Sweet Dreams Are Made of…These Beds!

By: Danielle Clockel and Melody Richardson

A good night’s rest is an important aspect of health that often gets sacrificed in our busy lives. Let’s start changing that! Get excited about getting to sleep by choosing a bed you love.

Vanguardbed

The Anderkit bed from Vanguard is beautiful in its simplicity. Featuring an upholstered headboard as well as a canopy, the simple shape keeps this piece current and fresh.

Talk about sweet dreams! Joseph Walsh’s Enignum canopy bed is a sculptural, ethereal cocoon sure to lull you into a perfectly serene slumber.

Resourcedecorbed

All of us went a little gaga over this bed from Resource Decor. The Duke poster bed is the sleek, modern canopy bed of your dreams.

Anthropologiebed

Maybe your home is a little too petite for a grand four poster bed. No problem! Get the drama of a canopy without sacrificing space with this curved rattan bed from Anthropologie.

CB2bed

A bed doesn’t have to be extravagant to be a knockout. Take the Jarvis bed from CB2. With a mid century spindle headboard and 100% leather pad, it has a unique masculine flair that makes us swoon.

Think about it — the more you love your bed, the more you’ll want to dive in and drift off to sleep to recharge. Set aside some time to relax, you deserve it!

Design Challenge: And the Winner Is…

By: Shelby Adamson Pawlak

This week we conclude our design challenge of my bedroom. I have chosen a design from one of our amazing designers and let me tell you, this was one of the HARDEST choices I have ever had to make!

First, I wanted to share the winner of our voters on Facebook and Instagram, and it was a close one! The design challenge winner from all of your popular votes was…Danielle!

My overall winner along with my husband’s input (it is our room, after all) was a really tough choice. Our two favorites were Stephanie and Danielle, but after careful consideration and much deliberation our pick is…Stephanie!

I honestly loved so many pieces from each of our designers here, so here is my compilation of everyone’s choices to create the perfect respite for my husband and myself:

It was so enlightening to be on the client side of things, to have my input reviewed and put through the Balance Design “filter.” It made me realize how important communication is, and the questions that I, as a designer, need to ask my clients. There were suggestions made that matched my Pinterest board that I loved, and it made me feel like my voice was really heard, but there were also things that I would never think of implementing that I ended up loving. I believe that as a team, our collaboration at Balance Design makes us strong designers, and as a client I am incredibly happy with the outcome. Now just stay tuned for the implementation! Thank you for all of your input!
