Curtains For A Mid-century Room

Patterns were a very important part of mid-century design and decoration and nowhere was this more evident than in the design of the coverings of the windows.

I’m not sure why but in the 1950s onwards much was made of simple and often stark geometric designs. Sure, these sort of designs had been used before but they were then always much more ornate, often containing superfluous and additional serifs and ornamentation.

This design could hardly be more simple consisting of offset circles but, of course, the pattern is then harder to place and much easier to get wrong. Hopefully I have not fallen into any of these traps. As usual the colours are taken from the British Standard palette used at the time and I have confined this pattern just to browns, so loved by mid-century designers.

The room itself is just a simple living room set but it does have that indefinable midcentury look. However, these curtains could look equally as good in a modern apartment and, as fabric, as cushions.

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