My version of a 1950s style pattern

A double helping today of 1950s inspired design which is shown, as you can see, on both the walls as wallpaper and on the curtains.

This pattern is inspired by 1950s designs but, and this is important, it is probably not the sort of pattern you would have seen at the time. I have tried to make the pattern more acceptable to modern eyes by keeping it a lot more regular and structured than the designs of the period. That is, I have tried to take the best out of the design while preserving modern thinking and ideas. The result, I hope you will agree, is a very pleasant pattern that works well as both wallpaper in the bedroom and as a curtaining material.

The 1950s pattern would have been much less ordered and to try to show the difference I am working on a variation of this design that follows 1950s thinking much more carefully and I will use this as both a wall covering and as curtaining and you can judge for yourself. Hopefully I will be able to post this later today.

This was assembled in Cinema 4D using my bedroom set and my living room curtain set while the design was constructed in Adobe Illustrator.
