay Doves… because it’s all about the birds this spring! But I like the finish on these, as if they’d been outside for a while. [the little potted orchids are sweet, too!]

Lime Garden Seat… been around a while but still the perfect punch of color. {Actually there’s a less expensive version at World Market—shhh}

Pair of Chocolaterie Boxes… love these for unusual storage or display—or both! They’d look great in traditional, shabby chic, or contemporary décor.

Bee stool… I can think of 20 different spots to use this little charmer in my home—any place you need a little elevation. Fabulous finish.

Allie pendant light fixture… love, love, love. Available in four different tints, these beauties mimic my beloved demijohn bottles.

Which one is your favorite??
