We couldn’;t have been more excited to sponsor?Haven Conference again this year! It’;s always a fun time, and we love being surrounded by other decor-philes! We thought we’;d share all that went on during this fun weekend, starting with the living rooms we put together for the conference and ending with the fabulous party we were lucky enough to host!

For the past two years, we’;ve loved providing furniture for the conference attendees to relax between sessions, sit and catch up with new friends, and even just check their email. To outfit the spaces this year, we were inspired by bold colorssolid throw pillow covers, especially coral! If anyone can get on board with a vibrant color and tons of pattern, we know its these stylish DIY and decor bloggers. We picked some of our favorite upholstered pieces and outfit?them in a variety of fabrics?—;?solids, patterns, and bold designs.

We got to go wild with bold patterns, like animal print, and we loved seeing everyone enjoying the spaces we designed.

Of course a space isn’;t complete without an arrangement of fresh flowers and some of our favorite accessories.

We left no stone unturned in these ‘;rooms,’; incorporating shimmering mercury glass, tons of throw pillows, and even?lamps!

One of our favorite spaces was the Welcome area where we used two of our?Tate Twin Sleepers, upholstered in a bold chevron print. These are ultra-comfy pieces, so we knew they’;d make the perfect spots to sit down after hours of traveling!

In addition to furnishing the conference spaces, we hosted our second annual styling challenge! If you follow Ballard Designs on Instagram, you may have seen the photo above of everyone rushing to grab accessories! This year, we challenged conference attendees to style up a Ballard Designs Coffee table with accessories. Attendees were put in groups of 5 and given 10 minutes to show us their loveliest tables.

When making the investment in beautiful bed linen, it’s equally as important to care for it correctly to ensure longevity.

To the sane minded the 1980’s was a period of time that fashion didn’t just forget but actually never met- a particularly bad hair day or dodgy photograph we want to hide at the bottom of the pile. The follicle sin against mankind that was the Perm was huge- and women’s hairstyles were no better! Shoulder pads where epic, snakeskin was hissing its way onto the hangers and both Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lauper were fashion icons- dark days indeed.
