Spring 2012: Ellie Blue

Elephants on parade … Our week of sneak peeks marches on with the inspiration behind the rich shades of Ellie Blue, provided by our favorite commentator, Liz of Liz on Location.

“Explore the exotic nuances of an Indian market through traditional indigo textiles accented by the golden tints of the desert.  Imagine a land where alluring beasts roam free, becoming one with the natives, and a mystical nirvana exists among the locals.

Our hope was that this pattern would evoke the feeling of strolling through a distant marketplace; feeling the lush textiles and taking in the rich, bold dyes. The presence of the awe-inspiring elephant only heightens this sense of intrigue and whimsy.”
