Flower Power Feature Wall

Flower Power Wall

The 1960s was a time of great experimentation and innovation although, it has to said, not all of what was produced was good.

One thing that people did experiment with which was beneficial was scale and colour. In particular, they produced colours that had never had a life before and applied these to designs in sizes that sometimes where considered shocking.

But there was another innovation that is not perhaps so well appreciated. The designers of the time began to reduce elements to their most basic shape and line. In many cases gone was any pretence of making elements look real and in their place was a representation of what was intended. The classic example is the 1960s flower which appeared in time for the start of Flower Power and all that went with it.

Using these ideas, I have created a wall covering using brightly coloured 1960s flowers against a darker background as the feature wall of a modern apartment. Teamed with it are poppy red, plain curtains along with a plain canary yellow wall to create a spacious-looking, light, bright, modern living space.

The design has not yet been made into wallpaper although this is probably going to happen in the next few months once I can sort out the backlog of designs I already have.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
