Mid-century modern art movements exerted a certain influence on the patterns and designs of the middle years of the 20th century as can often be seen.

This design uses the blocks of modern art along with a bold border to produce a pleasant ‘all over’ effect that looks so good when used in a modern setting. In truth that was probably the original intention and so here I have used it in the very conservative dining room of a typical modern house or apartment.

The colouring is designed to conform yet to be bright and restful however this design does lend itself to more contrasty patterns as you will see in the next post. However for this design I wanted to create something that looks nice and peaceful and which would have a majority appeal. Before you ask – yes, I would have that in my apartment!

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