Ballard Designs {new for spring}

Call me so yesterday, but I like Ballard Designs and have even shopped them in the past for clients. Ballard Designs sends “to the trade” emails as a way to give us a sneak peek of new collections in advance of their next catalog release to the public. I spotted a few things you may like so of course I have to share….

Okay so there’s this green and white Miranda Bedding that looks pretty nice — it’s all Kate Spade meets John Robshaw. Well that comparison works for me. I like the elegant Elden Cocktail Ottoman with it’s curvy legs and tufted top. Imagine the design book stacking opportunities on this thing! I’m also a fan of the affordable Seagrass Pendant because it has a Scandinavian vibe to it. I imagine a few of these hovering over a long farmer’s table just like the amazing Room Redux that Victoria recently pulled together for one of her blog readers right here. The Madeira Rug is another fave, great pattern — you notice it but it doesn’t dominate or battle with other patterns in a space.

decor8 Discount: Warp & Weft {Save 30%}

Warp & Weft is a decor8 sponsor and they specialize in antique, modern, custom, and decorative carpets. Based in NYC, they’re an established company preferred amongst New York’s most talented architects and interior designers, and for good reason, they’re carpet experts offering a gorgeous selection hand picked from all over the world. I’ve noticed lots of them in homes featured on the pages of Domino and Elle Decor. They’re exquisite.

I’m drooling for this subtle pastel paisley print or the woodgrain pattern. Oh and have you heard? The paisley is making a huge comeback for interiors in ’08. I especially like the pattern featured above because it’s so soft and okay, I’ll confess, I do imagine it in some posh London Edwardian flat and honestly believe that a rug like this may have the power to take me there the moment it touches my American floors.

If you’re in the market for a beautiful carpet, Warp & Weft is offering decor8 readers a very exclusive discount of 30% off of the following collections: Hampton, Hampton Bay, and all in stock Modern Rugs. You can locate them online only here (enter when prompted Room: sale Password: decor8) and here.

How about these ethnic prints and patterns? Again, just lovely. Great choices for a bedroom or living room. You really can’t go wrong with a blue and white rug in a bold ethnic pattern for most living rooms, at least that’s been my experience.

If you see something that interests you, please email info AT and don’t forget to specify that you would like decor8 pricing. You can also contact the showroom directly at 212-481-4949. This is a very special savings, I hope you are able to use it. This offer is valid until December 18th – so hurry!

Thank you Warp & Weft for this exclusive deal.

Congratulations Oh Joy!

I was just getting my daily Oh Joy! fix when oops I clicked on a link and landed on her business website spotting this beautiful image below. As I clicked around some more, I discovered that we have a star on the rise – Joy recently designed a few rug patterns for Urban Outfitters (here and here). This is quite exciting, congrats Joy!
