What I’m Loving: New Stuff From Ballard Designs

I get so stupidly excited when new stuff comes out from vendors I use a lot for design projects. As of late, I have been giddy over all the new stuff coming out from Ballard Designs, a company I use a lot for budget friendly jobs.  Take a peek at some of my favorite new things- so good, right?

This table skirt blew my mind. Know why?

Because it looks just like this one I’ve coveted forever from designer Tom Scheerer! Having this made would cost at least three times as much as they are charging.

More favorites- this tufted ottoman with tape trim (many options for the trim!) and this studded long x-bench for the end of the bed!

DYING over the lacquered faux bamboo barstools.

If you have bookshelves you need ceramic horse bookends (of course), and this little sweet writing desk is great for a small apartment!

That little stool is covered in a VERY pricey Kelly Wearstler fabric and was priced cheaper than 2 yards of just the fabric!

Team EGD’s Summer Picks!

My company may be called Erin Gates Design, but it’s certainly isn’t a one woman show.  I have two awesome ladies helping me out- my right hand woman Lindsey, whose been with me over three years and does anything and everything (I like to refer to her as “the unicorn” because she can do billing and design a room with equal skill, which is rare).  And recently we welcomed Allison to the team to assist with lots of stuff as well as helping get this books done. She is also a blogger, so pop on over to her site too!

Both these ladies have great taste and so I wanted to start sharing what is on THEIR wishlists these days! I pretty much also want everything they do, so it goes to show our team is on the same wavelength!

Lindsey

Sofa Splendor

I must have been living under a rock not to know about sofa.com. I guess I never thought such a simplistic web address would hold such a stylish selection of sofas! A lesson to never judge a link by it’s….title? Anywhoo- the photo styling is so killer and the fabric selection looks pretty amazing (I ordered some and will report back). Had to pass this source along!

(I’m kind of dying over this picture)

There are chairs and ottomans too…

How FUN is this fabric?

And this?

And some fun throw pillows!

 

Setting the Table with Zara Home

I know every blogger and her mother posted about the new Zara Home launch yesterday and I hate to be redundant, but I had to post about the one section of the site I love- the tableware!  I really love all the gold accents offered as well as the mix of traditional and modern styles.  As I started playing around with the offerings I got an image of one of my favorite dining rooms in my head. Something about scenic wallpaper makes me weak int he knees….

So here’s a fun table setting based on this traditional look, all from the new Zara Home! (I need those horse glasses for my bar!) No need to wallpaper when you can get a hint of the look through placemats (and I was tempted to throw in some leopard napkins too….)  A perfect looks for a less expected looking Thanksgiving table, no?

1./ 2./ 3./ 4./ 5./ 6./ 7./ 8./ 9.

I’d do a centerpiece like these….
