The 1970s was a time of excess, that is true, and it was especially so in the United Kingdom where limits were pushed as far as limits could go.

However, not all the mid-century patterns fall into this category because many people wanted something much more restrained but which still looked modern and up-to-the-minute.

Drawing on these ideas I have created the pattern above (which is so new it does not yet have a name). I have tried to combine a lot of the feel of that era but at the same time I have attempted to make it much more suitable for modern day living. I have, however, been careful to keep to British mid-century colours to help preserve a mood of authenticity and to make it suitable for use in a retro inspired mid-century room.

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