Real Simple + Ballard Designs

Do you love Ballard Designs? So do we, and we were excited to partner with them to share some of our favorite decorating tips in the creation of three different rooms: a family-friendly living room, an office-guest room combo, and bedroom with lots (and we mean lots) of storage.

Our senior home market editor Kelley Carter designed the rooms and made videos with her tips for each. You can watch the videos below and see additional photos of the rooms on Ballard Designs.
