Another wonderful find that my friend, Becky, and I stumbled onto on our last field trip was a charming little accessory store, Ballard and Blakely right across the street from Armoire’s and More on Lovers Lane in Dallas. How fun is that? You can buy your furniture at one store and then move across the street for the doo-dads! Love that! This quaint little shop is owned and operated by a sweet, lovely lady named, Abby Ballard. We were so impressed with her and her cozy, little shop we immediately advised her she needed to get her own blog! You’ll see why below.
Love The Warm, Welcoming Entrance
This little shop is filled with a variety of unusual pieces that would make any space more interesting. Though, at first glance, it appears to be only traditional or shabby chic-ish, there are jewels here that could fit in almost any space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and incorporate unusual pieces into your space for fun, interest or pizzazz! That’s what makes a space fun and not “stuffy”. Abby has merchandised it in a way that leads the eye gently around the store as you absorb every fascinating detail. Take a look:
