Sneak Peek: Balance Design’s “Bright & Bold” Collection.

By: Danielle Clockel

It’s a color explosion! We’re in the thick of planning our 2018 spring/summer collection, and if you can’t tell, it’s all about color. Bright and bold, with influences from abroad as well as here in Atlanta, this warm weather season is going to exude ALL the positive energy at Balance Design! (Seriously, how can you frown in the presence of fuchsia embroidery?)

Stay tuned for more information about our artists, custom pieces, and open house date.

Obsession: Black and White Patterned Tile

By: Verena Dalati Salmé

Lately I’ve been really inspired by bold, patterned tile, which may or may not have anything to do with my upcoming trip to Mexico. The movement, the contrast, the amazing statement a wall of this beautiful tile makes–I love it all.

The echo tile is the kind of tile that gets better the more you use it in one place. The Corazon restaurant in Portland has the right idea.

It’s hard to go wrong with this classic pattern, so go ahead and fill a whole wall with it. Seriously, do it.

Maybe you can’t decide which you like better: organic or geometric patterns. That’s okay, mix ’em up! The monochromatic aspect keeps the patchwork tile eclectic, not chaotic.

Black and white doesn’t have to be boring. Go big with patterns and make a statement!
