This Weekend: Sample Sale at Balance Design

By: Stephanie Andrews


This weekend is the Candler Park Fall Fest, and in support of this community event Balance Design Studio and Gallery will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm. We’re gearing up for a new season and need to make room, which means it’s sample sale time! Come visit, check out our designer deals, and chat with us. Ask us how we can help you with your home projects. From new constructions and renovations to pulling it all together, we’re here for all your interior design conundrums.


Never been to our studio before? Stop in and get to know us! We love curating local art for clients (like these abstract paintings by Ashley Hizer) and creating exclusive custom pieces, like this credenza designed by Balance Design’s Elisabeth Paulson.


If your home is feeling a bit lackluster, talk to us about it. We’ll help you select the perfect finishing touches. Custom pillows, handmade candles, and our favorite design books and magazines are ready to amp up your space. We also have a variety of petite pottery from local ceramic artist Chelsea Goff, including porcelain and raku pieces.

If you’re going to the Candler Park Fall Fest, be sure to stop by and get to know us over light refreshments. We’re here this Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th from 10am to 4pm.

Party Time, Balance Design Style!

By: Stephanie Andrews

Our grand opening party was last Thursday, and it was a hit! We had an amazing turnout of friends, clients, neighbors, and colleagues. Ashley Hizer and Michael Bryant, two of our featured artists, were on the scene to mingle and talk about their artwork. We even had a raffle with special prizes to benefit our friends in Nepal, a cause very dear to my family and I.

In addition to our amazing team, comprised of myself, Elisabeth Paulson, Verena Salmé, Danielle Cornely, and Samantha Henning, we had some additional (and much appreciated) support. Guy Salmé provided music and on-site photography, and Drew Gillespie was our star bartender. Let’s not forget my daughter, Allie, and nephew from Nepal, Kush, who handmade hundreds of (delicious!) truffles for the hors d’oeuvres table.

It was wonderful to see clients from years past as well as curious neighbors and colleagues come out to support us. I feel so incredibly blessed for such an amazing network. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Balance Design Grand Opening!

It’s finally happening. We are pleased to officially announce the grand opening of the Balance Design Interior Design Studio and Gallery. After many long months of plans, renovations, and designs, we’re ready to reveal our brick and mortar studio to the world. 

Get to know our featured artists Ahsley Hizer, Michael Bryant, and Chelsea Goff. With modern abstract paintings, gold leaf photography, and refined ceramics (all made here in Atlanta), there’s something for everyone. We will also reveal our custom line of pillows and scented candles, our favorite design books and magazines, and some very special pieces to support our friends in Nepal.


We welcome all clients, friends, and neighbors to come celebrate with us. You are the ones who have made this possible with all your support over the past 12 years! Come by, have some hors d’oevres and wine, and see what we’ve been working on.
