Elegant and Effortless: 3 Ways to Recreate This Look

This delicate and feminine glimpse from Knack Studio is seducing me with soft whispers of playful colors (click here for more on Knack Studio). The combination of newsprint and coral furniture is a match to covet.

I borrowed this bit from Barb Blair’s ravishing portfolio. Here are three (almost) effortless ways to realize a similar look inside your walls.

1. Newspaper taxidermy is a whimsical way to sculpt a newsprint pattern into an animalistic mount. Scroll through this Design*Sponge tutorial by Mollie Greene (creator of the handsome moose above).

2. Order this Recycled Glass Balloon Vase from VivaTerra to top your favorite horizontal surface. Sink any stems with large graphic blooms into this vase to balance the bulbous base.

3. Barb was gracious enough to share her finish selection – the elegant wall color is Forde Abbey by Ralph Lauren (you can always match the color in an environmentally friendly paint). Indulge in this guide if you need paint finish tips.

You can always visit the Knack Studio store for an original furniture design. Or enjoy Barb’s Before & After Basics column to whip up your own creation.
