A Ballard Vignette

I have shown you bits and pieces of our conservatory
where we keep our pool table.

The room is not finished
but I can show you a few more bits and pieces....

This is the angle from across the pool table.
The family room and kitchen are on the left 
and the living room is on the right.

These are the windows across the room.

This spot used to be empty
 but I always wanted a slim console table there.
Then I found Ballard's Newport Demilune!
A demilune was perfect for the spot.
  Since there are doorways on either side,
I didn't want any sharp edges in case someone ran into it.

The clock has been there for several years,
just waiting for something to sit below it.

Here is a view from the back corner
where another Ballard piece sits...
(just doing my best to keep them in business! - lol!)

 You might remember my Sonoma Bookcase.
I still need to add some spring accessories to liven it up.

And here we are back at the demilune.
The whole reason I used that fake orchid on top 
was to hide the light fixture.
Why would anyone place a light fixture right in the middle of that wall?

This will give you an idea of what I am hiding!

Slowly this room is coming together.
The walls have been Benjamin Moore's Providence Olive
for about 10 years.
I am thinking about changing them.
But that is a low priority at this time.
I can't add any more projects to my list!

Have you filled up any empty spaces lately?

  1. HA! Love your creative placement, Shelley! So something I would do, and the boys in my house would roll their eyes! :)

  2. Looking good, Shelley. Oh how I miss Ballard's outlet.

    1. I would LOVE to go to a Ballard's outlet! As you can see, I buy so many things from them!

  3. Hey Shelley! That piece is perfect! You and me both are keeping them in biz :-) xo

  4. Your room looks great with your choices of furniture from Ballard.

  5. Looks like its really starting to come together. Can't wait to see more. Thanks for sharing, liz

  6. That table is perfect there and good job hiding the outlets. They always place them in weird places.

  7. Your conservatory is coming out really well, the demilune looks perfect on that wall! Great idea to hide the outlet behind the orchid.

  8. Shelley I love all you have done!! I have the same issue with light switches and plugs!

  9. Looks lovely! I'm hosting a new linky party at

    I would love to have you!

  10. The room looks lovely and I think your demilune is the perfect addition. Just a thought: have you considered painting the light fixture outlet the same color as the wall? It's pretty amazing how that makes those necessary but obnoxious things disappear!

  11. fantastic Shelly! Those windows are amazing! Must be a room filled with beautiful light! What a fun place to entertain. Have a great week sweetie!
