Decorating Above an Armoire

  • How to Decorate Team


Dear Ballard Designs,

First I just want to commend you on putting out a fabulous catalogue. I look forward to getting it in the mail. It helps give us homeowners ideas on how to put together a welcoming environment for our families. Thank You!

Now on to my question. Could you please give ideas on how to decorate above my beautiful waxed pine armoire?


We’re so happy to hear that you love the catalogue. Thank you for the compliment!

We searched our photo archives for pretty ways to decorate above your armoire and we’ve attached several ideas. A few things to try:

  • A wide plaque or series or prints that are about the same width as the armoire
  • A series of 3-5 glass or ceramic jars/vases
  • Baskets
  • Plants

Either go with one oversized item or stick to the “odd” rule and display a combination of 3 or 5 things.

Happy Decorating,

The Style Studio Team
