Last week I shared the behind-the-scenes of the design process of this room. Today I can finally share the finished result! A neutral room that has some subtle masculine energy… the exact vibe I was going for.
I’m also sharing an IGTV video today on Instagram that walks you through the development of this space. One of the most unique things I learned in this process about Ballard Designs was how incredibly personalized you can make their pieces. Their upholstered furniture selection of over 85 pieces can have one of hundreds of their fabric designs and colors for both the base fabric and the welt piping. Or you can bring or mail in your own fabric and they will upholster their pieces in it. The possibilities of customization are on another level.
I love these Larkin chairs so much. They swivel and glide! We rock Hudson in them, feed him, read, have phone conversations in them… I know they’re going to be so functional and comfortable in our house. I chose the Stockton Cream fabric and love how custom and luxe they came out.
Last but not least on fabric (if you can’t tell… I could literally talk about this for days), we chose Sunbrella fabric for the sofa in the shade Adena Pure Performance for many reasons. I love choosing neutral anchor pieces and accessorizing with color and patterns. I also have a 10 week old. Which means function is equally important as appearance. Sunbrella fabric is crazy, y’all. It is made to withhold anything. Thankfully we haven’t needed to spot clean just yet but when that time comes, water and dish soap will take care of it. Watch this video. This fabric is literally made for durability which is why it trumped other fabric swatches for our home.
Something that I think makes this room look so polished and styled is the mix of prints. Koko with Stockton fabric, the Casa Florentina rug and an antelope lumbar pillow… that’s what makes it the room look unique and personalized. And that is an area where I really leaned into Robin who I was paired with through Design Solutions (more about that here). It’s those kinds of decisions that feel so much better when they’re supported by an expert.
And I think Robin nailed – I am so beyond happy that I followed her insight and expertise!
