Bredon Green Pattern

Green is a colour that I tend to use less frequently than perhaps I should, particularly when it was a quite large player in mid-century UK.

So, I have used lovely Bredon Green (5-064 of the British Standard) as the background colour for this collection of shapes and lines. I have to admit that I like these seemingly random collection of shapes. The idea is to form a pattern that does not take the eye but allows the fabric to ‘wash over the viewer’. The effect of this is subtle and great for interior use since it does not dominate or take over.

In the image I have used this pattern as a fabric design for the curtains and the cushions to provide continuity and width because the visitor will enter the room in the direction you are looking. The walls incidentally use another British Standard colour in use at the time – pine green. I think this room looks cool, colour coordinated and fresh and I am pleased with the result.

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