Having just returned from Atlanta, my mind is still on the great design coming out of that civilized city. This fall, Ballard Designs asked the Parisian - inspired designer Suzanne Kasler to do a collection for them. The line includes all of her favorite soft and serene design elements, including starburst mirrors, quatrefoils, cerused finishes, and all white upholstery. Ballard welcomed Suzanne into the fold by creating vignettes in their Atlanta showroom, as seen here. The light airy quality she captures in her rooms is alive and well. Following the success of her book, Inspired Interiors by Rizzoli, Ballard was smart to capture this homegrown talent. The pieces she has designed are functional, beautiful, and one's you will want to have around for a long time.

A mass of roses welcomed guests to the opening soiree this past summer

Clusters of books and architectural molds make a nice tablescape

The vignettes are so well done, separated by these curved dividers. Suzanne's talent at displaying collections is seen here, with a bookcase full of white china
Seafoam green and white is a signature color combo often seen in her work

Suzanne also styled some rooms using all Ballard Designs:

All white is oh-so-right

Creating a seamless indoor outdoor living space, comfort is key in this covered outdoor living room

A really good looking line of goods. I think the cerused oak piece is fantastic. Thanks for the coverage. You seem to be EVERWHERE...
