Spring colors and triangles for a coffee table named “Elusine”

FrogTapebeauty frogtapebeauty2

It is definitely Spring, and I cannot even tell you how her colors have inspired this piece of furniture. The blooming trees, the green green grass, and the many flowers opening their faces to the sun have me very inspired.

Remember when I lamented a bit about the Pantone color of the year being radiant orchid? I am not a huge fan of purple in any shade…but I was determined to find a way to use it my work…and at the same time stay true to the Knack aesthetic. In this coffee table design, I use radiant orchid not once…but TWICE! Once in its original state, and then I added a little somethin’ somethin’ {white paint} to create a little lighter shade. I absolutely love the color palette of pink, orange, lavender, gold, and orchid, and this palette was completely inspired by a bouquet of Ranunculus flowers I purchased a couple weeks back.

I think it is fun, yet again, to combine the hard edges and points of the geometric triangles with the feminine and curvy lines of this sweet table. The perfect pairing if you will.

I used FrogTape® to create the custom triangle designs on top of the table, and there is a full step by step “how to” up on the FrogTape blog here! If you decide that miss Elusine needs to come live with you, she IS available for purchase at Knack! {and if you freakin’ love the dish towel hanging on the wall, {me! me!} you can get that at Knack too!} We are all about some goodness for the home around here!

Hope you enjoy!

    Have you already talked about “The Quick Brown Fox…” towel? SO cute! Do you have that available for sale? Is it linen or cotton?

    • Barb Blair

      Hey Vicki! I DO sell the fox dish towels and they are a really beautiful linen.

      • Vicki K

        Hi Barb – forgive me if it is obvious, but I don’t see where I can purchase one of the “quick brown fox” linens in your shop. Thanks!

          Vicki, I am so sorry we did not get those loaded in the shop yet! :/ we had a big list to get loaded and we almost finished but not quite…. It will probably be Tuesday or Wednesday. If you would like to email me, I can get one right out to you. barb@knackstudios.com
